Origami Star Box Tutorial
March 24th, 2010 by Craftylocks

This is one of those ‘not much needed’ paper crafts for children. All need is some square paper to craft up this super star box

starbox14 Start with a square piece of paper. Make four folds across the paper.
starbox2 Bring the top and bottom corners together and tuck in the other two sides.
starbox3 With the opening at the top, fold one side along to the central fold.
starbox4 Open up the flap and press it open.
starbox5 Tuck the side of the flap under itself.
starbox6 Now do the same to the other flap on that side, turn it over and repeat on the other side.
starbox8 Fold the four flaps down as far as you can.
starbox11 Pull the flaps open and push the bottom of the star box against a table, using your hand inside the box to make the shape.
starbox12 Wow – beautiful, now it just needs to be filled with treats or a present for someone!
