Origami Favor Sunburst Box!

Origami Party Favor Candy Box!
I decided to teach the kids some origami...after all,
it's the best skill to have when surrounded by square sheets of paper!
Here's the step by step...
Square paper, folded in half all 4 ways...
That center where all the lines intersect will be 
the bottom center of the box...just fyi.
Tuck in 2 of the smaller squares
To make a square sandwich
Then fold over the sides to the center line make a kite shape.
Fold them from the loose points down...
Do this on all 4 edges.
Open up the folds to make their own little kite shape
Do this on all 4 sides
Then fold them over onto themselves...
Like this
Fold the tops over to the center line, just like you did on the other side





 Until you've folded all the edges in like this

 Then take the 4 flaps and fold them over...
 And crease them

 Repeat on all 4 sides...

 Open up the inside of the box...
 Pushing the bottom out gently!


Like this!
Curl the flaps if you want!
 Fill with candy!
Even a 6 inch square paper holds a lot of goodies!
Fun fun!

Thanks for this!! I learned to make these several years ago, and one time made them into little Easter baskets for my co-workers. They were perfect to hold 1 egg and some jelly beans and chocolate eggs.

I lost the instructions for this a long time ago. Now I can make them again!
