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...
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!
Even a 6 inch square paper holds a lot of goodies!
