It’s a Wrap: Triangle Origami Boxes

Good things come in tiny packages! I guess one type of candy packaging wasn’t enough for me this year. This year though, there’s an origami theme going on. Here’s a simple triangle origami box or pouch that can hold some loose candy like Skittles or M&Ms.

So, I pulled a couple sheets of scrapbook paper from my all seasons paper pad. I picked these three different but complementary sheets. I used Martha Stewart’s craft knife and bone folder, both of which I Try DIY will be selling online very soon as well.

You need to cut small squares. The size depends on how big you want your box to be. I cut 4-inch squares for this tutorial. You’ll need three pieces for one triangle box.

Start with one square, wrong side up.

Diagonally, fold the square in half to form a triangle.

Then, fold the square in half again to form a smaller triangle.

Unfold once. Fold the paper, making the right corner meet the top corner.

Do the same with the left corner. And you’re done with the folding for that first square.

Take your other two squares, and make all the same folds.

Open up the fold slightly. We will call the two flaps the WINGS, and the top corner the BEAK.

Don’t laugh now! It sounds silly, I know. I call them that, because that’s what they looked like to me.

Now, we’re going to have to connect the three pieces together. Take your first two pieces. Insert the WINGS of one piece into the BEAK of the other.

The two should be an easy puzzle to put together.

Next, you’ll take your third piece. Insert the WINGS of the third piece into the BEAK of the second one.

It should look something like this.

Slowly hollow out the center of the box or pouch. At this point, you can pour in your candy pieces inside. Once you’re done, insert the WINGS of the first piece into the BEAK of the last one. This will be the trickiest ones.
