The model above is simply a variation of the classic tato box, folded starting with a blintzed square paper. While I consider this original in the sense that I doodled it, most probably it has been done by someone else before already since the method is very simple. I used the same method in coming up with the classic star box enhanced with four petals.
But doodling further from the above model, I came up with a horse, as shown below:
Each of these gift boxes is folded from a single sheet of square paper.
A simple model, actually a variation of the starbox basket I posted before.
The classic masu box is sometimes embellished with a divider which is folded using a square paper that is separate from the one used to fold the box. But what I wanted is to fold a masu box with divider using a single sheet of paper. After some doodling, I came up with this, which I folded starting with the waterbomb base:
The photo below presents my model — the one on the right– side by side with Jun Maekawa’s model — the one on the left. The latter, which is featured in his book Genuine Origami (2007), is folded beginning with the bird base. I folded these two boxes using separate sheets of square paper of the same size.
Another simple application of strip grafting.
The upper photo shows a simple box model which I folded from a waterbomb base. By collapsing or flattening the model, I came up with a tato as shown in the lower photo.
I folded this box starting with a blintz base, which is then folded into thirds horizontally and vertically. Paper used: 6.75″ x 6.75″ origami paper.
