I love folding spirals and I think the queen of origami spirals would be Tomoko Fuse! So since it has been a long time since I folded boxes with spirals, I tried out this little 4-sided box, from her book ‘Let’s Fold Spirals‘. This box is the second of the 2 square boxes and is a pleasure to fold. It took me about 15 minutes to complete the full box, pretty fast I think.
I had used fairly sturdy paper (4*4 memo paper) to fold it, so the end box was also quite sturdy. I like the shape – the length is greater than the usual origami boxes. The spiral also gives the impression of an even lengthier box. And the slanting lines add a great touch.
Altogether a delightful box to fold
