Watch Papercraft Origami Hexagonal Gift Box Tutorial [Author: paperkawaii] PLEASE CHECK OUT SECOND VIDEO FOR SQUASH FOLDS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bh4Yfjq9CA The cute Rilakkuma stickers were sent to me by http://www.coolpencilcase.com You can check out what they sent me at 16:15 on the video! They also sent me a cute Japanese style doll fineliner pen, 2 pink Sticker glitter craft pens, a red art mechanical pencil, and a pink gel neon highlighter to try out.
My favourite is the neon highlighter, it goes on quite rough, and then you can use your fingers to soften it out, it looks pretty bright! The Glitter pens are nice but I am not too skilled using them as you can see if you got to the to the end of the video..! The fineliner is of very good quality, I will use this a lot! I like the red mechanical pencil too, very useful! Please make sure the annotations are turned on! This hexagonal gift box is perfect as a gift box.
You will need: 2 x A4 paper (21 x 29.7 cm / 8.2 x 11.6 inches) paper clip bull-dog clip or small paper clip Ruler and knife or scissors.
I tried my best to show you how to squash down the inside of the box and then the outside of the lid, but as you can (or can't) see, its a bit of a fiddle! Just keep trying, make sure the folds are pretty precise and eventually you can just push it down and it will fall into place.
I wouldn't say it is advanced, I find the modular boxes a lot harder, more complicated and honestly, kind of ugly.
:) Please leave a comment, maybe I can help if you get stuck, if enough people ask, I can try and video again the squashing part at 06:21 and 12:29 :) More info on the origami model, and diagram: http://www.paperkawaii.com/2012/03/08/video-tutorial-origami-hexagonal-gift-box/ I do the squash folds again here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bh4Yfjq9CA Origami design by Tomoko Fuse
