Once I recieved one origami square box from my freind.

How to Fold Square Box with Lid
- We must fold a square main box and a lid
- Prepare 4 square papers for the main box and another 4 for the lid, all the same size.
- Cut the papers for the box a little smaller than the lid for closing the lid when finished
This is the finished main box.
Choose any size any color as you prefer, I choose A4 for this tutorial.
No need the ruler! Just fold and cut it to a square paper.
If your paper is colorful, don't throw away.
You can also collect them to make another project such as
Woven Bracelet from Milk Carton/Tetra Paks.
but you can use papers instead. See DIY from link below.
Prepare 4 square sheets for the lid.
Then another 4 for the box but cut them smaller.
Begin with a box.
Fold it in half along its vertical middle to crease a centerline.
Fold the top edge down to the centerline.
Fold in half again.
Fold to the right.
