Origami Box in Box with Facebook Live Video Tutorial

Today’s project is one of my favorite Origami projects! This is an Origami Box in Box, but Paper Pixie style!

I’ve made these boxes for years and finally got my act together to demonstrate it for you! The version I demonstrate in the video is created with a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper, but I’ll include scoring measurements below for 8″ x 8″ and 12″ x 12″!

Here’s what the inside looks like:

Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I shared:

I hope you’ll join me next Wednesday on my Facebook Page for my next live demonstration! Something funny always happens (wink)!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
