Check out the origami box video below to learn how to make the ever practical and cute masu box. This is a true traditional favourite - and so useful! You can use these little boxes to hold just about anything, or to give to people as gifts... holding another origami treasure perhaps? Use your imagination, these boxes are a wonderful example of the magic of origami.
To make a lid for the box, simply make another box that is slightly larger than the first - using a piece of paper about half a centimeter larger (depending on the original size) will usually work well.
