Diagrams: Shropshire Box

Edited by Jane Rosemarin
This box works best when folded from an 8-inch or larger square of heavier paper. See PDF diagrams.

This pinwheel-topped bank box follows an interesting sequence to create a set of four top flaps that form the lid. It’s easy to open and close, and you will want a row of them for storing troves of trinkets after a trip to the fair.

The Shropshire Box is one of 27 models that appear in my first origami book, “Fold This Box: Single-Sheet Designs for Origami Box Lovers” (Volume 1).
