This box is made from six 6" square pieces of paper.

This box is found in many books and on the Internet. It is made with six pieces of paper. Origami and scrapbook paper work well. The following slide show demonstrates each step as it is folded. This takes patience and practice. I suggest you work with plain paper to practice. If you are someone that works better with diagrams, I suggest any book by Tomoku Fuse. http://www.librarything.com/author/fusetomoko
Once you learn to make origami boxes, it is addicting and they can be used for so many things. Check out Fabric origami workshop on line if you haven't yet. http://www.fabricorigami.com/ The possibilities are endless.

This star is made from 12 triangular origami boxes, as in the far right hand corner of photo.
