Everyone who has been intrigued with origami will find new delight with unit origami, which is the art of folding paper so that it fits together to make another object-in this case, boxes. But folded into these boxes are the delightful, intricate patterns that only origami yields.
Like puzzles come to life under your fingertips, origami boxes are fun to make and delightful to give. (They are also splendidly personal gift boxes.) Naturally, changing the color or pattern of paper used can add still more variety to the designs.
