Make origami boxes shaped like candies

I tried making these little paper boxes shaped like candies, designed by Makato Yamaguchi. They're a project in a Toyo origami kit for boxes shaped like various sweets. Each candy half is one sheet of folded paper; one end fits inside the other to form a container. You can watch Heather's nice video tutorial right here on YouTube. Collapsing the candy ends is tricky, but I'm improving with practice!

Update: The video I used is no longer available, but here's another tutorial.

I love love love this boxes. I have made them once before, but now the youtube tutorial doesn't seem to be working. Is there any other tutorial? I would really like to make them again..
BTW - love your blog :)

Jessica Jones said...

Hmm, I don't know. Try a Google or YouTube search for origami candy boxes.

buhtel said...

I have tried that - searched every way I thought of on google and youtube - nothing but the picture of the made box... Just thought I would ask if you knew of another source. And if you ever happen to find one could you please let me know? Thank you anyway :)
