How to make an origami Heart box (Tadashi Mori)

Hello there everybody! I'm Tadashi Mori and in this video here I'll show you how to make the top part of the Heart Box.

It's my own design and to make it we're going to use one square sheet of paper.

And the final size will be about 1/4 of the size of the paper.

So, this one here has color only on one side and although the bottom part is going to be white I'll also use a red paper, because you can see a little bit of the red color on the other side.

So, start by dividing here the paper in eight parts.

So, fold the paper in half.

Unfold.

Now, fold this side of the paper and this side up to the middle line.

Unfold both sides.

Now, divide each of these lines in half.

So, as you can see, I made a line here between these two lines.

Now, do the same thing here and keep doing this on all lines.

The model will look like this.

Now, you're going to fold th paper in half.

in this direction here.

Unfold the paper.

Now, with the white part facing upward you're going to fold making this side of the paper go up to the middle line.

And do the same thing here, on the other side.

Unfold the model and it's going to look like this.

Now, turn the model over and you're going to fold this side of the paper up to this line here.

Unfold the paper and do the same here, on the other side making this line go up to this line here.

And the model will look like this.

Now, turn the model over Hold the paper in this direction here and make a valley fold along this first line.

Now, make a mountain fold along the next line and we're basically just making here a zig-zag with these lines here.

So, make a valley fold along the next line and you're going to do the same thing here, starting from the other side.

Now, the model will look like this.

Now, turn the model over.

And the lines on this side should look like this.

So, make here a fold along this line here.

making this side of the paper align with this second line, like this.

Now, do the same thing here, to the other direction.

Now, you're going to fold both sides at the same time So, press here these sides of the paper As you can see, these folds are going to align with this first line.

Now, you're going to open here along the middle part.

As you can see, you have two layers on this side and two layers ont he other side.

And you're going to open like this.

So, align these layers really well.

And the model should look like this.

Now, you're going to pull here, one layer and we're going to reverse it by making here this fold go to the other direction.

Pull this layer a little bit.

Open this layer, like this.

And you're going to make a mountain fold along this line here.

Right? So, I made a moutain fold here.

And you're going to press this side of this layer making it get it's original shape.

Do the same thing here.

So again, you're going to pull this layer, only one layer.

Make a mountain fold along this line.

Press this side toward the middle.

And the model will look like this.

Now, you're going to fold along this line here.

And at this point here you have this small red square.

So, imagine align, like this.

You're going to fold this point here, the corner of the paper up to the middle of this square.

So, you're going to fold about this much.

Do the same thing here on the other side.

Now, unfold these two flaps and you're going to fold these two layers downward making a fold along this line here.

So, it's going to be something like this.

You have to pull her these two layers, actually, three layers and fold downward, like this.

And press these sides.

So, the model will look like this.

Now, fold here this corner and this one here and fold the tip downward, like this.

So, the model will look like this.

Now, do the same thing here on the other side.

So, I'll show you a little bit faster.

Fold here, both sides.

Now, fold at the same time, squashing the middle.

Open this flap dividing the layers in half.

Now, you're going to reverse this first layer.

Now, fold these layers, like this.

And fold these two layers, opening these sides.

Now, the last details to make the heart shape.

And that's it! Now, you're going to hold the paper like this and pull the layers from inside making it get a box shape.

And that's it! You just made the lid of the box.

So, I hope you liked this video.
