The instructions can be found in the book, Stylish accessory who make the unit origami, by Tomoko Fuse.
There are four boxes in the picture, stacked one on top of the other,  plus a lid on the top.
Each box has a liner with four flaps which are inserted into the sides of another box, except for the flaps of the top one, which are inserted into the lid.
Each box is folded with two 6" (150 mm) squares of scrapbook paper. The lid is folded with one  6" (150 mm) of the same paper.

It's a modular box. I folded the box with six 6" (150 mm) squares of scrapbook paper, three for the lid and three for the base, plus another 6" (150 mm) square of washi paper for the flower that's locked inside the lid.
