Origami Boxes: Flower Box

This origami box will be the perfect package for a Mother's Day gift. It's sturdy and big enough to contain sweet treats or origami jewelry.
This is one of my favorite boxes. The top resembles a flower, and it has a very pleasing folding sequence.
Origami Boxes: Flower Box
The instructions can be found in Tomoko Fuse's book, Beautiful Origami Boxes.
I used A6 size (105 mm x 148 mm) rectangles of batik paper, which is a kind of decorated copy paper, 4 for the lid and 4 for the base of the box. A6 size rectangles can be obtained by cutting in half  A5 size papers, which in turn can be obtained by cutting in half A4 size papers. A4 is a common copy paper size in many countries.

Hi Marcela! I love this style :) I have noticed a lot of different boxes that you have done from this book. Could you tell me if the book is easy to follow since it isn't in English? I have been interested in purchasing this book for some time but an worried I won't be able to follow it :( Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you Sonya! The diagrams in the book are very clear (I don't read Japanese either). If you folded from diagrams before, you will have no problems following the ones in this book.
