I got an origami book a few years ago and have always been obsessed with the idea of making your own dishes from paper. If you don’t have containers to match your party decor, you can easily make your own with origami paper (which comes in the best colors and patterns!) Below, we’re sharing 2 simple box DIYs that come together really quickly. You can fill them with treats and set them around the party for people to snack on while they chat. If you need some party snack ideas, we love Graze: a snack subscription service that delivers awesome treats straight to your door.
It’s hard to find snacks that are healthy and great-tasting. We really like Graze because their snacks are both. Before your first box arrives, you can choose the ingredients you like (or don’t like!) so that you’ll definitely enjoy every snack you get. You also don’t have to worry about high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial flavors and colors, or genetically engineered ingredients. We love that they come already packaged in perfect portions, so you can throw them in your bag for snacking while you’re out and about.
Right now, you can try a 4-snack sampler box of graze for FREE by clicking here! And make sure you get the DIY for our snack boxes below!
Materials: Origami Paper, Ruler, Pencil
Step 1: Mark the middle of your square origami paper.
Step 2: Fold the bottom half of the paper up until it hits the middle. Fold the top of the paper down until it meets the other side in the middle.
Step 3: Fold the bottom in half again. Repeat with the top.
Step 4: Use a ruler to mark the middle of the paper.
Step 5: Fold both sides in horizontally until they meet in the middle (where you marked.)
Step 6: Unfold. Use the creased lines as a guide to fold the horizontal half diagonally. Crease and unfold. Repeat on the other side and unfold so that on both sides there is a creased “x”.
Step 7: Slip your fingers between the slits in the middle of the paper. With 2 fingers, hold the sides open while you fold over side flaps. Repeat on the opposite side.
Step 1: Mark the center of your square origami paper.
Step 2: Fold in each corner so that it reaches the mark you made in the center.
Step 3: Once all the corners are folded in, fold in one side until it hits the middle. Crease and unfold. Repeat with the 3 other sides.
Step 4: Unfold 2 of the corners.
Step 5: On the corners that are still folded in, fold the corners again so that the sides reach the middle. Crease.
Step 6: On the sides with the open corners, pinch the folds together, and fold over the corner flap so that it creates the wall of the box. Repeat on the opposite side.
Step 7: Use your fingers to crease the sides of the box so they all stay in place.
