Yamaguchi’s “Masu Box” (WOD 2016: #2)


This attractive variation on the traditional origami version of the Japanese “masu” box by Makoto Yamaguchi appeared in Origami Tanteidan Magazine issue 159 (Sept. 2016.)

Always a sucker for boxes, I couldn’t resist trying this one. The top and bottom are a traditional box design; what’s fun here is the carefully designed insert which makes the box larger, and creates the opportunity to have a contrasting paper show. Very nice!
