The Origami Modular Cube is made with 6 identical pieces joined together. You could hide something inside and use it as a gift box. I made two small boxes and turned them into earrings. Use all the same color paper, or various colors, just have fun! You will find the written and pictorial pattern for the Origami Modular Cube below. There is also a video tutorial at the end of this post.

Origami has been one of my hobbies since I was 8 years old. My grandmother introduced me to origami and it remains something that keeps her close to my heart. I’m pleased to be able to share this ancient art form with you! You can find more Origami Pattern Tutorials here: https://www.jessieathome.com/origami-patterns/

In the finished creation, only one side each piece of paper will be visible.
The finished cube will be a bit bigger then 1/3 the size of the starting pieces of paper. I stared with 6″ pieces of paper and ended with a cube that’s a bit bigger then 2″.
Be sure to crease well after each fold.

Step 1: Start by laying paper down with the front side facing down. Fold the paper in half then unfold.
