Tips and suggestions for making and decorating the Candy Coffin Gift Box

  • A good paper size to learn the original model is 6 × 6-inch (15 × 15 cm)
  • To make the variations use letter-size rectangles (US letter size or A4 are suitable)
  • The finished base boxes show both sides of the paper.
  • As a Halloween Box, you can decorate it with an Origami Sugar Skull (Instructions HERE), with Origami Candy Corn (instructions HERE), or a lollipop (instructions coming soon!).
