Today, I present a set of octagonal boxes, designed by Tomoko Fuse. Rather than providing a design with exact specifications, Tomoko Fuse tends to present several possible variations. This design has cosmetic variations, which create different patterns of color; and structural variations, allowing you to create wide and short boxes, or narrow and tall boxes. These boxes don’t have covers, but the idea is that you could make two boxes of slightly different width, and use the wider one as a cover for the narrower one. I created a set of four of slightly different dimensions, so they could be nested (image below the fold).
The paper I used, I believe is scrapbooking paper, not intended for origami use. Perfect for this design, because of its thicker stock and striking patterns.
