箱 : Hako, meaning "box"

It's a good kanji to know. It's also a useful thing to be able to make.

It's even more useful if you can make one from a single sheet of paper, without glue or tape or anything.


The pattern as given, when printed on a standard sheet of letter-size or A4 paper, makes a box roughly 2.5 inches square with a depth of 1 inch. It is the perfect size for two cookies, one atop the other. Like maybe chocolate & macadamia nut cookies. For White Day.

...see how easy it is? This is why I love paper. >w<

Here are some pre-colored versions of the pattern for your cutting-out-and-folding pleasure. Background designs taken from traditional Japanese repeating patterns, as available on Ikiya.

総模様のはこちらです。(いきやから模様)A4 でプリントしたら、出来上がった箱は6.25cm x 6.25cm x 2.5cmぐらいです。クッキを二個がちょう入りそうです。例えば、ホワイトチョコとマカデミアナツクッキ。ホワイトデーのために。>w<


いやだ、orange comes out so badly on this screen... I need to calibrate.
