This instructable shows you how to make a unique flower bow and a customized origami box perfect for jewelry, candy, money, or any other small gift. This project uses many common items you would have in your home, and I would estimate the total cost of materials used to be around $0.80. The flower bow and origami box do not have to be used together. The flower bow could be an ornament, headband (substitute non-fray fabric for paper), etc. The origami box can be used as storage for small office items or decorated in some other fashion as a gift box. The techniques are quite simple, but you must have a gentle firm hand when working with these materials. Putting together this instructable and developing this technique took me about 4 hours. I would imagine the first time working through these steps would take about 45 minutes, but subsequent boxes would take much less time and could be done assembly line style for an even quicker process for making multiple boxes. You don’t have to use the colors or paper that I did, so you can make yellow sunflowers with green wrapping paper for a spring-themed gift box.
