Origami Cat Box by Gay Merrill Gross


Do you like origami cats?

What about origami boxes? Gay Merrill Gross has combined 2 traditional origami figures –a cat’s head and a Sanbo box, and designed this delightful origami cat-box!

This two-piece origami cat-box is the perfect model to fill with candy or other small items to give away as a present on a festive occasion. Head and body lock together securely so there is no need for glue or fasteners.

The following step-by-step video shows how to make Gay’s cat. Thank you Gay for granting permission to present your model.

Suggestions and Tips and for folding the origami box cat

  • Two squares of paper are needed, one for the body and one for the head.
  • Use thin paper such as ‘Kami’.
  • The body shows only one side of the paper. It isn’t necessary to use paper with a different color on each side.
  • The side of the square used for the head should be half of the side of the square used for the body.
  • A 3 x 3-inch (7.5 x.7.5cm) piece of paper is the corresponding size for the head.
  • A 6 x 6-inch (15 × 15cm) piece of paper or bigger is perfect for the body.
  • The head does show both sides of the paper. For a great effect use paper with different color on each side.
