It's certainly not Fort Knox, but it can be a fun way to make a container for something like a gift card or, as I'm using it, a way to hide a clue as part of a larger game.
As a bonus, since it's so simple, it's easy to make. Let's get started!
- a piece of tape for reinforcement
- a length of string or cord
- an exacto or utility knife
- double-sided tape
- optional: reinforcement labels for the hole
Step 1: Folding the Paper Box, Creasing the Guidelines
First, we need to fold the paper in half diagonally both ways. By this, I mean fold one corner of the paper to the corner directly across from it. If you have a color you'd prefer to be out the outside, make sure you start with that side facing down. Unfold and then repeat with the other corner. When you unfold it the second time, you should have 4 equal triangles created on your paper by the creases.
接下来，我们需要将纸张折叠成折叠成分为边缘 - 也就是说，取得一侧的边缘并折叠它甚至到侧面折叠。再次，我们将以这种方式执行这种方式，展开它，然后对另一对平行侧面做到。现在，当你展开它时，你的折痕应该制作8个平等的三角形。
首先,折叠两个降落e corners to the center, then, for the last time, unfold.
Take those same corners, and fold them up to the crease line made by the fold in the last step. Then, fold along that crease towards the center.You should have a pair of of trapezoid shaped flaps.
Next, fold those sides to the center line. Your paper should now look like the final picture of these directions. Now it's time for the tricky fold...
If you aren't familiar with origami folds, this may take you a couple tries, and that's ok! I would very much recommend looking closely at the photos instead of just going by my written explanation - it's a bit hard to explain textually.
找到中心线across你的折叠 - 也就是说，从左到右的中心线。开始折叠顶部，向下向下朝向该中心线。将你的手指塞进左翼瓣，并且在已经皱折的折叠后，将折叠折叠到中心线，创建三角形，如图所示。重复另一侧，然后折叠整个一侧平。
You'll have a flap with the point facing you, with 4 sides. Two triangles worth of paper will be sticking over the edges - fold those in towards the center line going up and down. Now, fold the pointy flap back towards the side it originated, making the fold along the top of the rectangle above it, made by the folds you just completed.
Gently tug the flaps outwards to pop up your origami box. Chose one side,and fold the point down so it looks like an envelope. I also went it and used double-sided tape on the bottom, folded portions of the sides to keep them from popping up and deforming the box while manipulating the puzzle.
Now that our box is folded, it's time to prep the puzzle.
Step 4: Prepping the Puzzle
Punch a hole on flat flap, using the center crease as a guide.
采取一块拍，磁带沿着尖瓣的中心线。这是在那里加强槽/条，我们将在片刻切割。我建议使用画家或遮蔽胶带，因为它们比透明胶带更厚，这将提供更多的加固。你也可以使用电气磁带，但你需要额外肯定你的刀片是锋利的，因为我们将通过它剪切，如果你的刀子有点沉闷，那么如果易于障碍物。你也可以使用盥洗胶带如果你对加强效力不太感兴趣，只是想把它带给你一点挑剔 - 取决于你！如果您愿意，您还可以使用为此目的制造的加固贴纸来加固孔冲孔。对于这个例子，我没有这样做，但是在材料上的物料上有一张这样的项目。
Now we're going to need to measure the diameter of our punched hole. Mine is about 6 mm. We will need to make the strip we are about to cut just a touch smaller than the hole - I'll do 5 mm. Again using that center fold line, which should run down the center, more or less, of your tape, mark your cut lines. I put the 3mm mark on my line and marked at 0 and 5. You'll want to do this twice to mark the start and stop of both your lines - in my case, about 4 cm apart.
Now, just use your ruler and your guidelines to cut two slits in your pointy flap. Don't go all the way to the edge of the paper!
Now it's time to lock it! If you have something you want to put inside, now's the time to do it. First, we're going to need a length of string or cord. I would suggest not going with something TOO thin, as it can bite into the paper and cause tearing. I am using a bit of soft cord ribbon. You'll need to cut a length long enough that it can be threaded through the hole, through the slit, back through the slit, with beads tied on each end. You will almost certainly need a longer piece than you think due to the knots. You'll need 2 beads, and they'll each need to be bigger that the hole you've punched, but only just. If they are too big, the solution will be more difficult, if not impossible.
To assemble: Tie a bead to one end of your cord. Take the cord and string it through your punched hole. Loop it back through the slit on the same side as your bead, then back towards you through the other slit, and then finally back through your punched hole. Tie the other bead to the other end, adjusting so that the length of cord has enough give to be manipulated without allowing the box to fully open. Clip off any excess, and you're done.
你会在我的例子中看到我在这里捆绑了一个珠子，以便它可以自由滑动，并且一个被牢牢地绑在一起。我只是在尝试 - 我建议绑架，所以两者都可以自由滑动。这是你的解决方案的红鲱鱼 - 你不要通过摆弄珠子来解决它，但这就是大多数人开始的地方。
