The Pocket Box

The Pack-It Box has become the Pocket Box. It now has a more sophisticated floor and a lid which packs around the box. Photos will be provided shortly.

I taught the box this month to some intrepid students at the annual Origami Festival at the Japanese Gardens in Long Beach. Here is a photo of my youngest successful students: Lachlan Duncan (aged 9) and his brother Kieran (aged 7). Lachlan was so intrigued by the way that the box and its lid packed and unpacked that he demonstrated the technique to all who came by the table. Kieran struggled mightily with this high intermediate model but soldiered on to the end - and succeeded! My contragulations to both these boys.
