Comments:Double-sided paper works best for these cute little bird-shaped boxes, since so much of the reverse side of the paper is revealed.
Simon Andersen designed this model to be a mostly flat hanging ornament, as you will see in the You Tube video referenced above. After making some of those hanging birds, I started fooling around with one of them and accidentally discovered something nice.
By opening up the bird's body a bit and then flattening out the sink fold hidden inside there, I was able to create a small, three-dimensional box. What fun!
I started making lots of birds with plumage of all different colors. This flock arrived just in time for Easter and it has really brightened up my home.
Filled with small candies, these little bird boxes are perfect as party favors. If you need a pretty box for a bigger gift, you could just make one of these birds from a much larger sheet of paper.
