Comments:These neat little cube-shaped boxes take their name from the wicker boxes traditionally used in Japan for storing kimono and accessories.
Tsuzura are the easiest and quickest to make of the various square boxes presented on this site, although the lid style with Fans is a little more challenging than the basic Tsuzura lid.
The reverse side of the paper shows on one side of each fan-shape, so double-sided paper works best for Fans. However, single-sided paper can also be used effectively, especially when colored with a watercolor marker, as shown by some of the lids here.
Two of the boxes in this set have been decorated with origami butterflies and two have been decorated with maples leaves produced by a punch. These items are attached by insertion under a fold in the basic Tsuzura lid, with a dab of rubber cement to fasten the decoration more securely.
