In fact there wasn’t an elegant way of doing this (in an origami sense). I used trial and error: firstly I made the Yoshimoto Cube (aka Double Star Flexicube), then measured the edge size of the “cube”. The side of the starting sheet for the box has to be 5 times the edge of cube, plus a little bit to make the fit comfortable. I needed a couple of attempts to make it fit well. Hope you have some success! Please show your results.

This is the most direct way I could make the DSF (aka YoshimotoCube no 1) in origami. I strive for simplicity! You may be able to find more direct ways of making one using cut and paste methods… Search for Yoshimoto Cube no 1. Good luck!

Could you provide a tutorial on the rate of proportionality between the two please.
