Monument Valley Corrugation (front) inside Predictable Box

This is my Monument Valley Corrugation (front side), squeezed inside Predictable Box which I designed for this very purpose.

 

The problem with designs such as Plain Box is that the thickness of the walls uses up space inside of the box. This makes the external dimensions easily controllable but the inside dimensions not so. Such boxes make nice lower parts of two-piece boxes since it is easy to match them to the lids’ sizes, but they make bad containers whose internal dimensions need to precisely match some predetermined size. With Predictable Box, it is the other way around: internal dimensions come out predictable at the cost of external dimensions, which is a desired property when folding a box supposed to contain a corrugation.

 

Both the box and the corrugation are each folded from a single square of Tant paper of the same size. The box is needed since without it the paper’s springiness would cause the corrugation to unfold and curl.
