You need 2 sheets of paper and a bone folder. One sheet has to be 1/2" bigger than the other. Mine are 12x12 and 11.5x11.5".
Fold your paper in half, unfold and fold in half again in the opposite direction.
1
Now fold in half again but diagonally.
2
Bring each corner to the center. Each fold creates a triangle, then you'll have a square. Make sure to crease each fold.
3
Fold 2 sides to the center. Unfold and fold the remaining 2 sides.
4
Open 2 sides, then fold the other sides to the center of the paper.
5
Bring the corners together, fold the top down and crease.
6
Follow the same steps over again to make the lid. Be sure to crease each fold.
7
This is optional, use a little tape or glue to glue down the flaps.
8
This is also optional, but your box will look prettier if you cut some ribbon and tie a bow at the top.
9
And you are done! This box is 4.5x4.5x2"
