This little box is ideal as a gift box or for storing those little knick knacks.
2 squares of paper (we used scrapbooking papers)
step one - Take the first piece of paper and find the middle.
step two - Fold in the corners to the middle and crease well.
step three - Without unfolding fold in two opposite sides to the middle and crease well.
step four - Open out and turn paper 90 degrees and fold in the other two opposite sides.
step five - Open out then pull back just 2 of the corners.
step six - Now take hold of the two side that are still folded in and bring so they are vertical.
step seven - Now take one of the opened sections and bring up folding in the two triangles that will form at the sides.
step eight - Now bring down the top corner of the paper tucking it down and in to form the side of the box.
step nine - Repeat this for the other side. To make the base take the other piece of paper, trim two sides by 3mm (1/8") and repeat the process. Your finished box will be 5cm (2") deep and 10cm (4") square.
