So to start......you need a square piece of paper. Any size will make a box, I have used a 6" x 6".
with a ruler, draw 2 lines corner to corner - fold all 4 corners into the centre
unfold - then refold again as shown taking the corner to the crease line of the first fold
now another 4 folds as shown taking the corners back on themselves - you could do this before you make the cuts.
you could use a paper clip
Your box! HOPE YOU'RE STILL WITH ME? You now have the lid of the box.
To complete the base - your square of paper needs to be trimmed by 3/8" inch on two sides only to make it slightly smaller, then folded in exactly the same way.
The first one is always the difficult one!
The secret is to make sure your creases are crisp mand fold accurate.
Hope you'll have a go and if the instructions are confusing....SHOUT!
