Forum Thread: Small Box with Lid from Large Piece of Paper

hi there,

im a university student and at the moment we are making books. my book is made out of one sheet of A0 size paper cut in a square spiral fashion and folded in a concertina way to create a book the size of A6.

what im wanting to do it use another copy of the A0 sheet and make a box for the book without cutting or gluing at all so that the box can be opened up to reveal the layout of the book it encases.

i cant quite work out how to do it so i badly need some help.

if it makes it easier i can ratio it down for you. its like having an A4 piece of paper and folding it in half 5 times. the A4 represents the A0 and it folded five times represents the A6 book. and the book is about 4-5cm thick.

id like to have a box with an attached lid made entirely out of this one sheet of paper. it can be a sideways sleeve or a just a normal box with a lid. or just some sort of opening closing feature. anything really.

thanks for any input you can give.
