How To: Make a paper gift box

Make a paper gift box

To make a paper gift box is one of the simplest projects that you can create on your own. In order to do this you need some materials: a Square of Paper, a Pencil, a Ruler & a Folding Bone. Take any size square of paper and draw two lines diagonally from corner to corner. This will form a large X, marking the center of the square. In turn, fold each corner into the center of the square. Firmly crease the fold. Fold the first corner to the line of the first fold made on the opposite side. Repeat for each corner and fold each corner to meet the nearest fold line. Make four cuts at the corners. It makes no difference which corners are used as long as they are opposite each other. Fold the two corners without cuts into the center and fold the edges up. This forms two of the sides of the box. Now fold the cut ends in at either end of the box. Fold the two remaining pieces into the middle of the box. This will securely hold the box together. Make a base in exactly the same way. However, cut the square a fraction smaller so the base will fit into the top. You can finish the box with stamping or embossing. Try adding stamped embellishments, or stamp some ribbon and tie into rosettes to top the boxes. If you follow the steps in this video, you will be able to create a paper gift box on your own.
