Origami Box: A how to

A quick and easy way to make a one of a kind gift for that special someone. Using the stamps you created in the last tutorial, make a pattern on a square piece of paper. Then fold the corners of each square to the center, so the patterned side is facing outward.

Next fold the outer edge to the center, crease and open. Do the same for the lid. At the corner of the bottom of the lid fold a diagonal crease that bisects the small square created by the previous folds.

Unfold the 2 opposite sides. Refold the remaining 2 sides of the square along the crease so they stand upright and form 2 walls of the box. Fold up the third side, tucking the diagonal corner folds inward against it; wrap the third side over the folds: lay it in place. Repeat for the fourth side. Glue the points together at the center.
