Simple Box

Here is how to make a simple box suitable for a party favour or mini gift box.

Start with a piece of paper 7 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 3 inches on all four sides. Cut slits on the score line to the intersecting score line as shown above.
To make this box actually work you have to cut off most of the big squares. this will create little tabs you can put the glue on.
You want to put the glue on the outside part of the flaps.

Fold the little flaps in not out so you get a nice finished look on the outside. To finish the box I punched a hole on each side and threaded the ribbon through, tying a knot on the other side. To make it fit any occasion stamp a sentiment or image on another piece of paper and glue that to the front.
