Boxes! Who doesn't love them? Especially the kind that can fit in your pocket! These are 5 cm x 5 cm x 2.5 cm and can hold candy, lip balm, paperclips, hairclips, engagement rings (haha) and whatever else you feel like boxin' up.

Materials:
12x12 scrapbook paper (makes 4 boxes, or 8x12 for 2 boxes)
X-acto knife
Scotch tape

I used this template, traced from a tiny bakery cake box:


Trace out all your templates on the sheet first, or edges will go off the page!

Cut the template out. Gently use the knife to go over all the lines - deep enough so you can feel it, but not enough so you can see the relief on the other side of the page. Using mountain folds, fold all the lines. The diagonal lines are valley folds. Tape the inverted triangles inside the box to the 'walls'. Place your items inside the box. Fold two parallel semicircles over the other two and tape the box shut.





In bulk!






Another great idea with these is to use them as invitations to a party. Write the recipient's name on the top square and the event details on the inside, with some sort of signature token contained in the box.

These are so cute! Btw, did you make up the template or got it off a website?

Very cute! Do you have a scan of the template by any chance? I'd love to make one for wrapping a graduation present but I don't know what scale to use for the picture you provided or anything.

They didn't know they couldn't make a scene.

She had to run, run, run run, run.

I'm sorry, time_warp, I don't have a working scanner! The size of the folded box is listed in the post, I'm not sure if that helps. I looked round the Internet for you but couldn't find the right template or even a similar one.

Oh that's alright, I didn't realize you included the size of the box in your first post. I can probably figure out a scale.
