How to Make a Paper Box
Let's face it, it's Friday, you're bored and you'd love something to keep you occupied for a little bit as the seconds tick closer and closer to the weekend. Well I've got just the project for you, and you wont even have to leave your desk.
Here's what you'll need.
That's it. It can be a post-it note or regular computer paper, it doesn't matter, so let's get to it.
Step 1: Make your paper into a square.
Fold your paper across and then proceed to cut off the excess. Unless of course you're using a sticky-note in which case you already have a square.
Step 2: Fold your paper from point to point, and then again from the other points.
Step 3: Fold each of your four points to the center.
It should look like this ^^
Step 4: Fold each point to the first crease.
It should look like this now.
Step 5: Fold each point to the first crease, like so..
Flip it over, it should look like this now.
Step 6: Okay, now you'll want to cut on the crease towards the four center squares (I outlined them for you, DO NOT cut on the outline). You'll be making FOUR cuts on TWO opposite sides.
You can flip the paper back over now, take a look at the four cuts.
Step 7: Fold in to make the sides. Do this to both ends.
Step 8: Fold in the two remaining flaps to create the other sides. All points should meet in the bottom.
There ya have it folks, a nice paper box for your desk. You can do this with any size paper you'd like. We challenge you to make a paper box with materials at your desk, tweet the final results at us or post them on our Facebook!
