A versatile box from 6x6 paper.
One of these holds a penknife for Charlie, another a gift card (the smaller sized ones 3 3/4 x 2 1/4) and I've put all kinds of things inside: jewelry, candy, thumb drives... very useful box.
On your 6x6 paper, score on the top at 1" on each side and 2.5" and 3.5" on the other side, fold into a bag).
Fold the red line into a valley fold so the edge with the C’s is sticking up. I put my fingernail at point A and bring point C (which is sticking up) to point B which is flat on my table. Because the edge of the paper with the point C is folded up, the diagonal fold line is created at 90 degrees Tip… the square that has the top edge C-C --- that square does NOT get creased.
Clip closed with a ribbon or clothes pin, clip, paperclip – decorate with a stamp or a die cut or a faux bow. I've put the ribbon vertically and horizontally, my favorite is to use about 10" of wider 5/8" ribbon and secure with a twine box. That way you can slide off the ribbon to get into the box. I also like to use a clothespin covered with a Christmas tree or other decoration.
Happy Crafting, MaryKate
