The Fold up Gift Card, Penknife, Reece's Pieces Gift Box

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
