Today I’ll show you how to make an original gift box. The box will be about 10 cm in size, and you’ll need a square of paper 30×30 cm. Fold the paper in half. Open, then fold in half again, but don’t crease it, just leave a slight mark in the centre, so you could see it. Now fold in the right side to the centre line. And the other side, too. Unfold the paper. Now fold the right side to this crease. And the left side to this crease. We have five creases in the middle. Fold in the upper right corner to the second crease (from the right). Then fold in the lower right corner to the same crease. Now the triangle goes up. Accordingly, fold in the lower left corner to the fourth crease. And this corner, to the same crease. The last triangle. Flip over the paper. Rotate the figure by 90 degrees, so that the creases are vertical. Now fold this side to the mark we have left in the centre line. Fold the lower part and crease. Crease the paper thoroughly to make the box even. Fold the upper part to the centre mark, too. You don’t need to mark it with a pencil, as it will be well seen anyway. Now look, these triangles have horizontal creases. We should unfold the triangles in these creases. Take the triangles, open the pockets and press it down. Now crease it. The same with the upper part. Here is the same – unfold the triangles in these creases, open this flap and fold it up. Now we have two flaps. Flip over the paper. Here are these pockets, now turn them out. And now fold this crease to this line. Take this crease with your fingers and fold it to this line. Look from the other side. Here it is. Crease it thoroughly once again. The same thing with the upper part. Press it up with your fingers and fold it to this line. Flip over the paper and crease it. Flip back. Now look, we should crease these triangles diagonally, so that they could move more freely. The same with the upper triangles. Crease them with your fingers both ways. Rotate the paper. Now we’re going to make a small inner box. Hold one pocket by the triangle, straighten here with your fingers and lift the box in the crease. Here is the crease, and the same for the other part. One part of the box has lifted, and here is the flap. The same for the other side. Hold the pocket by the triangle, and meanwhile lift the box. And here. Press the corners so that the box has a square shape. Like this. Now we can fold in this flap, and the other flap. But if I release them, the box will open, so we should fix them. Each flap has pockets, from both sides. What we’re going to do is insert the pockets of the first flap into the pockets of the other flap, inside. Done. Even them out. Now the box is fixed. Look one more time how the flaps insert into each other. Our box is ready. Now you can put the gift in the box and adorn it with a ribbon.
