What you’ll need:

  • Paper of any colour

Let’s get started!

Taking your ruler, pencil and paper draw out a square measuring 14cm x 14cm and cut this out.

To begin with, fold your square into quarters and then unfold it and lay the square flat.

Take each of the corners of the square and fold them in to meet the centre. You should now have a slightly smaller square.

Now fold the two opposites sides directly in half also meeting the centre making a rectangle.

Fold the top and bottom of the rectangle into the centre and it should now look like a small square.

Unfold everything and lay the paper flat again, you should be able to see all of your fold lines.

Bring two of the opposite corners into the centre and fold along the edges. Making it into this shape:

Using the fold lines that you have already made, pinch the top corners up so they are now standing up against the table and bring them together in the middle.

Fold the top small triangle down and over. This will now form one of the sides of the box.

Repeat this for the last side as well and you should have something that looks like this:

You can also, glue the triangles down inside the box, just to secure it more and add stability.
