Origami Box

Start by taking a square piece of paper.

This is a 12x12 inch piece of scrapbook paper (good weight of paper to use).

Step 1: Find the center of paper and fold all corners into the center.

You can cheat by folding the paper in half both ways and making a little crease to find the center.

Step 2: Fold two sides of paper into the center.

Step 3: Repeat in other direction

Step 4: Unfold recent folds and pull out two opposite corners.

Refold the sides in, it will make it easier for the next fold. 

Step 5: Fold corner (arrow #1) to center (arrow #2).

Repeat with other corner on the same side.

Step 6: Fold down flap to create box side. 

Step 7: Repeat with other side.

Step 8: Fill with goodies and share!
