If you stock up with everything you need to make a box, then we can safely proceed to the creative process - turning the paper into a box "in five minutes."
Initially, cut a square out of brown paper. We set the sizes depending on the required box sizes. In our situation, the size of the lid is 19 * 19 cm. The final size of the box "in five minutes" is 6 * 6cm.
After the square is cut out, gently bend the corners to the center as shown in the photo below.
In the process, we bend all the corners of the square to the center, repeating one by one actions, as in the photo below.
After bending, make two cuts as in the photo. Please note that the cuts are not made until the very middle. Be careful.
Our lid from the box is ready, now we will put everything in stages, we follow the process in the photo:
So, the lid from the box is ready, now we proceed to the manufacture of the bottom - the bottom of the box, we took plain white paper for the bottom. We also do everything, in stages, only with dimensions we set smaller by 3-5 mm, in this case it is 18.6 * 18.6 mm.
Useful advice from the author: the production of the box is planned without glue, but in the case of the box in the photo, the corners and edges were fastened with glue for better strength. With self-made boxes, you yourself will understand whether to glue the corners or not. The main thing is not to be afraid to try and experiment, the creative process is endless and beautiful, enjoy.
You can decorate the resulting box with a ribbon or braid, tying a bow or knot.
