Fold a Paper Box Contest TODAY ONLY 3/24/13


THE CONTEST IS:

How to make a gift box! You do the same for the top of the box as you did for the bottom of the box. I need to find one more item to go with this. This is a contest for a $5.00 giftcard to your choice of Target, Walmart, Amazon.com, or Starbucks! You can decide with me in email after I pick the winner! GAME #1 FOR TODAY! You have until 8pm PT 3/24/13   11 pm ET to complete the whole thing (top and bottom) and I made these recently and posted mine at the top of the page.



Tips

  • For best results, fold neatly. For each fold, carefully align the edge or corner with whatever edge, crease, or other feature it should meet, then crease the paper firmly.
  • You might want to dab some glue on the bottom of the triangular flaps in order to make them stay down, or you can use tape.
  • If your paper is colored on one side, fold it so that the colored side faces down at first.
  • To make a lid for your box, create a square of paper half a centimeter larger than the first box, and repeat all steps.
    • An alternate method for making a lid is to repeat the steps with the same size paper, but on steps 12 and 13, don't fold the edges all the way to the center. Instead, leave about 1/8 of an inch between the edge and the center on both sides.
  • You can use poster board to create a bigger box. You can use sticky notes to make a very small box. But beware it is very difficult.

Warnings

  • Don't put anything too heavy in the box, or it will collapse. Remember, it is paper.
  • Watch out for paper cuts.
