Paper Gift box

I made this box to hold a gift for my S-I-L's birthday. Jen said (jokingly) he wanted a Speedo for their upcoming Cruz. So my DH and I set out to find him one. By the time we got home I knew just how I would package it and got to work making this masculine (cute) gift box and tag with just the right message (Lol). The box when finished is a petite 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" x 2-1/4". Just perfect for a small gift or gift card.

To make this box start with a 11-1/2"x11-1/2" piece of card stock or paper.
Using the Simply Scored and Diagonal Scoring Plate, score all four sides at 2-3/4", 5-3/4" and 8-3/4".
Using a bone folder crease all score lines.
Fold opposite corners on creases so that the corners touch in the center.

Fold sides up vertically.
Tucking in the sides on the end, fold up end of box.
Fold flap over side towards center.
Folding in flap and matching corner with center of box.
Repeat with remaining side and your box base is complete.

For the lid start with a 10"x10" piece of card stock or paper and score at 3", 5" and 7".
Assemble the same way as the box base.

No adhesive required!

I made the tag using scraps of coordinating card stock, cutting small rectangles to match
the pattern on the lid. I sponged Soft Suede ink on the squares and popped them up
with Dimensionals.  

I was a hit at the party! My S-I-L even threatened to wear the Speedo.
