Easy Folded Gift Boxes - Cosmo Cricket
UPDATE: If you came here from Pinterest, we later updated our readers with more examples and a video tutorial... it's much easier to follow! You can find it here. Happy crafting and thanks for dropping by! Eric often tells me I remind him of Maria from the Sound of Music. Maybe it's my short-strawberry blonde hair. Maybe it's my love for vintage dresses and skirts. So, it's a little ironic that I lead the children's choir at my church. Once a year we combine the two choirs for the Sunday services as the main event. It just doesn't seem like enough, but I made several thank-you's yesterday for my friends that helped my little ones sing so well, I swear I could hear them all the way in Minnesota. Here' the first one I made. To make the box, take a full sheet of paper and mark it at 6" on two opposing sides. Then fold edges in to match up with the marks. Now measure and mark at 5" and 7" on the folded edges. Fold as shown below. Update: Christiee asked me to try to explain this.
