Here below is the picture instruction for how to make box base:

 

This design works best with thin card, about the same thickness as a greeting card. In fact, you can even make your own gift boxes out of last year's Christmas cards.

Sizing: If you make your box from a 12 inch square, it will turn out the same size as a tie box, about 4 by 4 by 2 inches.

Make the base from a square piece of paper, with side lengths 1/3 of an inch (1cm) smaller than the piece you use for the lid. But if you use really thick card, then use a square with side lengths 2/3 of an inch (2cm) shorter than the lid-piece.

Step 1: Start with a square piece of paper, nice side facing down. Make a small crease in the centre of each side. I like to mark each crease lightly with a pencil too.

Step 2: Fold all four corners to the centre, using the creases from the previous step as guides.

Here the picture instruction for the box lid!!

 

Remember to use a larger piece of paper for the lid. About 1/3 of a inch larger if you're using thin card, or 2/3 of an inch larger if you're using thick card.

Card-stock to Make Your Own Gift Box

I found that 12x12 inch scrapbooking paper is the perfect size for making these boxes.
