DIY paper box

I've had a few requests for a tutorial on how to make paper boxes. So, at last, here it is:

You don't have to glue it, but it stays together a bit better if you do.

Make them out of whatever paper is handy. I'm going to attempt to make one out of newspaper for a Christmas present I'm wrapping (some homemade fudge, if you were wondering. That'll need a whole post of its own, of course). I'll let you know how it goes.

[If you're wondering why you only ever see one hand, it's because I was holding the camera remote with the other hand. If I only had one hand, I'd make much more of a big deal out of it. Making the things I make using only one hand would be far more impressive. Anyway, enough of that.]


  1. These are fabulous. Thanks for the easy tutorial. I made several of these for a baby shower and just loved them. I posted about them on my blog today and linked back to you.

  2. thank you sssso much! i was struggling looking for something just like this.

  3. OMG, I will try to make this box for my soap favours.

  4. Thank you so much for the tutorial! I've tried making oragami boxes but they were too complicated and these are awesome! I am going to make LOADS now. thank you!

  5. Thank you!!! I looked on so many sites to find something easy. It was so hard to find someone that broke down the steps. I just tried it and it was so easy. These are perfect for me to put my homemade buckeye candy's in!!!
