For making a box from 12″ x 12″ paper, center and draw a 4-1/4″ square on wrong side of paper (diagram 1). Referring to this diagram, label corners A, B, C and D and center square E as shown. Fold each corner in to meet at center of E (diagram 2). Fold top and bottom edges in to meet at center (diagram 3). Fold side edges in to meet at center. Unfold paper. Referring to diagram 1, cut along broken lines only. Do not cut into center square E. Label flaps f, g, h and i as shown. Refold corners A and C to center. fold each edge up, forming 2 sides of box and overlapping flaps f and g (diagram 4). Use a swipe of Aleene’s Glue Stick to hold flaps together. Fold in flaps h and i and use a swipe of glue to secure (diagram 5). Refold corners B and D to center to complete box top (diagram 6). Use a smudge of glue to hold. For box bottom, trim 1/8″ from each edge of paper square and repeat steps. Decorate box as desired using Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue for your heavier embellishments. Enjoy!

I have used this many times and they are beautiful! And they are useful for so many things, from a little girls hair things to larger craft beads. I also use them to hold precut teabag folding tiles, the finished teabag medallions, scrapbook medallions, stickers, etc. They are a colorful way of organizing any crafting area!
