This package opens like a blossom.
- Mat board
- Pen or pencil
- Utility knife
- Rubber band
Measure a gift's width and height, then draw a cross shape on mat board (center square slightly larger than width, each flap slightly longer than height). Cut out with a utility knife.
Score flaps on the colored side.
Make box top the same way, but with shorter flaps and a center square 1/8 inch bigger on all sides.
Fold all flaps; place gift inside box, and affix top to bottom with a rubber band.
