Last minute favour boxes...

Yesterday while cleaning my craft area i got these little square favour boxes i made for my frd's son's birthday. She asked me a day before the function to make favours for the party. This is a simple and elegant favour box. And the kool part is that you can decorate it in innumberable ways.

my finished box full of candies

While I was still in the middle.

Now comes the tutorial... 

1. Start with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half horizontally and then verically, so the creases look like this.
2. Fold the four corners of the paper toward the center point

3. Fold the top and bottom of this square into the center and open out again to create these creases.
4. Open out the top and bottom triangular flaps.
5. Fold the sides of the model into the centre, creasing well.

6. Fold down top corner of model and then open out again.
7. Fold down model in the other direction
You should now have 2 new diagonal creases like this.

8. Repeat step 6 & 7 at the other end of the model, so you have the new creases at both ends.
9. At one end of the model,Open out model along the creases you just made. This will raise the top portion of the model vertically.

10. Fold top of model over into the box. Its taking shape!
11. Repeat Step 9 and 10 at the other end of the box... and its finished!
To make a lid, just make another box, but start with a slightly bigger piece of paper.
 And it is done.
