How to Make Paper Boxes

Be prepared to make magic happen as I teach you how to make paper boxes. Ok it's not exactly magic, but it's pretty darn cool how you can take a piece of paper and with a few calculated folds, turn it into a box that you can actually use. Imagine that! All you had was a flat piece of paper, then Abracadabra! You have a box!

Learning how to make paper boxes is not difficult at all. Simply follow the instructions and pictures and you'll be able to make some. After the box, I'll show you how to make the lid also.
