some cardstock (scrapbook 30,5x30,5cm) I used 3 different colours.
bonefolder (or similar)
(The card on the left is not in the tutorial. I made it with the scraps from the box)
cm = centimeters
Here's how it looks when I have folded the piece. So the folds are (on a 13cm wide piece of cardstock): 1cm, 13cm, 2cm, 13cm, 1cm. Glue down the outer flaps (the protection from papercuts). Now the piece is 13-2-13cm.
Decorate the front and back now with patterned paper (trust me, it's easier to do this now especially if you want to add eyelets. Guess how I know?) If you add eyelets and will use this box for CDs or DVDs, make sure to protect the inside of the box so the DVDs don't get scratches.
Next I folded the piece lengthwise. I folded it first in the middle (on 3cm) then every cm, so I get 5 folds. The two outer ones will have glue on them. I don't think it matters which way you have the folds, but I made it so there are two folds on the inside of the box and one on the outside.
TIP: Before you cut your paper check which way it folds best. Bend a little on the paper first horisontally and then vertically. One of them should be easier to bend - then you know how to cut the paper and which way it will be easier to fold. Fold the way it bends best.
I also made an extra fold on the 2cm wide part so it wouldn't break if there were fewer DVDs in the box at a later time.
Finally add decorations, like I did with the flower and metal charm. Hold the flap down with the ribbon and volia - you're done!
If you found this tutorial useful - let me know. I'd love to see your creations :)
