Now I can make my gifts AND their packages! Thanks for this great instructable!
It worked! Thanks very much for this quick and easy Instructable!<br><br>I found it useful on step three to &quot;mock&quot; fold the corners into a box, without fully unfolding the corners yet, to get an idea of how it would make the box. Then I fully unfolded one corner at a time to then fold this larger corner over and into the bottom of the box (if this makes any sense).<br>
