• Card Stock (110 lb. white or color works best)
• Cutting Surface (i.e. IKEA thin plastic cutting board)
• X-Acto Knife
• Letter Opener / Boning Tool
• Colored Pencils / Pens
• Rubber Cement - Glue
Step 1: Print out the Mini-Box Pattern
I tried printing the mini-box patter on a couple of different types of paper but I found that 110 lb. card stock works best. I used 110 lb., 8 1/2" x 11" White Card Stock paper from Staples. I colored the box by hand (which was why I used white card stock) but if you want a solid colored box, you could just print the pattern on a solid colored card stock.
Step 3: Fold the Mini-Box along the Dotted Lines
Step 4: (Optional) Decorate the Mini-Box
Step 5: Fold the Mini-Box
Once the RED and PURPLE bottoms are in place, wrap the 'secure bottom piece' around and tuck it into the bottom (the WHITE piece under the RED flap).
