Step 2: Step 1 - The Box
Take the double weighted card stock and measure every four inches along the top, and mark it. You should have two marks. Then repeat until all sides of the paper marked and measured.
Step 3: Step Two
Now fold paper by matching the right side to the first mark you made on the left and then repeat with the left side. Use an old gift card or bonefolder to help get a flat crease.
Then open the paper and rotate it and fold again, in the same method.
Open up the paper again, you should have created a grid that's has 9 squares, each measuring 4x4.

The center square is the base of the box.
Step 5: Step Four
