Question 6 months ago

I always do all the steps correctly and I love how it is done....I forgot how to make a box so, in google I searched for a origami box and the first thing popped up was your one. This is a different but easier way to make a box than the original way I used... I have made 6 boxs and all are absolutely beautiful....The pictures are also so clear. Thank you so so much...The last step was made a lot easier! Thanks a lot! You did a wonderful job! 👏👍
