Step 2: Begin Folding
With your square paper(I use 8" square) You may now begin folding!
Carefully bend the paper evenly in half, then run your finger firmly along the edge to press it down. unfold it and repeat in the opposite direction.
Step 3: Fold Corner to Corner
Fold Diagonally in half evenly, open and fold the opposite direction.
Step 4: Double Square!
With your paper lying flat, fold the corners into the center to make a smaller square. It will help if you follow the creases on the paper.
Step 5: Inward Fold
Fold the two opposite edges inward so they meet the line in the middle. Unfold and repeat with the opposite sides.
Step 6: Halfway!
Unfold two of the corners as shown in picture 1. lift the sides up, fold the sides in (see picture 3&4) bring the point down to the center of the box, gently push in the corners.

Turn it so the open side is facing you and repeat the last step to finish a half box!
