About: Hello! my name is Melker and i live in sweden and are 14 years old and like to take photos and origami.

A perfect gift box for something small.

Step 1:

Draw a circle around the CD. Draw a cross in the circle.

Step 2:

Draw another circle as the picture and draw a cross in it.

Step 3:

Draw like the picture and push the pen down hard because we are going to fold there later.

Step 4:

Cut the circles out in one piece.

Step 5:

Fold like the pictures.

Step 6:

Put the box together.

Step 7:

Tie a bow around the box or as I have done on the picture and then you are done.

I am having trouble figuring out how you folded the box between Step 5 and Step 6. Could you provide a little more explanation, please?

I love it, I need a few boxes like these and I plan to make them tonight rather than go buy some - thank you!

I just voted for it, but I have a question. I assume these can be made any size, and the larger the size the thicker the cardboard needs to be. I plan to make my circles in Sketch-up, so I can scale them, and to print them on 110 lb card stock and then go over the seams/folds.

1) How large do you think I can make them? Did you try larger sizes or is it just not practical with "printable card stock"?

2) Any suggestions on how I can make long/rectangular boxes? Do I use overlapping ovals? Or, again, is that a bust?

In other words, do I shop for boxes or stay home and play?

Thanks! Great 'able either way.

You might be able to use and old vinyl album and poster board, to get a larger box. I think as long as the stock large enough to hold 2 perfectly round circles and the board is bendable, you can vary to accommodate different sizes.

Great, and I can print the large circles on any paper or on multiple pages (posterize) and then spray mount them to the cardboard to get the cut and crease lines - duh!

I'll experiment with the oblongs, also. I'd rather stay up all night making my own, unique boxes than hit even one more store than I have to this week. Heck, if the boxes turn out well enough I can avoid shopping for some gifts altogether! (I am kidding)

Thanks!
