Introduction: How to Make a Jewelry Box Fit Through Canada Post's Slot of Doom

But no more!
With this little trick, you can size down your boxes to pass through that evil slot!
However, this will only work if you want the thinnest possible box.

Step 1: Step 1: Open Up Your Box

Step 5: Step 5: Fold Over Edges
This step will not work if you don't plan on making the boxes as thin as can be.
Step 6: Step 6: Cut the Edges!
You may opt to use a pair of scissors instead, as it would leave a much cleaner cut.

A tiny bit messy, (unless cut with scissors) but definitely does the trick!
