Step 1: Folding Process (Part 1)

Pic 1: Need your typical paper. Pic 2: Fold in half hamburger wise along dotted line. Pic 3: Fold in half the other way. Then UNFOLD. This will be your reference line. Pic 4 & 5: Grab top right corner of paper and bring the corner so that the side is flush with the middle of the paper, or the seam. Pic 6 & 7: Grab top left corner of paper and bring the corner so that the side is flush with the middle of the paper, or the seam. Pic 8 & 9: Take the top layer of the two layers and fold it up on top of the two triangles.

Step 2: Folding Process (Part 2)

Pic 10: Flip it over. Pic 11 & 12: Take the right side and fold it along the dotted line till the end is flesh with the middle crease. Pic 12 & 13: Take the left side and fold it along the dotted line till the end is flesh with the middle crease. Pic 14: Fold the bottom up over the two folds you made. Pic 15 & 16: Take the top corner and touch it to the end of the triangle and again UNFOLD. Pic 17: Open it up in the opening up top to make a little pouch. Pic 18 & 19: Poke the middle of the triangle to make the box shape. Pic 20 & 21: Crease the bottom edges to make it stay upright (you can also crease the sides to make a nicer looking box). Pic 22: Done! Any questions just make a comment!
