Step 1: Materials

You will need:

- 1 piece of paper (2 if you want a lid) 8 1/2 by 11
- Scissors
- Pencil

Step 2: Folding

- Fold paper in a shape that forms a triangle with a little rectangle

Step 3: Drawing/Cutting

- Draw a line where the edge of the triangle meets the rectangle

- Cut along that line so now the triangle is separated from the rectangle

Step 4: Folding

Fold the paper into triangles so when you open the paper you will have an "X"

Step 5: More Folding

Fold all corners so that they meet at the enter point.

The last picture is the result you should have after folding this step (I drew lines so you can see. This is not a needed step)

Step 6: Even More Folding

- fold each corner to the line on the other side that we just made

Step 7: Last Folding Task

Fold each corner to the first folded line it reaches.

Step 8: Cutting

Cut the dotted lines in the pictures.

Step 9: Last Couple Steps of Folding

This is the last couple of steps then you are done
