Step 1:

Deconstruct box. Take the top and bottom tabs of the box apart. Lay flat.

Step 2:

Cut along the top end.

Step 3:

Cut the bottom end of the box along seam.

Step 4:

Discard one side.

Step 5:

IMPORTANT:
Leave gap between flaps. About 1/4inch. I just used the natural gap of the box.

Duck tape the two flaps, with gap left between.

Step 6:

Duck tape the other side of the box and join the tape together between the gap.

Step 7:

Press the tape together. Should look like this.

Step 8:

One side done.

Step 9:

Repeat steps 5-7 one the other side.

Box construction finished.

GO GRAB A SHIRT!

Step 10:

Face shirt flat face down.

Step 11:

Fold one side over quickly.

Step 12:

More flap back.

Step 13:

Fold over the other side quickly.

Step 14:

Place left hand or the side your sleeves are on and fold it over quickly.

Step 15:

Like so.

Step 16:

And you have a perfectly folded shirt even your mom would be proud of.

It also works with sweatshirts.
