Paper Box Tutorial
This is a video of Mary, from Etsy admin. teaching how to make a great box!
I learned to make these boxes and now send all my items to my customers in lovely boxes. You can get great deals on scrapbook paper if you watch for coupons and sales.
Tip No. 1: Don't use Tag Paper. They are pretty, but they are so thick the creases crack.
Tip No. 2: Skip step one (fold corner to corner to find center) Use a ruler and pencil to draw lines corner to corner on the inside to find the center. This will give you a lovely flat top with no creases.
Good luck and have fun. Customer's love these!
