Box With Lid
This small box with a fitted lid will make even a tiny gift seem impressive.

   
Step 1:
Fold on a diagonal from one corner so the short edge is aligned with the longer side.
Unfold and repeat going the other direction.
   
Step 2:
Unfold and lay flat, then make a fold across at the points where the diagonal creases end. This should make a square.

Step 3:
Fold the corners of the square in to meet at the middle, forming a smaller square..

   
 
Step 4:
Fold the square into thirds, creasing well. Unfold and repeat going across the other way, so when you unfold it, the creases look like a tic-tac-toe grid (3 by 3).




   
Step 5:
Flatten out and fold each of the corners in around the center square, to make an octagonal shape.




   
Step 6:
Unfold back to a square. Grab one of the corners in the center and pull up and out to unfold. Unfold the opposite side.





   
Step 7:
Raise the straight sides up to form an open-ended trough shape.




   
Step 8:
Pull one end point up and begin a fold at the base (on one side of the center square, which will become the bottom of the box). While bringing the point up, push the side folds inward. One inward fold should overlap the other as they come together.




   
 
Step 9:
Fold the flap inward over the side and into the box. When you fold the flap into the bottom corner of the box, slide the point under or against the flaps on the bottom of the box to secure it in place.
 




   
Step 10:
Repeat Steps 8 and 9 on the other side.
 




   
You can use the finished box by itself, or make a lid for it.

 
Box Lid  
Because the lid requires a smaller piece of paper, we’ll have to tear our NetFlix flap to get rid of some excess.
Step 1:
Double the paper over the long way, but don’t fold all the way across. Instead, just pinch one side to make a small fold as a reference point.

   
Step 2:
Fold one side of paper in toward the center, matching it up with the crease mark on the side that you just made. The folded part should be one quarter of the entire width. Crease well, then refold the opposite way and crease again.

Step 3:
Carefully tear along the fold. 




   
Step 4:
Fold on a diagonal from one corner so that the adjacent edges meet.
Step 5:
Fold along the edge of the triangular portion. Crease well, then refold in the opposite direction.

   
Step 6:
Carefully tear along the fold, as in Step 3.
Step 7:
Fold the square from corner to corner along the diagonal not yet folded.

   
 
Step 8:
Fold the corners in toward the center to make a smaller square.
 




   
Step 9:
Center the box on top of the square, to use as a guide for sizing the lid.


   
Step 10:
Fold two of the sides against the box and crease slightly to mark the folds. Remove the box fold the sides inward to flatten completely along these creases.

Unfold and repeat this step with the other two sides of the square.



   
Step 11:
Flatten out and then fold the tip of each corner inward to meet the corners of the inner square defined by the creases made in the previous step.

Step 12:
Unfold two opposite flaps from the center. 

   
Step 13:
Bring the two sides up to make a shallow trough shape.

Step 14:
Pull one pointed flap upward while pushing the side creases inward. The fold at the base of the flap is the edge of the box’s top.

   
 
Step 15:
Fold the flap over and down against the inside lip of the lid. Tuck the tip of the flap against the other flaps to hold it in place.




   
Step 16:
Repeat Steps 14 and 15 on the remaining side.




   
Your box is ready for presentation.
