STEP 3: Once you unfold your paper, you should see all your fold lines.  If you do not see fold lines just repeat first two steps and crease more firmly.  On one corner, go to first fold on each side of the corner and cut down to the second fold line.  Repeat on opposite corner only.  Then trim the triangle piece on the side of the cut line about a little more then half way.  (If you don’t trim, they will stick out the sides of the box, once folded)”

To make the top of the gift box, just start with a 9 1/2″ square and follow the steps on HOW TO MAKE A CANDY BOX  http://joyfuldaisy.com/?p=185
