You will need:
- Cardboard (or any kind of paper with thickness) - and that is all! No sewing, no gluing, no problem.
Cut 2 squares of card, one of them needs to be 1cm smaller than the other - in the example I have 15cm square and a 14cm square.
Flip the card over and fold all corners to the centre point.
Now unfold the card again so you can see the lines it left. Take one corner point of the square and fold it up to touch the fold line on the opposite side.
Do this for all four corners and you'll be left with fold lines like this:
Along the straight edges of the square you can see that a small diamond shape has formed. Cut the length of this small diamond but no further.
To the folding! Firstly take one of the corner points and fold it back to the centre point of the square.
Now for the other sides. This time start with those 'wing' bits and fold them inwards.
Repeat the process with the other piece of card so you have two halves.
Go to town with the filling and the decorating - you have yourself some lovely little gift boxes to give!
Perfect for gifting jewellery or even sewing notions! A box of beautiful buttons...
Happy crafting - enjoy!
