If you’ve popped over from instagram REELS – thank you – and here’s how to make the folding gift box:
1) Print off the template and cut around the shape for an easy “how to make an origami self-closing gift box – photo and template”
2) Score along the dotted line
3) Fold along the dotted line
4) Gently curve the ‘wings’
5) Close the box by overlapping three ‘wings’ and tucking the fourth wing under the first….
I’d really love it if you’d pop back to let me know if you’ve had a go at making these, and oh – if you share them on instagram, do tag me @incredibusy – this has been reposted from another of my websites, agreenerlifeforus.com (which needs some love, don’t we all) – however, the prompt #sgiew_resolutions this week is ‘repurpose, reuse, recycle’ and I think this works right?!
