Magic Boxes: A Life As Lou Online Class

To begin, choose your paper. You need six sheets of matching paper (preferably a heavier weight). Choose one for your outside, a contrasting one for your lid, and 4 to create the inside boxes. Cut as follows (all measurement are in inches):

Outside: 6 x 11 3/4ths
Lid: 8.5 x 8.5
4 inner boxes: 8 x 8

The only challenging part of this project is creating the lid and inside compartments. The good news is, they follow the exact same process.

1. Draw a line from corner to corner on the back side of your paper. January 2008 341

2. fold the tips of your paper in so that they meet at the center. It will look as though you are folding an envelope. January 2008 342 January 2008 343
Fold in all four sides, and then unfold. January 2008 344

3. Fold the tips up to the folded line on each side. January 2008 346 This fold gives you the sides of your box. Do it on all four sides. When you are finished you should have creases all the way around. I have taken a marker and drawn lines on my creases. This is not necessary. This is to help you see where there should be folds. The first two lines you drew will NOT be creased.

4. January 2008 348 I have also colored four triangles. Cut those out. You will be left with this:

5. January 2008 350 See the arrows? Cut those lines up to the tip of the arrows. You should get this: January 2008 351

6. You have created two sets of tabs. Bring them together to form a wall of the box like so: January 2008 352 Now fold the flap over those tabs. January 2008 354 Do the same thing on the other side.

7. January 2008 356 Your flaps won’t want to stay down on their own. Fold in the other two flaps and press the corners in firmly. January 2008 358 Once all four corners are in, the box will stay together without any glue. January 2008 359

Repeat this process on your 8 inch and 8.5 inch papers. You should have 4 boxes and the lid.

Now for the outside.

1. Take the 11 3/4ths x 6 inch paper and fold it in half.

2. Open it up and fold the ends into the center. You should have four perfectly even quadrants.

To put the boxes in, first adhere one to the very top right corner, making certain that you are flush with the corner of the outside paper.

Adhere the next one to the bottom left corner, once again flush to the edge.
January 2008 361
Align the inside two boxes so that they are in centered in their own quarter of the paper, but not overlapping each other so you can still fold the box shut.

Once the glue is dry (I do recommend a liquid glue to extra staying power) you should be able to close your box and the lid should fit perfectly on top. One corner of the box will remain open, as no part is designed to overlap. To remedy this, I like to tie mine up with ribbons. You can embellish them any way that you like.

Here are a few that I’ve made.

    Thank you Leah! I love this, and I could probably even do it myself!!! Woo hoo!

  2. Robert says:

    < ![CDATA[Those boxes are very impressive. Maybe for Ellie's birthday, I'll have to go to the trouble to make one since I'm notorious for doing the male thing and just going with the gift bag. I'd have to 1) find the time to make one, 2) find something to give her that fits in one, and 3) find a place to hide it all.

    Neat boxes.]]>

  3. Heidi says:

    Yay! Thanks so much for the tutorial and saving me the headache of figuring out all the fiddly measurements. Can’t wait to make some!

  35. Ryan says:

    Great gift idea. I got to show my wife!

  36. Caroline says:

    This is a great way to wrap up jewelry that you are giving as a gift.

  37. Beth says:

    My mom made these boxes years ago for us 3 girls for Christmas. I still have mine and treasure it. Now I am going to try to make them too.

  41. RN4081 says:

    This is so creative. The wrapping is actually a gift too.

  42. Beverly says:

    What beautiful work! Most anyone would desire those as special gifts!

  43. ˙Hope Anita Smith says:

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. It is truly beautiful. I love your blog.

  44. Nicka says:

    < ![CDATA[Muito muito legal!!!!!!

    Parabéns!!!!]]>

  45. Lisette says:

    Beautiful… will try this over the next free weekend!

  46. Kristina Kriechel says:

    That is THE coolest thing. I can’t wait to make one for my mom. She loves interesting boxes and will flip over this!!

  47. stacey j says:

    this is so great! it was my sisters 18th birthday to day and this perfect for jewelry i made her! thank you!

  48. Amber S. says:

    I love that you took a basic origami box (one that I’ve made dozens of times) and made something so creative and fascinating (I can see myself opening and closing this over and over). Thank you for so generously sharing the complete instructions!

  49. Oh the magic of paper. Cool stuff.

  50. Kathy C says:

    What a lovely idea. I just made my first one and it works! Your directions are great. Please keep up the great ideas.

  51. cathleen says:

    I would love to buy one! Does anyone here sell them? Perhaps on Etsy?

  52. Sue says:

    I made this for a girlfriend for her birthday. I lined the little boxes with additional paper and filled them will little candies. That way, the original box doesn’t get dirty from the sugar, and she can use the boxes again for something else, i.e. earrings. She really loved the way it looked. I also added a flap to the outside box and a magnet so the entire thing snapped closed.

  53. clare says:

    This was so much easier than i thought it was going to be! I had an old box that had a magnetized flap, so I cut the magnets out and attached them to the bottom box and the outer flap, and the box didn’t need ribbons to close (though they also look very nice).

  54. Min says:

    Looove this :) thanks so much for putting this up

  55. Artzyjen from the HER board says:

    Hey girl! I was just playing with stumbleupon and guess whose site came up? These boxes are so cute! I think I’m going to give them a try now that I’m home with the little one. :-) How are you and the family doing? How’s your little one?

  56. Matt says:

    Awesome, I’m totally making some of these for Christmas 2009

  57. Emily says:

    Great for gifts.. looks expensive but hardly costs anything!

  58. Jayne says:

    those are absolutely gorgeous! thank you for the directions…i have some beautiful paper that will make some beautiful boxes.

  59. Kathy says:

    I can’t wait to try this out!

  60. brianna says:

    I learned how to make small boxes years ago and have since forgotten – this was a welcomed find! The woman who taught me used old photographs and greeting cards for the box tops.

    I’ve just discovered this and they’re brilliant. I think there could be a few being made for Christmas.

  107. Maggie says:

    < ![CDATA[I just finished making one of these boxes for my friend and I have a few comments.
    1- The boxes are a lot littler than I was expecting, about the size of a slightly elongate size of soup.
    2- I also found it helpful to instead of using 11 and 3/4 in length for the big sheet of paper to use 30 cm. It will fold easier.
    3- Use hot glue from a hot glue gun! I love glue guns and this makes it so easy.]]>

  108. nikhil says:

    need a gal fren to try these……heh :-)

  109. Jamie says:

    I made one with pastel paper, with the boxes headed down from left to right, and put “BABY” on the front of the boxes when it’s all unfolded. This is great for a baby shower gift! I can put little things in each box, and have the box be part of the gift! Thank you very much for sharing!!
