Triangular closure box

These measurements will make a box finished size 5 x 5 x1.

Cut 2 card pieces 7 x7 inch.
score both at 1" and 6" on both sides, then cut across diagonal to make 4 triangles.
cut the squares from two of the triangles and notch the squares on the other triangles as per the pictures below.
  • Glue or tape side on the triangles with the squares removed and tape together with the notched triangles.
  • remove the "V" from the triangles but leave one, this will become the hinge joining the two boxes.
You now have the basic closure box, it can be decorated using either squares circles etc
