URGH. Firefox or Typepad or both have eaten my nice little post.
I hope it tasted good.
I hope they get indigestion.
Because I don't have time to re-write my whole clever and witty (I wish) monologue about box-making, I will simply point you to this video tutorial, which shows how to make a simple lidded box from scrap paper. My sister-in-law made these from recycled Christmas cards one year to hold money gifts to her nieces and nephews.
In the near future I will be teaching you how to make a lidded box (like a small hat box) in nearly any shape you like. Fun and easy and fairly quick. And inexpensive because it can be made from recycled cereal boxes or posterboard.
I also have an origami box to show you, with a divider inside. Also easy to make.
