To make a paper gift box, take two paper squares -- one that is 8-square inches and another than is just a hair smaller ( 7-and-7/8-square inches). Fold the square in half, making a distinct crease. Open the square and fold it the other way too, making a second crease. (Follow these instructions for both boxes.)
