    Got all supplies and tools? Let's start! First, take a sheet of paper and place it horizontally on a table. The side of paper facing you will be inside the box. Then, put a CD in the left top corner of your paper. Leave a distance from edges.

    Take a sharp pencil and mark center of your CD on the paper.

    Now, using a triangle, draw rectangular lines going through previously marked point. The triangle has to be placed along the edge of the paper. The lines should be longer than diameter of the CD.

    Place the CD back on the paper (with marked point in the center of a hole) and draw a circle with a sharpened pencil.

    Again, using a CD, draw half circles based on the points where circle and lines intersect. These shapes will form the sides of your gift box.

    In the last quarter, draw a full circle using the bottom and the right points of intersection between the previous circle and rectangular lines.

    Using a triangle, draw rectangular lines inside second circle. In this case, lines are based on the points where two circles intersect.

    It’s time for drawing half circles in all quarters of the bottom circle :)

    Scissors time! To make the cutting part more comfortable, leave some margin around.

    Now, cut out the whole shape. Try to be as precise as you can.

    Take an empty pen and score every curved line using a CD. Place a piece of felt under the cut-out shape - it will help you in scoring the lines.

    You’re almost done! You just need to fold every single side shape of the box.
