Christmas Gift Box- Curved Square

I hope you enjoy the new design! This box is kind of unusual and does take a bit of patience if you've never folded curves before. I always recommend scoring folds first, but for curved fold, you have to score. If you don't have a bone folder, other good options are a blunt yarn needle, the back of a butter knife, or my personal favorite, the smooth back of a steel crochet hook. 
The other thing that's unusual about this box is that it can be closed in a variety of ways, you don't need to use glue, but you will need to use something. For my example, I used a bit of elastic cord, and put the "top" sides towards the inside of the box, and the bottom flap on the outside. You could also use a decorative sticker, a piece of tape, glue the sides, yarn or ribbon to close.

In other news, I was recently writing a review on Amazon for a French press coffee maker, and had to delete a lot of it because I started getting really off track about the differences in coffee brewing methods. I thought about writing the whole thing here, but I'm really not sure you all want to "hear" me talking about coffee!!
