Simple gift boxes

These are my favourite boxes - they're so easy to create, you score an A4 piece of card stock at 7, 14, 21, 28 cm (turn card & score ONCE at 7cm - horizontal line).

Then cut on the lines at 7,14,21 & 28 to the one line that was scored horizontally, remove the small rectangle at the end and fold & decorate (always the fun bit).
