How to Upcycle a Box Half into a Smaller Box:
To start off take your lonesome box half and turn it so the wrong side is up facing you.
Fold one side of the box over and up to the lip of the box.
Open up and turn around and repeat with the other side. You have now formed your new side of your box!
Using a pair of scissors, cut along the fold lines, just for the lip of the box on both sides
Then fold those two cut pieces inward and then fold one half of the box over the other!
You have now used up your single box half and upcycled it into a smaller box! Easy right?!
