  1. Make sure you have all your supplies ready.
  2. On the cardboard paper, trace the CD to form a circle.
  3. Divide that circle into four equal sectors and mark.
  4. Using the CD, draw another circle to overlap the first one as shown in the picture.
  5. In each sector you have marked out, draw an arc using the CD so that there are four arcs in each circle.
  6. Cut along the outline of the circles.
  7. Bend the inner arcs using a scoring tool. Fold along the inner arcs to form a box.
  8. Place your gift inside the box.
  9. Tie a ribbon bow to finish and decorate to your taste.

Happy gifting!
