What a great idea. I tried it, and I misunderstood the instructions and it didn't come out the size I expected. Oh well, it looked cute and it just will be used for something different than I planned. The bottom line is that it turned out cute and I will make more of them!
"You can make a fabric box with any size square! Check out how easy it is. Makes a great quick and easy gift. The formula would be as follows:
To determine the starting square size: Step 1: The box height + the square size Step 2: Multiply Step 1 by 1.5. The answer is your starting square size (and includes your seam allowance).
To determine the corner length to sew: The box height is always the length of the sewn corner. Example: If you want a 4"-high and 6"-square box, then: The starting square size is: Step 1: 4" + 6" = 10" Step 2: 10" x 1.5 = 15" starting square size. The corner length is 4" (the same as the height of the box) **
