Score the 9 3/4" square piece of cardstock at 3 1/4" on all sides.
Score the 5 7/8" square piece of cardstock at 1" on all sides.
Cut off the four corners on your three biggest pieces of cardstock (11 1/4", 9 3/4", and 8 1/4" squares) so that each piece now looks like a cross or plus sign.
Apply sticky tape to the back side of the middle squares of the 9 3/4" and 8 1/4" crosses, peel off backing and adhere them on top of each other (largest to smallest).
Now for your lid. Take your 5 7/8" square piece of cardstock and cut slits on two sides at the score line.
Apply sticky tape to the "tabs" you've made. (Make sure you apply it to the side of paper that you want to show on the outside of the box).
Fold up lid sides and attach tabs to the inside of the sides.
Fold up your sides of the "scrapbook" and put the lid on top.
Now you know how to make your scrapbook in a box. Fill it with pictures and/or journaling and embellishments of your choice, tie it up with a ribbon and you've got a wonderful gift for someone special!
