Twist Top Snowflake Box

I love love love these little twist top boxes. You can start with a circular piece of paper for a glue-free box, like the one Victoria's Secret had. The downside is that even a modest size box requires a very large piece of paper.

This glue-together box can be cut from a letter size or A4 piece of paper. Much better for those of us who like to use a cutting machine.
