Great Papa’s Box

My grandfather taught me how to make this box using only paper and scissors when I was 10 years old.

I have shared it with many people over the years, but I have never met anyone who has ever seen it before.  There are many paper box patterns to be found in books and online, but I haven’t seen this one.  Please feel free to pass it on, but give credit to my grandfather, Chuck Scherer.  His life is an inspiration to the Daring Boy’s Club in many ways, as he has demonstrated 95 years of living life as a daring adventure. That being said, even daring boys need some “wow-’em” skills up their sleeves, like this paper box to put presents in.

Here’s how to do it.
