Copy paper is not suitable for folding depending on the article, and it may feel rough, and hangnail or the folded corners may not be decided sharply, but it can not be helped, and it is as clean as possible. Let’s keep it to finish. If you fold it with high-quality paper, such as wrapping paper, this will not happen.

At this point, unfold the part that was folded from both sides and make a crease at the position of Photo F (the part where the width of the crease on the paper above is narrow).

It’s hard to understand because it’s pure white, but Photo G shows the central part folded up. Eventually, this part will be folded down, and the lid will be inserted, but for the next step, temporarily fold it upwards.

As shown in Photo L, the excess paper with the lid folded is hidden inside by inserting it inside. The tanned line on the right side of the photo is the part with creases in Photo F. It has a streak, so you can easily fold it.
