If you’re dying to know how she does it, here’s how, and it’s simpler than you think

First things first, you take the small end tabs on the small sides of the top and completely fold them into the box like so.

After that, you take the long side(the one that would usually be inserted into the slit)folding that one all the way down into the box.

Now for the most important part…

Once you have the small flaps, and the long one folded down, you simply pinch the sides of the box until they fold in until they’re completely closed together. The picture below of what it should look like so far.

After you’ve got the box folded in on itself, you’re ready for the final and most important step of all.

For the last and final step, you take the flap that is still sticking up and slide it into the other three folded ones. Be sure that your sides are nice and creased because that’s what will be holding it closed.
