On line A fold down the flap to the inside of the box. #11 Turn and repeat on the other end. #12 . You now have the bottom of your box. Stuff it with a crumpled piece of paper to keep your box from getting crushed.
Repeat to MAKE THE TOP which needs to be slightly larger. In steps 5A and 8A fold the sides a little shy of the center leaving about a 1/16" gap if using thin paper or up to 1/4" gap using light card stock. WATCH THE VIDEO .

Stuff the box so it will not get crushed. One sheet of crumpled paper from your recylce bin works well. Clearly write the address above on your box and consider using colorful stamps to close the top and bottom. The stamp cancellations showing it's origin will make it even more meaningful.
It's okay to put as many stamps as you want anywhere on your SOUL BOX as long as they add up to the postage due. If you have stuffed the box if will go through the postal system just fine.
