This series has side wings or wrap arounds as corner shapers.
The first in the series has truncated diamonds on the outside of the box and the tips turned into the box to prevent the wings from flying outwards. If you like the wings popping outwards then make the box without turning the top hem over and into the inside of the box. The side wings are folded from to the left and the edges of the top diamond wraps around it on the left and turns under freely on the right.
A variation has the top turned out as a rim and the internal wings halved and squashed across the edge seams. The covering truncated diamond cannot tuck into the underlying diamond in this version.
The next version turns half the diamond into the box and converts the turned over edge into triangles in the middle of the sides which are turned outwards.
THE BOAT BOX
A variation folds these triangles to look like a sail boat.
