Here is the pentagon paper box pattern that I created. It makes a fairly decent sized box. But if you want one the size of those in the picture, you'll want to change the size a little bit. I made it this size so I could fit the whole pattern on one page. Any bigger, and you'll have to move the lid to another page. If you DO want to change the size, here are the directions.
1. On your layers menu, highlight all four layers--the lid lines, lid cover, box cover and box lines. Hold down the CTRL key to highlight all four layers at the same time.
2. Press CTRL+T. Hold down the SHIFT key as you grab the corner and resize the box to the desired size.
3. Now press enter and unhighlight the layers.
4. Go to File, New and create a new 8 1/2 x 11 page. Go back to the original document.
5. Highlight the lid cover and lid lines layers, and drag over to the new page.
That's it! You MUST do it this way, because if you change the size of the box and the lid separately, the lid might not fit the box anymore! Make sure you resize them together so that they will still fit.
I am also adding a PDF version of this pattern, in case you are not savvy on Photoshop and just want to print it on regular scrapbooking paper--here is the download-- Pentagon Box PDF.

Connie Prince. I love her stuff! I got this one at Scrap Matters, though she also designs for Gotta Pixel, Scrapbook Bytes, and Elemental Scraps. Connie has kindly given me permission to give this finished pattern out as a freebie .pdf. If you like this kit, please go see her stuff! I LOVE her style! I will also give out two other freebies using two more of her kits - Sunny Rays and Warm Days, and Moment in the Sun.
Here are the written directions on how to digital scrapbook this paper box. There is a video at the bottom.
1. Download the file attatched above--the pentagon box. Unzip it, and open it in Photoshop.
2. You'll note that there are four layers--the Box Cover, Box Lines, Lid Lines, and Lid Cover. Make sure the line layers always stay on top.
3. Pull in the paper you want as your main background. Place it so it completely covers the blue Box Cover layer. Put your cursor on the Box Cover layer, and then CTRL+click on the layer (the picture portion of that layer). You will now see "marching ants" around the layer.
4. With ants still marching, click on the paper layer. Then do CTRL+C and then CTRL+V. Now you've copied a new Paper layer, in the shape of the blue Cover layer. You might want to press the eye button on the Box Cover layer to make it invisible. You won't need it again.
5. Make sure the Box Lines layer is on top of the new Paper layer.
10. THE BOX: Fold all edges as perfectly as you can.Hopefully you remembered to keep your lines layer on top, so they are very easy to see.
Once you've done that for all five sides, your lid is finished! Yay! It might be a tight fit--you have to be pretty exact or it won't fit right. Just be sure that when you make the box, you don't let it be loose--make sure you fold it and tape it exactly. Also, make sure that when you fold the lid, each crease is a 90 degree angle.
And last of all, here are a few downloadable pdf files--all of them are completely finished pentagon boxes, ready to print, and all are made with kits by Connie Prince! It includes the file for the box used in the example. Enjoy!
