I love love love these little twist top boxes.
You can start with a circular piece of paper for a glue-free box, like the one Victoria's Secret had. The downside is that even a modest size box requires a very large piece of paper.
This glue-together box can be cut from a letter size or A4 piece of paper. Much better for those of us who like to use a cutting machine.

Cut out box pieces.
Pre-crease all folds.
Coil box into a tube and glue at the side.
Close box: collapse top sections, pushing each to the side and working around the box to interlock snowflake arms.
Turn box over and glue the hexagonal base to the bottom flaps.
