Take Out Box Tutorial

1. Print your file on cardstock. Gather necessary supplies.
(Recommended supplies: ruler, scissors, glue, bone folder with pointed tip, stapler, craft knife)
Be sure to set your margins as close to 0 as possible.



2. Using the bone folder score the box on all fold lines. From each corner of the
center rectangle, make 3 score lines: one to the middle dashed line, and one to each inside corner.
Also, score around the center rectangle and the top edge.



3. There should be a total of 20 scores when you are done.
See the picture below for a diagram of all score lines. Score lines are traced in black.

5. Turn your box over so that the printed side is down and fold in the top tabs.

from the bottom corner up.

over to one side and then the other.



8. Pinch the bottom rectangular ends to form a 90 degree angle.

10. Turn your box over so that the printed side is down and apply glue to the
triangle shaped pieces formed by your folds. There should be a total of 8, 2 at each corner



11. Pinch the triangle shaped pieces together, to form the corners of the box.



12. Fold the newly formed triangle pieces towards the smaller edges of the box.
