Because this freebie comes from My Memories, you can use the My Memories Suite software to personalize your box. If you don’t have the software, you can still download the sample project and the elements, but you will not be able to customize your project.You don’t have to own the software to print the template and assemble the boxes.

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.

4. Cut out your box. 

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

6. Starting on one corner, find the center score line and fold the paper from the bottom corner up. 

7. Keeping the center fold together, fold the triangular piece you have just created over to one side and then the other. 

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

9. Repeat steps 6-8 for each of the four corners and bottom edges of the box. 

 

 

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. 

The edges should overlap, and staple in place.

13. Using the craft knife, cut the slit on the top flap. 

14. Fold the top flap in and secure the hook in the opening to keep the box closed.
