Take Out Boxes

18 Nov

Take Out Boxes are incredibly popular among paper crafters. They are an easy hand out, gift box, centerpieces for parties or just for fun! Now through November 26th, My Memories Suite is giving away a take out box template. These free printables come in 3 choices of style- but all are completely customizable if you have the My Memories Suite software. You don’t have to be a My Memories Suite owner to score on this deal, but you do have to have one of their accounts (free!) to download it. Please note: YOU DO NOT NEED A FANCY CRAFT CUTTER (i.e. silhouette or cricut) all you need is an X-acto knife or razer blade.

Take Out Box Tutorial
1. Print your file on cardstock. Gather necessary supplies.
(Tutorial pictures 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.
