How cute. Just curious, what you have used these boxes for?

Thanks! This version I use for mailing small items, but it can be tweeked for just about anything. Just change up your measurments, cut off a couple of flaps, glue in a different spot and you have a gift box  Smiley

This is amazing!  I love your tute.  It's so easy to understand.  And the box looks great.  Nice job.

Thank you! I always worry that I am going to be the only person that understands it and everyone else will need a translator  Cheesy

I love to find new ways to recycle or reuse items and this is one of my favorites!



You will need -
Junk Mail Card Stock (any type)
Ruler
Pen
Exacto Knife
Hot Glue Gun

You can use what ever type of glue you would like or even tape. I just like to use hot glue because it dries the fastest.



Step 1. Measure in 1" from the edge of your cardstock and mark. Do this at intervals around all four sides. You can really use whatever measurement that you would like. Just make sure it is the same all of the way around.



Step 2. Connect your marks so that they make a straight line along each side. Be sure to draw all of the way to each edge so that the lines intersect at the corners.



Step 3. Using heavy pressure run your pen up and down each line a few times to "score" them for folding.



Step 4. Measure the length of your card stock and divide it in half to find the center. Lightly mark a center line.  Now mark a 1/2" on either side of this line. Repeat on the other edge.



Step 5. Connect your marks and use heavy pressure to score these lines also.



Step 6. With the long side of your cardstock horizontal, and using the lines as guides, take your exacto knife and cut the flaps as shown.  Be careful not to cut above your 1" mark.



Step 7. Fold along all of the lines you have made. I prefer to keep all of my markings hidden on the inside.



Step 8. Fold your box into it's basic shape to try it out and see if you have your sides even. This is where you will find out if you can draw a straight line and how good your math was when you found the center of your sheet. If everything is right it should fold up just like a clam shell.



Step 9. You will have 3 open sides and a solid one. Hot glue the side directly opposite of the solid one.




Step 10. Pick one of the other open ends and hot glue that together.



And you should now have a super awesome recycled box!

I can't even imagine what a pain it was to use the yarn, but it was an awesome choice because the hair and mustache make the piece! Totally rocks!
