Well, Father's day is approaching and I decided that instead of just boxing up a gift for my dad, I'd spice it up a little and put his gifts in a Chinese take-out box. No particular reason, I had just seen a couple postings on here that sparked my interest in creating one.

However, I decided to go about it all the hard ways and create  my own template...NOT a grand idea.

Here you can see my template, sketched on a post-it note (therein lies my FIRST mistake)...

Followed by my first rough cut out attempt. Looks good so far!

And put together! Voila! A chinese take out box!

There's only one SMALL problem...

...it's TINY!!! That's right, that's a quarter. And here is my hand.

So I tried again and this is what I came up with. Not too much bigger, but at least capable of holding a fortune cookie.


And so, I guess dad isn't getting a very big present this Father's Day. Boo for him.

They're adorable though, teeny tiny takeout boxes. Smiley So the secret is starting with gigantic paper?

Oooo... takeout nesting boxes!  Cheesy

haven't you heard?  good things come in small packages!  if I had the idea to put something in a chinese takeaway box, I'd never succeed so easily with making my own.  well done.
