There are quite a few ideas that made me exited for the really useful boxes on whatthefold.com. One of my favorite are the good old pillow boxes. Use them as tie boxes, winter hat boxes or as boxes for socks. Then there is the possibility of using them for wedding or birthday place cards that will also double up as favor boxes for guests attending the event. All you need to make any of these project is to print on the pillow box ahead of time
-X-acto Knife or Scissors
-Glue (Check our List of Glues that we suggest)
Lets Get Started:
Print out the Download template found at the top of the page. Use An X-acto knife or scissors to cut out the solid lines of the pillow box.
Take a bone folder and ruler to score out all of the dotted lines of the cupcake box. Use the ruler to keep the score lines straight. Bend all of the lines that are dotted inside of themselves.
Make a score line along the curved dotted line. If you have a flexible ruler that can be bent to follow the curve, use it to guide your bone folder (you will get a much cleaner curve), but if you don’t you will have to do it free handed.
Take the little tab and fold it on itself. Take some glue and apply it to the tab of paper (be careful here, the glue needs to be applied to the tab on the side of the box with no dotted-lines)
Fold the box over so that the freshly glued tab presses on the other side of the box. Wait for the glue to dry before going to the next step.
At each ends of the box, press down on the flaps to close the box, making sure you are following the scored lines as accurately as possible (by doing so, you are creating the edges of the box).
You are now done! The only thing left to do is to put those boxes to good use!
