All in One Box Template
Using a temporary adhesive, adhere template to cardstock and cut with hobby knife and ruler.
If you are using double-sided patterned paper, place the paper face up on the table with the side you would like to be the bottom of the box facing you. The face-down side will make the top of the box.
Score along the dotted lines.
Remove the template from cardstock. Use a bone folder to burnish the score lines – fold all blue dotted lines as mountain folds and all red dotted lines as valley folds.
Step 4 (Optional)
Emboss the bottom half of the box by running it through the die cutting machine twice (once from each end to cover the length of the entire piece of cardstock). Line the embossing folder up so that the edge of the folder comes to the top edge of the lower half of the box.
Place adhesive on the tab on the bottom half of the box. Adhere to underside of opposite edge of box, as pictured.
On the bottom of the box there are four flaps – alternating tall and short ones. Place adhesive on the underside of the triangular portion of the tabs on the taller flaps. Line up the score lines on the tall tab with corresponding score lines on the short tab immediately to its right. This creates two bottom flaps.
Tuck the flaps over and under one another to close the box.
Place adhesive on the top side of the flap on the top of the box. Adhere to underside of opposite edge of box top.
The all-in-one box is now assembled.
Embellish as desired.
