Box Help Needed Badly
 
I need to find some kind of template or instructions to make boxes out of 12x12 designer paper for some gifts for my office that I needed like yesterday...
I was making 2,5,7,10 boxes but they are too small:(.
Is there a box like that, that I can make bigger with 12x12 paper??
Or is someone smart enough to scale the directions up for me to use bigger paper?

PS
I am VERY scoring and cutting challenged so be warned:rolleyes:

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How big is the item you need to be boxed?

jpmayo 12-19-2007 01:33 PM

they are miniature lotions from VS...about 5 inches tall.

laurakj 12-19-2007 01:38 PM

hang on, I'm working on something :)

jpmayo 12-19-2007 01:50 PM

thank you!!!!!!!

I have already messed up one sheet of dp trying to do this on my own, I soooooo stink at measuring!

laurakj 12-19-2007 01:51 PM

Hmm I'm not finding what I was looking for :( I thought I had a template saved for a larger box.

laurakj 12-19-2007 01:52 PM

how big around are the lotions? Basically how big do you need the base of the box to be?

jpmayo 12-19-2007 01:55 PM

an inch taller and wider than the original would be perfect.
I've tried just adding an inch to all the measurements and it isnt working:(
Maybe I am doing something wrong (obviously), lol...

well, there's not enough paper to go that big hmmm.

The taller isn't a problem, but the wider is. can it be 1/2 " wider? and be big enough?

Yes, actually some people that arent getting lotion and are just getting covered nuggets are getting them in Origami boxes:) I had some left over already cut out from a SBS.

Thanks Patty:-D

Yep:)

I think that I had an "aha" moment.....
If I dont make the scalloped flap and just close it another way then I have lots more height, right?

laurakj 12-19-2007 02:14 PM

sure, or you could make the flap smaller too.

you could do

2, 5.5, 7.5, 11 then use the last 1" for the tab to hold it closed than have a 2" flap on top

laurakj 12-19-2007 02:29 PM

I'd love to see what you end up making :D
