Thank you for this detailed instruction sheet! I was looking for directions to this little box and was thrilled when I read your location in THROUGH THE CRAFT ROOM DOOR subscription! It is exactly what I was looking for and am excited to make many of them for my cards! Thanks again. Debi

I'm doing a craft fair this coming Friday and wanted a box or bag to put necklaces in when purchased, these little boxes are PERFECT! I'm going to print out a label with my info for the top. Oh and since I have TONS of cardstock laying around and glue, this doesn't cost me anything!

How did the Craft Fair do? How many boxes did you end up doing? And, were these boxes as easy as they look on the tutorial? Hope all went well! Debi

I am new to this fantastic community and I am not sure of the rules. Am I allowed to use these instructions to teach a class. I will ensure that you and this website are given full credit?

Hi Jen, how rude of me, I just posted a question to you without saying thank you for posting such a lovely project.

I think these are amazing!
I am finding the formula for enlarging it quite confusing though

Hi Emma,
You can use other scoring tools to create the box. The measurements are listed in the tutorial.

Could you possibly help me with scoring measurements for a pizza box that would hold a 5 x 7 invitation inside please? Also, could I use one sheet of cardstock for this or will I need to use two?
