Here is the Take out Box tutorial I promised:
I made this one with 2 1/2″ sides, but you can change that up really easy.

- One 9 1/2″ square cardstock piece
- Scoring tool
- Paper Cutter
- Crop-a-dile or other hole punch
Score your cardstock at 1″, 3 1/2″, 6″ and 8 1/2″.
Turn your cardstock 90 degrees and score again at 1″, 3 1/2″, 6″ and 8 1/2″.
Cut away the outer score panels, leaving only the center panels. These will be the flaps of your box.
Add diagonal scores to your corner squares.
For Scor-Pal users: Line your cardstock up with your corner point at the 5 1/2″ mark. Make sure the point of your lower square is lined up with the 5 1/2″ line. Now score your two outer squares.
Repeat step four on your other two outer squares.
Cut from the low point of one flap, to the low point to the next flap. It will cut your outer squares in half, leaving only a scored triangle. Repeat on all four corners.
Stamp your box front. It’s okay if your images overlap a little at the triangle sections. Those won’t be seen.
Prefold all your scores.
Decorate your flaps. I cut mine with my Coluzzle. You can also cut it with decorative scissors, add scallops with your corner punch or even leave them straight.
Step 10 (optional):
Tape your flaps down. I used dimensionals so the flaps would stick right on the wall. It will show them off more.
Fold one side up at a time and punch a hole with your Crop-A-Dile or other hole punch.
I punched through the the side triangles to make them stay put on the sides.
Punch a hole on the left and right of each side of the box.
Hold box together by threading pieces of ribbon through the holes and tying knots.
Decorate your box and fill it.
You can change the size up of this box really easy. Your square cardstock has to be
3x the size of your side plus 2x the width of your flap.
Decorate the flap a different way. Check step 9 for some other flap ideas.
Make your flaps longer ovals and use those to make a pointed lit.
