Take Out Box Template
Step by Step Instructions
1 Select 2 sheets of brown A4 card stock & place the top and 2 sides of the template on the edges of the card. This will cut down on the amount of area that needs to be cut away later.
2 Draw around the template, here a black pen has been used as this will be on the inside of the box and it won`t been seen, alternatively use a pencil & rub away after use.
3 Take the design ruler & score along all the required lines, now cut the box out & also cut the handles as per instructions.
4 Crease all the score lines up so they have a crisp edge as this will give a professional finish to the project.
5 Cut the top area out with a craft knife, this is the slot for the side of the box lid to be tucked into later.
6 Secure the Labels 4 die onto the large rectangle area of the box using some low tack tape.
7 Cut both panels out & attach the acetate to the reverse of the aperture. Use wonder tape or Cosmic Shimmer glue on the tabs.
8 Remove the tape backing & join the side edge of the 2nd shape onto the box tab.
9 Turn the box over & remove the tape on the 2nd piece.
10 Now press the remaining edge down. Assembling the box in this way will mean you can add more pressure when sticking the sides down.
11 Open the box out and tuck the box base flaps into place. Secure the flaps in place with either the glue or wonder tape. The flaps can either go inside or out depending on how you want it to look.
12 Now fold the lid area in & tuck the tabs through the cut holes.
13 Take a piece of red card and cut & emboss a scalloped circle in the centre. The size needs to fit the base of the muffin cupcake case.
14 Measure the width of the base of the box. In this case this box it will be 3 .25”. So score a line either side of the circle with the measurement and then allow 0.5” either side to act as a tab for the base when it`s added to the box.
15 Make sure the cup case fits neatly into the cut area & crease the side tabs down to make a step effect.
16 Place the base inside the box. Glue the side tabs in place or just leave free standing.
17 Cut 2 panels to fit on the side of the box. Now swipe the card with the anti static bag. Ink up the chocolate stamps with the Perfect medium ink pad.
18 Now stamp & then sprinkle the bright gold embossing powder over the ink & heat set using the heat gun.
19 Stamp & emboss the chocolate sentiment. Cut the sentiment out using the small labels 4 die. Also cut at the same time the larger size shape in red. To allow the mat to sit nicely onto the box edge, trim the top & bottom edge off the shape.
20 Stamp & emboss the chocolate sentiment. Cut the sentiment out using the small labels 4 die. Also cut at the same time the larger size shape in red. To allow the mat to sit nicely onto the box edge, trim the top & bottom edge off the shape.
21 Attach both pieces to the box lid using some foam tape for added dimension. Make a small bow with some red Cosmic Shimmer ribbon & attach to the corner of the label.
22 Make some lovely homemade cupcakes to go inside the box for a perfect little gift.
