Triangle Box

by Beate Johns

Create a triangle shaped box out of a cardstock rectangle.

Supplies

  • 5" x 10" piece of Cardstock
  • Scoring Tool
  • Scor-Tape™ or other strong adhesive
  • Crop-a-Dile™ or other hole punch
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Ribbon
  • Pencil
  • Additional cardstock and embellishments

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Stamp your cardstock.

  2. Step 2

    Turn your cardstock around.
    Mark the middle of both short sides of the cardstock with a pencil.

  3. Step 3

    Scoreyour cardstock at 5" on the long side.

  4. Step 4

    Line up the mark you made on one of the short sides with the middle of long side.

    Score to create a diagonal fold.

  5. Step 5

    Line up the mark with the other side of the middle fold and score.

    You will now have a triangle of scored lines.

  6. Step 6

    Repeat step four and five on the other side of the cardstock.

  7. Step 7

    Prefold all your score lines.

  8. Step 8 (Optional)

    Add strong adhesive to the edge of one of the long sides.

  9. Step 9

    Assemble the box by bringing the two ends together and securing with the adhesive just applied.

  10. Step 10

    Use a Crop-a-Dile™ to punch through the taped sides.

  11. Bring both of the opposite sides together and punch a hole through them as well.

  12. Step 11

    Fill your box.

  13. Step 12

    Thread your ribbon through the punched holes. It will keep your box closed.

  14. Step 13

    Tie ribbon and decorate your box front.

Variations

  1. Change the size
    You can make this box in a lot of different sizes. Just keep the length of your cardstock two times the width (e.g.: 3" x 6", 4" x 8" and so on).
    The picture here shows a box made out of a 2 1/2" x 5" piece of cardstock. It holds one Dove chocolate piece.
