Click on template twice to enlarge. Right click, copy, save and print on heavy card stock. Cut out templates. The template above will yield three matchboxes.
1. Solid lines designate where to fold. Dotted lines designate where to cut. I recommend using a scoring tool if possible. And in case you didn't know, some paper slicers for scrapbooking also have scoring blades. You can not imagine the joy I experienced when I first discovered this, seriously.
2. Tuck in flaps on each side and glue. Fold top flap over side flaps and glue. Repeat on opposite side of box.
3. This is what the first part of your box should look like when finished.
1. Fold on solid lines.
2. Glue in place. I recommend folding the box so the lines do not show on the outside.
Now just place the two pieces together and you've got a matchbox!
You might be wondering what the boxes are for. If all goes well, I'll be posting a tutorial later this week to answer that.
