|Image Source - Downloadable Template|
Here are the steps I took in creating this project.
1. Download the template and print out onto standard copy paper. Do not adjust the scale of your image.
2. Lay out the template onto your pizza boxes which have been broken down flat.
3. Line up the images to form one template, using the cross hairs, positioning them in each area of your box. Tip: hold your template up to a window to ensure your pieces are lined up properly before laying onto the box. Tape together using clear tape. Remember, this template is designed for a specific Amazon shipping box and I am using a Club Scrap pizza box, it fit in nicely, don't ya think?
4. Tack down the templates onto the pizza box with tape.
5. Cut out the template and pizza box pieces using a utility craft knife and large ruler. It is important to keep the template pieces tacked onto the box pieces after cutting for future reference.
6. Score the box pieces through the template with a bone folder or dull pencil.
7. Cut through the top layer only of the box pieces on the score lines using a craft knife.

9. Connect the pieces together with CS® Book Binding Glue.
10. Once the 3 boxes and lid are assembled ink the edges with CS® Earth Hybrid ink and cover with papers from the Dungarees kit.
|Carefully attach the hinges to the boxes through the punched holes being careful to arrange the boxes for proper hole alignment. Tip: There is a wrong and a right way. If the hinges and holes are not lining up, don't panic, the boxes just need to be rotated to the proper side. Secure all pieces together using metal brads.|
11. Complete the box with embellishments on the lid. Stamped quote, zipper, tag and buttons from the Dungarees kit. Fray the edges of the papers using the Tonic paper distress tool.
