I made a nice little puppet theater from a cardboard box. It only required three cuts and some strong tape, no extra cardboard was necessary.

Materials: sturdy cardboard shipping box, utility knife, metal ruler, a pen or marker, strong tape such as clear duct tape.

Step 2: Cutting the legs

Flip the box around so you are working on the bottom of the puppet theater. Using a nice strong ruler, cut through the box along both of the long sides about an inch and a quarter in from the edges. Then measure and find the middle of the box and make another cut through the box, perpendicular to the first two cuts. This makes two flaps which will be the legs of the theater.

Step 3: Opening up the stage front

Once you have the bottom of the theater opened up, open up the front of the theater. Push three of the flaps inside the theater: push one onto the ceiling and push the two side flaps onto the walls. Tape these three flaps to the inside of the theater. Take the fourth flap and fold it down outside the theater.

Cool this will be great for my Sunday School Puppet show.
Nice job! I would have never thought of doing it this way... and if I were to try this (before seeing this Instructable), I would fail badly. Nice job once again.
