Take a piece of paper and lay it horizontally across the box. Next, trace the top and bottom edges of the paper with a pencil. Then, measure about an inch down/up from each line and draw second horizontal lines across the box.

Cut the front of the box open along the two inner lines you just drew. Then, cut along the sides to create a square opening in the front of the box.

Step 5: Side Access Opening

This opening will allow your to retrieve your ammo after using it.

Trace and cut a square opening in the side of the box. It should be low enough for the bottom of the box to be right below it, and big enough to fit your hand through.

Step 6: The Internal Ramp.

The internal ramp will allow the BB's to roll down towards your access opening.

To make the ramp, take the piece of cardboard that you cut from the front of the box, and cut it to get a piece that is the same width as the side of the box. Next, arrange it so it is no higher than than the lower wall of the box front opening, and is sloping down towards the access opening. Finally, hot glue it in place.

Step 7: Paper Stabilizers (Clothespins)

Adding clothespins to the box will allow you to attach paper targets easily and quickly.

Take four clothespins, and arrange them on the box as shown, with the clipping part over the opening of the box front. Next, hot glue them in place.

Step 8: Covering

Covering the box in duct tape will make the box sturdier and better-looking.

Simply cover all parts of the box in duct tape except the clipping ends of the clothespins.
Cool!
