I will be showing you how to make a simple yet functional laser cut package. In this case we will be making a box to hold and distribute, “Hello My Name Is” badges.  To complete this Instructable you will need chipboard, glue, illustrator and a laser cutter.

Step 1: Measuring the Badges

We need to make a box that is slightly bigger than our badges. So once we have the dimensions for the badges we can start to create a box in Illustrator. Keep in mind that while we are just creating a simple box, we need to include a slot for the badges to dispense from. Once we have our measurements, let’s make dispensing slot exactly the same size as the badge itself. This will create a bit of tension when tearing off a badge.
Where do you get your chipboard? I have had trouble finding sheets bigger than 8.5 x11
