    Question 1 year ago on Step 1

    Hey -- nice box and I'd like to cut it. I have to resize it in Inkscape, so what are the ideal dimensions if I'm using 1/8 inch material? I want to make sure all the tabs & slots line up perfectly.

    Hey !
    You Just have to be sure that the depth of the tabs and slots is the same that the thickness of your material. The flexible part will be fine with 1/8 inch.
    Good luck and please, post your final result, i’m curious :-)
