Looking for a gift box for those tiny baby clothes? Or maybe you just need 1 box and all you can find is 1/2 of a box? No problem, in just two minutes you can take that odd gift box bottom and turn it into 1 half sized gift box. Great for gifting tee shirts, socks, baby and kids outfits.....etc
Here is what you will need:
1 piece of cardboard
1/2 of a shirt box
Take scrap piece of card board and cut a strip the same width as your shirt box sides.
Fold Template in half to make a crease.
(keep this for future use as most shirt boxes have the same measurements)
With sides of box still collapsed fold in half to make a crease and open.
Take template and place over box matching up the crease in template to the crease you made on your box. Trace a straight line on both sides of the template.
Do this on both sides.
You will now have traced four lines, two on each side of your box. Take your scissor and cut on each line to form two tabs.
With tabs folded outwards, fold the box as pictured on both sides.
Choose which side will be the top and refold this time going backwards.
Now take your box and open it up. Take the two tabs and fold them inwards, then tape into place to the bottom of the sides of the box.
Your almost done......Insert your gift and fold down the top.
You should now have a perfect fit!
