Since I received such positive feedback about my pencil tutorial, I was anxious to post another project. I made this Amazon.com shipping box template (.pdf) using Inkscape, a graphic design program. To make the boxes:
1. Print out on thick brown paper (I use card stock).
2. Cut on the orange lines, and fold on the black lines.
3. Glue the tab to inside the box.
4. Fold both ends just like a regular box.
Even if I seal the box completely, I still stuff it with tissue paper to give it some body. I also print out (on regular paper) some little shipping labels and a bar code to stick on the boxes. To make the packaging tape, I cut tiny strips of plain masking tape. Hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful end of 2012!
