This is my pillow box template. I drew a rectangle (16m by 23cm) then curved the edges using a bowl. The tab at the side is 1 1/2 cm. Simple!
Get some paper/card big enough for your template.
Draw a line down the middle!
Use your template as a guide for the curves instead of digging out the bowls again!
Cut it out!
Score along the straight lines with a ruler and scissors or knife. Don't press too hard!
Scoring makes a nice, neat crease and its easier to fold!
You'll have to freehand the curves!
Using glue or tape, glue the tab!
Wait for it to dry a bit :)
Get some stuff to decorate your box
Fold in one end
Ta-da! Now fill it with whatever, fold the other sides (but don't glue them!) add decorations and you're done!
This is mine, all finished! :)
Some others that I made :)
