Paper Lunch Box Tutorial - Free Template Download

I'm so lucky to not only be the sponsor this week at Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog but I am also the Guest Designer for the Week! Thank you, Kristine, for this opportunity!

Per my other post showing the detailed photo's of the completed Sea Turtle Digi Lunch Box here is the tutorial on how I made it. You can download the template for this Paper Lunch Box for FREE at McMahon Five Designs webstore HERE.

I sized the template to fill up the whole page in a Word Document and printed it on card stock.

I cut just inside the dark printed lines to cut them off. Don't worry about the score lines. You have several options:

  1. Line the inside of your box with coordinating cardstock.

  2. Fold your box so the dark lines are on the outside and then 'distress' those dark lines with dark ink and they will not show! :)

I simply used a ruler and a bone folder to score on the score lines.

I folded on the fold lines.

Glue it all together with your favorite glue or adhesive.

Done! :) Easy Peasy! Give it a try! Send me your little lunch boxes and I will add them to the store gallery for all to see!
