Trapezoid Box Template


Note: Please make sure your printing margins are set to .5 inches (half an inch) or the template may not print completely. In your browser's Menu bar,  select File > Page Setup, and change the margin settings to .5. (The selections may be slightly different between browsers.)

The finished box measures 3 x 2 x 1.5.

  1. Print and trace the template onto card stock. (I simply printed the template onto card stock using my printer.)

  2. Cut out and decorate with stamps and inks, as desired. (I used a sponge to apply Galaxy Gold and Pearlescent Jade Brilliance pads onto the card stock. I then stamped with Graphite Black using two stamps I hand carved.)

  3. Punch holes where indicated. 

  4. Fold on dotted lines. 

  5. Glue side and bottom. 

  6. Fold top flaps over. 

  7. Tie ribbon through holes. (I used two pieces of turquoise organdy ribbon.)

  8. Fill with candy. (Hershey's Kisses or Jordan Almonds would be ideal.)

Use this box to give a Valentine to that special someone, or decorate it for a shower, wedding, or anniversary.
