This is almost a difficult blog post to write, in terms of ‘instructions’ on how to make the box, because it really requires a visual tutorial. What a good job I made a video then!
It really does put our scoring tool and the metric plate through it’s paces, but (sound the trumpets here!) after a lot, and I mean a LOT of prototypes, measuring, cutting and folding, I came up with a way to make a cake slice box but without the need for a computerized die cutting machine or a pdf template your draw around.
I’m really quite proud of myself, and between myself and Cathy, who’d requested the box, we had trawled every bit of the internet to try and find a non-template non-computer die cutter cake slice box, and couldn’t find one.
So I very proudly present the Cake Slice Box in video format! But I also include below a picture of my template for you to enlarge in comparison so that you know where to cut!
Awfully sorry, no measurements in here today, because it’s a bit of backwards and forwardsing (it’s a word…!) with the cardstock, but the video really is easy to follow. And if you’re in work, shhhh, turn the volume down!
