My happy accident!
When I was developing the 3×3 hinged box a week or so back, I was folding the multiple score lines quite absent mindedly, and suddenly found myself holding a pentagonal box! Wow, what a light bulb moment!
It did take some adaptation to make the box fold properly, and it took quite a long time to work the sides so that they’d fold up attractively, and still be able to open the box properly. In fact, I ended up with at least a dozen prototypes in the bin before I was happy.
This was a real labour of love, and I’m really proud of the creation, I hope you like it too!
The measurements are ridiculously easy to remember, you can’t possibly forget them!
Cardstock – 10.5 x 8″
Score along length at 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10″
Score along short side at 2 and 6″
DSP measures 1.75 x 3.75″
Cardstock – 26.5 x 20cm
Score along length at 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25
Score along short side at 5 and 15
DSP 4.5 x 9.5cm
It appears to be complicated, it really isn’t. But do stop and rewatch the video to properly see how to do this!
