What You’ll Need:
This guide that we are going to show you will help you finish up an accurate 4 by 2 inch gable box. It will be 4 inches long and 2 inches wide with a deep enough tray for many of your small to medium sized products. You will need these materials and tools:
- Thin yet sturdy cardstock or paperboard material sheet
- A ruler for precise markings and drawings
- X-Acto Knife or pair of scissors for cutting
- A bone folder to fold all lines and sides
- Strong lasting glue. If you need this gable box for food products, make sure to get food safe glue
You will also need to download This Template and have it ready for printing on the cardstock or paperboard sheet.
How It’s Made:
- Starting the process off, you will first need to get that template printed on your cardstock materials. Use the pair of scissors or your X-Acto knife to cut out on the solid lines of the printed template
- Remove all the access piece of materials leaving out only the gable box piece on a flat surface
- You will find dashed lines on the printed and cut template. Use the bone folder to score all these dashed lines and also fold them over themselves creating creases
- Now, you will need to glue together the tab on the side of this box. This will close 4 walls together. Make sure to use the right glue for your selected piece of material in the right amount. Too much glue will create smudges and too less glue will make the box come apart. The glue will be applied on the non-dotted side of the tab. Also ensure to glue the tab to the inside of the opposing wall. This will hide away all the glue once you have assembled the box completely only showing the nice clean outside at all times
- You will find a 45 degree dashed line at the bottom of the box that will be sticking out. You will need to glue on the right side of that line making it cover the tab perfectly
- Now, you will need to turn and tilt the box a bit and find the larger flap on its bottom side. Take the other glued tab to which you just applied the glue and stick the larger flap and this tab together
- Proceed with the same routine with all the remaining tabs on the bottom side of the box
- Once you have glued up the base of your box, your will need to push the two corners of the base inside the box. Doing this, you should now start to see 45-degree creases at each corner of your box. If these creases are missing, develop them with fingers. Another clue to find out if you are doing it right is that the 4 walls of the entire box should threaten to flatten up
- You will need to get the box flat at this point in a way that all the bottom side is also folded in and not out of the box. To make your custom White Gable Boxes more durable and precise, use the bone folder to press down on the folded sides
- This sharpening for your box will result in a much neater finish that looks professional as well. While your box is still collapsed, bring it back into shape. As you try to bring the box back into shape, its base should place itself naturally in a correct position. Feels great right!
- Having corrected the bottom of your custom box, it is now time to move towards the top. There should be two opposing handle tabs on the topside. One is the small nub sticking out of the handle shape and the other is the rounded tab that has a slit in it and is sticking out of one side of your box. Bring these two tabs together until they are touching comfortably. The little nub is to be inserted in that slit completing one of the sides. Do the same with the other side to complete the box assembly.
This process of making your custom Gable Boxes is pretty simple once you have the template and know all of the steps required. Wrap the material’s outside with a gold foil and your will get proper nice Gold Gable Boxes. Select black colored paper or cardstock and your Black Gable Boxes should look pretty amazing. Once you get comfortable with these, you can expand their sizes up as well. Pack your lunch in them and take away to work or place your gifts for those loved ones.
