Make Your Leftovers this Holiday Season Memorable!

Hey Everyone guess what?!

FREE ON FRIDAY IS BACK!  This week we have a super idea for the season.  With all the holiday meals and baking coming up over the next several weeks, MyMemories has the perfect craftable to help you get rid of those left overs!

You know you'll have them and you know your guests will want to take some home!  Don't lose a dish or spend $$ on something cheap - make it memorable with these adorable take out boxes!





They are so easy to make and will definitely make your leftovers memorable!  See the tutorial on how to make them below and click the link on the sidebar to download your free kit!





Take Out Box Tutorial

1. Print your file on cardstock. Gather necessary supplies.
(Recommended supplies: ruler, scissors, glue, bone folder with pointed tip, stapler, craft knife)
Be sure to set your margins as close to 0 as possible.



2. Using the bone folder score the box on all fold lines. From each corner of the
center rectangle, make 3 score lines: one to the middle dashed line, and one to each inside corner.
Also, score around the center rectangle and the top edge.



3. There should be a total of 20 scores when you are done.
See the picture below for a diagram of all score lines. Score lines are traced in black.



4. Cut out your box.



5. Turn your box over so that the printed side is down and fold in the top tabs.



6. Starting on one corner, find the center score line and fold the paper
from the bottom corner up.



7. Keeping the center fold together, fold the triangular piece you have just created
over to one side and then the other.



8. Pinch the bottom rectangular ends to form a 90 degree angle.



9. Repeat steps 6-8 for each of the four corners and bottom edges of the box.




10. Turn your box over so that the printed side is down and apply glue to the
triangle shaped pieces formed by your folds. There should be a total of 8, 2 at each corner



11. Pinch the triangle shaped pieces together, to form the corners of the box.



12. Fold the newly formed triangle pieces towards the smaller edges of the box.
The edges should overlap, and staple in place.



13. Using the craft knife, cut the slit on the top flap.



14. Fold the top flap in and secure the hook in the opening to keep the box closed.

  6. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  7. Everything published was actually very reasonable.
    But, think about this, suppose you were to write a killer post title?
    I ain't saying your content isn't good., but suppose you
    added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "Make Your Leftovers this Holiday Season Memorable!" is a little boring.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
