  • Open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat Reader

Step 2 - Personalize it

Fill out the Nutrition Facts panel with some positive qualities to describe yourself. For example, Creative 40%, Adventurous 25%, Friendly 15%, Cheeky 10% and Quirky 10%.  You're an original so you want your carton to be too.

Step 4 - Cut and Score

Use scissors and cut along the Cut Lines marked on the template. Take your time and keep your hand steady.

Use a ruler and score the Dotted Fold Lines. This will make it easier to fold the paper and give it a professional finished look. Make sure to score all the dotted lines inclueding the diagonal ones at the top.

How to Score Paper:

  • Grab a butter knife and a ruler
  • Press the ruler down firmly at the place you want to fold
  • Then take the non-cutting edge of the butter knife and draw a line, staying right next to the ruler (don't press too hard)
  • TIP: Instead of a butter knife you could also try a crochet hook or the end of a pen cap

Step 5 - Fold and Glue

Once you've scored along all the dotted fold lines now it's time to fold and glue.

  • Fold the paper along all the pre-scored dotted fold lines
  • TIP: Use a glue stick or double sided tape
  • Put glue on Glue Area A
  • Fold the paper inwards until you make a box
  • Fold in the two bottom small flaps
  • Put glue on Glue Area B
  • Fold in and then the final bottom flap
  • The top folds are a little tricky but the scoring you did earlier will help make it easier to do. Carefully fold paper inwards and pinch as you go - watching the video demo below will help
  • Finally glue or tape the top closed and voilà! You did it!
