Perhaps you’ve seen my Gift Box or the chart on Pinterest. It’s one of my most popular pins. But it can be confusing! I mean, I didn’t even put a title on the chart or add my email or website. My reader Chandra was totally confused by this footnote:
*1 Slide until corner of the square made by overlapping score lines is at any diagonal, then score to diagonal corner.
What? It made sense to me at the time but it’s gobbletygook even to me now. So I made a video trying to explain each footnote. They may just be more gobbletygook with lots of repeats.
Chandra, let me know if I’ve answered your question.

Thank you so much for the measurements sheet I will try to make some boxes Thanks Mary
You’re welcome Mary! I’d love to see photos of what you make.
as I said above I want to thank you for the explanation sheet ,it was very interesting watching the tutorial of how to make a box Thanks again Mary
I’m so glad the video was helpful.
Thanks for the additional measurements. Do you think it’s possible to create larger boxes with this punch board such as 5x5x4?
Your first obstacle for a 5″ x 5″ x 4″ box would be the card stock. A 4″ x 4″ x 4″ box requires 12″ x 12″ card stock. If you could use larger card stock, you wouldn’t have any markings for a 5″ wide box. The small start line makes a 1 3/4″ square bottom. The Medium makes a 2 1/2″ square bottom. Each larger size start line is 1/2″ from the last and gives you an extra 3/4″ size of box. I’m guessing you could start 1″ farther down from the XL start line for a 5 1/4″ square bottom. I’d have to experiment and contemplate further to figure out how large that card stock would need to be for a 4″ high box. You could certainly test it out with a piece of newsprint or wrapping paper and then try it with poster board.
Have you tried rectangle boxes using template studio
Are you talking about making a box with a rectangle base with the Gift Box Punch Board? I have not. I do use the Envelope Punch Board to make rectangle boxes. You can also make rectangle boxes with the Gift Bag Punch Board.
Hi, I am needing help with getting a box with the dimensions of 3.25 length x 2.25 width x 1.25 height in inches. This is what I need for my homemade soap bars.
The Gift Box Punch Board does square box bottoms. You will want to use the Envelope Punch Board for your rectangular boxes. I have a chart that shares how to change the card sizes into various heights for boxes, but (the Crafty Owl has a calculator that will figure out whatever size you need. That calculator says you need a 6 3/4″ square. The first punch will be at 2 7/8″ and the second at 4 5/8″ Then turn and punch at each crease on the other 3 sides.
