Make a Corrugated Box?

First of all, you have to start with the opening of the tabs on the base and top of the box. You need to unfold the tabs or cut them up with the help of box cutter.

You have to unfold the tabs by using tape. Put down the side of the box and then ct one of its corners from top to the bottom. In this way, you could easily unfold the corrugated just the once to end up with a straight piece of it.
Put that straight piece on the floor or table and then place the item on it where the half width of the item would be equal to space amid the edges of corrugated and item.


From the top to the bottom you have to cut very lightly with the sharp box cutter. You will be drawing a cut line into the corrugated at the space of the edge of the item that meets corrugated.

You have to mark lines with the blade that would cut the top surface of the corrugated. In the same way, make another cutting line on the next side of the item.

Now roll the item on its side so that the one side is on the previous cutting line. Create another parallel cutting line of 90 degrees then again make a parallel cut line of 180 degrees.

You have to leave the half width of the item and then cut the remaining corrugated piece that is extra from bottom to the top.


You have to push the item towards the bottom or top of the corrugated. In this way, you could cut it down to the size. You must not press the item to the exact edge. You might require leaving half width of the item’s side as extra corrugated that would be able to fold over on the side of the item.

You have to leave the extra corrugated on the opposite side and then start cutting the rest of the excess corrugated entirely.

You need to take off the corrugated and flip over it onto the next side. Folding over the cutting lines and see how ideally it bends and makes the 4 corners of the box.

You have to put the item in the box and then fold it up. When you fix up the sides, then use tape. It is quite easy to tape up the box now where the edges meet from the top to the bottom.

You have to look at one of the 2 open sides of the box, items side and excess of corrugated hanging over. This all would be folded up to create the side of the box.


Just start folding it and put tape on it. Your own handmade corrugated box would be ready.

By following up the same method, you can create your own corrugated box printing. However, you just need to get printed corrugated.
