Looking for pattern for making boxes

Post by Helen » Wed, 13 Dec 2000 14:06:10



I'm looking for a pattern to make the boxes that look like a tube that's
been partially flattened. The ends are folded over to close the box
(container might be a better word). They are usually for holding small
items, but can be made any size, I guess. Our church has a craft sale every
December, and I thought these boxes might be popular if buyers want to give
the items they purchase as a gift. I would make boxes in several sizes to
accommodate the items I make. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks for giving me that great site. Lots of wonderful things, but not the
container/box I'm looking for. Wish I knew what these things are called.
That would be a great help, I'm sure.

Helene, on my personal template it is called a tubular gift box.  I found
one by searching Google that should work for you.  It has a printable
template too.   : http://www.paperzone.com/cornerbox4.htm

Good luck at your church sale.

Oh - I know these as "pillow boxes!"

Try a Web search for that phrase. It turns up quite a few, including
some cute printable ones at

Tina, thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. Folding on the curve
looks like the only tricky part, but it looks like they should go together
quickly. I also enjoyed looking over your website.

This page has a printable template for a "puffy box":

I found it through a search on google.com for "box templates," and "box
patterns."

I'm glad it was what you were looking for!  I just wanted to clarify; that
is not my site.  My site is still a vision in my head that is slowly
emerging.  I'll let you know when it is concrete.  :)

Thanks everyone for all the assistance in finding my pattern. In addition to
finding the pattern I needed I found other great ideas at the sites I
checked out. I'm usually a good searcher, but I definitely didn't use the
right key words this time. I appreciate all the help.
