Box Making Made Easy

ConsEncl_webWould you like to know how to make boxes but worry that they’re too complicated or that you don’t have the tools you need? This class will teach you to make three boxes that can be done quickly and easily at home with no specialized equipment past a ruler, a knife and a cutting surface. We’ll start by making a four-flap enclosure that is suitable for small, thin books. Then we’ll make a corrugated cardboard box with dividers that is suitable for holding dimensional objects like Christmas tree ornaments or your favorite collectibles. We’ll finish by making a corrugated clamshell box that will fit books with spines larger than 1” thick. Once you’ve taken this class, you’ll be making boxes for everything you own!
