What you'll find attached are three items.
I find that assembling the box sucks. I hated this part when it came to Odball.
- Print on non-glossy A4 size card stock. Ink will not stick to glossy.
- If you have a mechanical cutter then cut as close to the black on all sides. If you don't have a slicer, then I suggest using a ruler with a sharp edge and an xacto knife.
- Use the ruler and xacto knife to to cut out the box and all of the tabs.
- Be sure to cut three mm on each side of the folding flaps (the rounded part), at the fold.
- Using the ruler, on the back side of the box, lightly drag the xacto knife over the areas were the folds will be.
- Fold the box.
- Apply a thin layer of glue to the white tab.
- Use the ruler to press firmly the tab to the inner box. Hold for 30 seconds.
- Let glue dry at least one minute.
- Fold tabs and cut away excess as needed so that it folds and fits properly.
- I usually like these printed on semi-glossy paper. But any A4 size will do.
- Be sure to fold it carefully. Maybe print more than one in case folding the first one gets messed up.
- The type of paper used for the overlays is vellum. Clear plastic type overlays don't display well. Vellum is cheap and can be purchased from any FedEx Office, Office Max, Staples, et cetera.
- Use an ink jet printer and set your print settings to a low color density so there's not too much ink so it won't smear.
- Cut out each square. I suggest using a slicer if possible.
