Making beautiful cake boxes design at home is a lot easier than baking them. You can make them by using simple tools that include;

  • Cardboard 2 pieces in a square shape (the size can be varied but the shape should always be a square)
  • Scale 1 piece (preferably a large one made with steel)
  • Lead pencil 1 piece (properly sharped)
  • Scissors 1 piece

Step by step procedure

Base panel:

  • Place the square cardboard piece at a hard and dry surface.
  • Mark two diagonal lines (that make an X) on the piece to find its centre.
  • Take the corners of the paper and turn them towards the Center. Do it one by one and make sure you do not cross the Center point.
  • At the end of the folding, you will have a properly turned and shaped square.
  • Take one end of the folded square and fold it one more time towards the Center point. Make sure you pick the end from its Center not from the corner.
  • Repeat the same procedure to the rest of the three sides as well.
  • You will have a properly creased sheet of cardboard that you will use in further processing.
  • Open the folding and you will see a small and a medium-sized square at the Center of the paper.
  • Mark points at the corner spots of the medium square and joins them by drawing diagonal lines with the help of scale and lead pencil.
  • Take the scissors and cut the paper from the lines that you have drawn. Make sure that the cut is not too deep, it should just reach the small squares right next to the corners.
  • After the cutting, turn the pointy ends of the four panels towards the Center and the small flaps on their sides inwards.
  • Once you are done with folding the panels and flaps inwards, you will be able to see a nearly finished carton in front of you.
  • Use the flaps as locking tabs and the pointy ends as the base panel and join them together.
  • Your base panel is ready to use.

  • Similarly, fold the one end of the folded square and fold it one more time towards the Center point. Keep it slightly off the Center againComputer Technology Articles, about 1 to 1.5 cm off.
