Trinket box Template

Trinket box template 

For those of you who wanted to give this project a try, here are my roughly made up templates. What I do to make a template is just work out my basic shape, ie the rectangle, then add two ruler widths to the sides.
Then work out a good place to position tabs and go from there. I like to have a folded side, so the edge of you box is not a raw cut edge, but a folded edge.
This stops tearing and sagging. Just copy templates and print out A4 size ( or increase in size until  shape fits comfortably on an A4 sheet) 
It is also a good idea to do one in scrap paper first.
