For the next couple of posts we will discuss some aspect of it and why I have chosen that particular combination to weld. I will include screen shots of the weld (from DS) explaining my reasoning. Please do post questions in the comment and I'll put it up in the blog. By the end of this session I want you guys to say "Where there is a will there is a weld "
Here are the pictures
My experience with the box. Do not use too sturdy cardstock - the cardstock needs a certain give for the top to slide together it needs a little flexibility. Use trial version first before cutting it in . Align the first score marks It's across all the way (will be the bottom of the box - it's the one which has 3 of the 4 shapes different) through as shown in the pic. Use the two - what shall I call it - pincers, bull horns :) as guide for scoring.
I originally used gypsy wanderings but for the centre rectangle mine looks so distorted (and cuts that way too) that I could not place the rest of the shapes. So after doing in Gypsy W, I then used george for the 10 x 2.5 (actual size) unlinked rectangle. Yu can use gypsy or plantin for this. Just select that delete and then put the rectangle in and remember to group back and preview. Always preview and take time to view both in 100% and zoomed.
After scoring the bottom, sides and tab, turn over and apply atg gun or red tape to the tab (it needs to be pretty sturdy else it'll come out when sliding the top (Try out in trial version first please - You'll then see why I'm stressing this and a little pliable and not too thick cardstock ).
then use the figure as guide if you want to do the bottom my way else try your way. Do not glue it yet. Slide in the triangular flaps and then the circular flaps carefully. Too rough handling then the paper will tear. After all it's paper. Lastly glue the bottom.
This was a welding experiment so please try it out before wasting good paper.
