Fish Box

Our Guest Instructor is Diana Crick


· Scor-Pal:

· Cardstock or Decorator paper 6" x 9". The box stands 4 1/2” tall.

·Scor-Tape™ - double sided adhesive tape sold in the online store. (Awesome stuff)


Step 1:

Paper oriented as illustrated score at 6”, 7 1/2”, 9” and 10 1/2”.

Step 2:

Paper oriented as illustrated, align left edge with the 1 1/2” mark. Score at 3”.

Step 3:

Turn paper 90 degrees. Paper oriented as illustrated, previous score lines are not shown in the diagram. Score at 10 1/2”

Step 4:

Cut on the red lines as illustrated. You are creating the tabs for the bottom of the box







Step 5:

Sections 2,3,4,5, form the box. Section 1 and 6 are folded back to form the fin. Looking down on the box shape you will see why I called this a “Tropical Fish Box”.

Step 6:

If you wish to add decorator paper panels glue them first while your paper is flat. Form your box and flaps. Glue Panel 1 and 6 together. With Scor-Tape™.

Tuck in the bottom tabs to form the bottom of the box. Glue the last tab folded in.
