These are some cute little boxes i've made for little Christmas gifts to go inside. Very easy to make, and once you've got one template, just trace around it for more (saves measuring)!

May I ask for the dimensions of the outside triangles? On my first attempt, the triangles were too small and wouldn't span across the base, and for my second attempt, they were too big and left holes on the box Happy

i did try looking for a template on internet already (but there wasn't one)and taking a pic of the box flat-but that didn't work either. I might try drawing one on paint and see how it turns out!!

Is there any way you could scan in a template of the triangle shape?
