For Best Results When Assembling Your Card Kit Shipping Containers.

Follow below : 

1. Use a sharp modelling or craft knife to score all the fold lines

and there is x 8 in total. This in turn will provide you with a nice, clean fold.

2. Use an undamaged ruler with a smooth straight edge

metal ones are better to use and can be purchased from your local hardware store.

3. Use double-sided sticky tape, a glue stick, or for even better results a white paper glue as this dries clear.

4. Glue one side at a time and wait for it to dry before moving on to the next side. This will stop you getting glue on the outside of the model.

5. Once dry, touch up any white edging with a coloured chalk.

If you follow the above Hints this will give you a nice sturdy, stackable container. Take a look at all our other new models that are added every week.
