Bag

Explanation of the geometry for the BAG template

A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat. This template can be used to create for example a slick little goodie bag or a large grocary bag. This design is also used a lot for gift wrapping wine bottles. The template has 16 holes, that correspond to 4 holes in the model. These can be used to put a cord through. The top of the bag is folded for reinforcement.

Box with lid

Explanation of the geometry for the BOX WITH LID template

Print template for box with lid, for example a shoebox or a board game box. Length, Width and Height are all inner dimensions. This template is economical for rather shallow boxes. If the box is tall, use the card box instead.

Cake Slice Box

Explanation of the geometry for the CAKE SLICE BOX template

A piece of cake. Quite literally. A wedge-shaped box that can be used to store pieces of cake. The box consists of an upper and a lower part. The upper part is the cover. The lower part, the tray, does not need glue because it will be locked by the cover. By default, the cover is 5% larger then the tray but this can be adjusted in the expert settings. The angle is a measure for how big a piece of cake can fit in. Look in the figure if you don‘t know what to enter here. For example, an angle of 30º is large enough for 1 piece from a 12-piece cake. The length is the length of the piece, which should be about half the diameter of the complete cake. But, be sure to add quite some allowance here.

Truncated cone

Explanation of the geometry for the TRUNCATED CONE template

A cone, optionally with the top cut off. (In that case, it’s called a frustum). Can be used to help create the geometry for a beaker, vase, party-hat or lamp shade. If you'd like a real cone, just use zero for the top-diameter. Tip: do not score or fold the fold line this template to keep seam smooth.

Elliptical box

Explanation of the geometry for the ELLIPTICAL BOX template

An elliptical or oval box. The template consists of 4 parts and comes with a paper jig that can be used to assemble the box in a neat way. The top and bottom parts are duplicated in the template. When they are cut out you are left with the jig plus 2 tops and 2 bottoms. You can destroy the spare top and bottom. The jig will need to be folded, as shown in the diagram.

Exploding Box

Explanation of the geometry for the EXPLODING BOX template

A box consisting of a tray and a lid. The sides of the tray are not glued, but kept together by the lid. Once the lid is removed, the box ‘explodes’ as the sides fall outward.

Gift Box

Explanation of the geometry for the GIFT BOX template

A typical, straight-forward gift box. This box is very similar to the Card Box, but the layout is different. This template makes most efficient use of your sheet of paper if the dimensions are close to eachother. Templatemaker will try to correct impossible values automatically. Be aware of this if, for example, the thumbhole is smaller then you expect.

Mailer

Explanation of the geometry for the MAILER template

The mailer is an extra thick envelop that can be used to pack items that are flat, but thicker then just a sheet of paper. It can hold, for example, a pile of cards of a bag of flower seeds. Use a piece of sticky tape to keep the cover in place.

Multi Sheet Box

Explanation of the geometry for the MULTI SHEET BOX template

How annoying that a sheet the size of an A4 or an Letter is so small, isn‘t it? This template allows you to construct much larger boxes by using 6 separate sheets. It takes a bit more gluing but you can make a much more impressive box. Use some sturdy material. You might use scavange some old cereals boxes or pizza boxes. Your printer might need some ”convincing” though to accept these.

Pillow Pack

Explanation of the geometry for the PILLOW PACK template

A simple, economic yet charming shape for packing items like vouchers, jewelry or clothing. Keep the width at least twice as long as the height. Once folded, the widht and length will be slightly smaller then the values entered because of the curves of the cardboard.

The Platonic Solids

Explanation of the geometry for the THE PLATONIC SOLIDS template

All five so-called Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are the five regular convex polyhedra. The Cube is the most famous one, of course, although he likes to be called “hexahedron” among friends. There is only parameter:the diameter of the midsphere. The midsphere is the sphere from the center of the object that touches all the edges exactly in middle.

Star Shape

Explanation of the geometry for the STAR SHAPE template

Star-shape with arbitrary thickness and number of points. Depending on the dimensions, you'll either get one pyramid-like shape for every point of the star, or flatters (pancake-like shapes) for either side of the star. The latter is the quickest and easiest way, but thin stars with long points look the best. To obtain this one: use a large height, large inner radius and a low amount of points. The given parameters will work for this.

Star Shaped Box

Explanation of the geometry for the STAR SHAPED BOX template

Have you ever dreamed of just sprinkling stars? ✨Now you can, and you can even hide a present in them! The folds are a bit origami-like, score them well and make sure the star is reasonably thick. “5“ Is indeed the ideal number of points, but fewer or more is certainly possible. Shine!
