Påse

Example of Bag

A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat. This template can be used to create both a slick little goodie bag or a large grocery bag. This design is also used a lot for gift wrapping wine bottles. The top of the bag is folded for reinforcement.

Låda med lock

Example of Box with lid

Print template for box with lid, for example a shoe box or a board game box. Length, Width and Height are all inner dimensions.

Tårtbitslåda

Example of Cake Slice Box

A piece of cake. Quite literally. A wedge-shaped box that can be used to store pieces of cake. The box consists of an downper and a lower part. The downper 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.

Kortlåda

Example of Card Box

The most common box. A long, thin, box. The default dimensions are fine for a set of standard, European, playing cards (“bridge size”).

Kista

Example of Coffin

Coffin or Casket shaped box for Halloween, decoration or maybe for a deceased pet. Do you want to serve your ‘trick or treat candy‘ in style? Present the candy in a coffin! This design consists of a box and a lid. Use some extra scotch tape to secure the lid to box, or it might open at midnight… allowing the content to wander around your house. Mwhahahaha!

Kon

Example of Cone (truncated)

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.

Skyltningslåda

Example of Counter Display

Or ‘open storage bin’. Open, cut-away box for storing and displaying items. This design is well suited for storing cards and for sorting small items.

Cylinder med gerade kanter

Example of Cylinder with mitered ends

Tube, pipe, cylinder or toilet roll core. Optionally ‘mitered’, which means it is truncated at an angle. With default settings, this template gives a standard toilet roll. You can also choose to have a ‘mitered’ cylinder, with different miter-angles for the top and the bottom and with a twist between these two. Use these settings if you need to create tubes that are welded (or glued) together at an angle.

Elliptisk låda

Example of Elliptical Box

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 top pieces and 2 bottom pieces. You can disregard of each. The jig will need to be folded into a fork shape.

Kuvert

Example of Envelope

Classical letter envelope, most often used for personal letters.

Titt-låda

Example of Exploding Box

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.

Gem Stone Box

Example of Gem Stone Box

Gem stone shaped box, consisting of two identical polygonal pyramids, glued together at their bases. It‘s a real box that can used for packaging. It can be stored (and shipped)completely flat. When you pull the two apices (‘tops’) apart, the box will get it‘s full shape. It‘s easiest to glue this shape when both halves are flat. Just fold the glue tabs all the way in an glue the top to the bottom. Just remember not to glue the rounded flaps.

Presentask

Example of Gift Box

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.

Postpaket

Example of Mailer

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.

Tändsticksask

Example of Match Box

A simple Tray and Sleeve Box. The dimensions are inner dimensions. The clearance is added twice and to both the height and width. The tray can be assembled without glue, although a little glue won‘t hurt, of course.

Tetrapack

Example of Milk Carton

Tube-shaped box with a gusseted opening. This model will not be water tight if you make it at home, though!

Låda från flera ark

Example of Multi Sheet Box

How annoying that a sheet the size of an A4 or a 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 glue but you can make a much more impressive box! Use some sturdy material. You might use scavange some old cereals boxes or pizza boxes. Be aware that your desktop printer might need some ”convincing” to accept these.

Prallellepiped

Example of Parallelepiped

A three-dimensional figure formed by six parallelograms. This model can also be used to create a simple brick shape or a dice (cube). In that case, keep the angles at 90º.

Passpartout

Example of Passepartout

Passepartout, Photo Frame or Shadow Box. Glue-less, hollow, double-walled tray. Create a photo frame for your photo‘s with a posh, wide and deep frame. Enter the dimension of the “inner space“ (the size of the picture or object to display), together with how thick and wide you‘d like the border of the frame to be. The eventual model will be larger, because of the width of border of the frame. The model can be constructed without using glue, although a bit of glue won‘t hurt.

Glasögonlåda

Example of Pillow Pack

A simple, economic yet charming shape for packing items like vouchers, jewelry or clothing. Do not make the pillow pack too thick, or the paper will tear when you fold the ends﹕ keep the width at least twice as long as the height. Once folded, the width and length will be slightly smaller then the values you entered because of the curvature of the cardboard.

Månghörnig låda

Example of Polygonal Box

Tube-shaped (or prismatic), polygonal box with gusseted, integrated lid. This box is very decorative and ideal for gift wrapping odd-shaped presents. The lid uses both mountain and valleys folds. The glue tabs on the bottom fit together precisly. The lid will fold easier if you remove some material from the place where the five fold lines meet. (The model does not work for 3 or less sides)

Månghörning Pyramid

Example of Polygonal Pyramid

A pyramid shape with custom height and a regular polygon as base.

Månghörnig låda med lock

Example of Polygonal Shaped Box with Lid

This is a prismatic box with a regular polygon as a base. The dimensions determine the geometry of the base. The clearance determines how much the lid is scaled.

Pyramidformad låda

Example of Pyramid-shaped box

A box in the shape of a pyramid. The base of the shapes functions as the lid, so to open it, you would hold it downside up. (The default values yield a pyramid in the same ratio as the Cheops pyramid)

Rombisk låda med lock

Example of Rhombus Shaped Box with Lid

Rhombus (lozenge, or lop sided), prismatic box with lid. The box consist of a base and a lid. The dimensions are given for the base. The lid will be scaled with the given percentage (clearance).

Hattlåda med lock

Example of Round box

A round, cylindrical 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 top pieces and 2 bottom pieces. You can disregard of each. The jig will need to be folded into a fork shape.

Somakub

Example of Soma Cube

Collection of the 7 concave polycubes with 4 or less cubes. These seven pieces together can form the SOMA cube. That is, if you manage to solve the puzzle. The SOMA cube was invented by the Danish mathematician and poet Piet Hein.

Sfär

Example of Sphere

The template creates a single segment to create a sphere. You need to print a copy of this template for every segment. (They are all identical) When assembled, together they create a sphere or a globe.

Stjärnform

Example of Star Shape

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 the former: use a large height, large inner radius and a low amount of points. The given parameters will work for this.

Stjärnformat låda

Example of Star Shaped Box

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 the ideal number of points, but fewer or more is certainly possible. Shine!

Platonska kroppar

Example of The Platonic Solids

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. Also the other platonic solids are named after the number of faces (or hedra) they have. I.e. Tetrahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron. (Now you know how to count in classical Greek, too!) 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.

Parallelltrapetslåda

Example of Trapezoid Box

Also called a trapezoidal prism or a trapezoidagon (just to sound impressive). One typical use for this model is packing pralines. It can be the basis for many shapes, as long as the top and bottom are paralel and oposing sides have equal draft angles. If you use yellow or gold paper, you can use it to make paper ‘gold bars’. (Or gold pressed latinum, if you prefer.)

Tråginsats

Example of Tray Insert

Box insert for thin items. Use this template to create a box insert that locks an item safely in the center of a box. It leaves some extra space for a thumb hole, so it’s easy to retrieve it.
