How to make gable box step by step

These boxes are durable and recyclable. Therefore they are also highly utilized in the FMCG industry. They serve as the best solution to store edible food items and keep them safe from getting contaminated and spoiled. Gable boxes are preferred for most of the products' packaging because they are quick to assemble, convenient, and easy to carry because of a rapid lock and unlock mechanism from the top side. Gable boxes are a very cost-effective solution for your every time packaging needs. They are easy to make in just simple steps. The material you need is paper or cardboard, ruler, scissors, craft knife, a strong adhesive and a gable box template for convenience. Below is a simple step by step procedure to make a gable box on your own:

Step 1: Download an online template of a gable box as shown in the image below. Cut the solid line which makes the box.

Step 2: Next step is to deal with dashed lines. Use a ruler to make them fold over themselves. A ruler will make neat creases which will form an elegant box with prominent edges.

Step 3: Glue the tab on the box side to close all the four walls together. Choose perfect glue for it which makes them stick together strongly. Ensure that glue should be applied to the non-dotted side of a tab and fix it to the inside of the opposite wall. This will not make it show once the box gets fully assembled. Bottom of the box has a 45 degree dashed line, place the glue on its right side to cover the tab.

Step 4: Now fold the large flap at the bottom and then hold the other tab to which glue has been already applied in the previous step. Stick both of them together. Repeat the steps with remaining bottom tabs as well. The primary structure of the box is obtained as shown in the figure below.

Step 5: As the base is glued up, pick up the two corners from the base and push them gently inside the box. You will start seeing a crease of 45 degrees at each corner of a box. If you are unable to see it, you can make it using your fingers. As you are doing so, the four walls of the box start to collapse until they become flat.

Step 6: Once the box becomes flat, scrape the bone folder down the base of the box. This will make the corners flat and sharper. The box base should naturally make its place at the correct position.

Step 7: Now it's the time to make the handles of the gable box. Take the handle tabs opposite to each other and pull them together until they start touching each other. Place the nub inside the slit. Repeat the step with the other side a well. You are done with the procedure, and your do-it-yourself gable box is ready to use. If you want to use it as a packaging to present a gift to someone, decorate it accordingly. Cover it with some fascinating people, use ribbons, and other decorative embellishments to make it look more attractive.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
