Finally getting into joinery, I also did most of the designs myself.

Very nice, I also really like the last tree. Did you inlay?

No, I had a thick mulberry paper that I lined the cutouts with.

I like the leaves … and the mountains! Very nice!

These look great! Do you have a file for the box with no cut outs? If so can you provide a link? Thanks.

Search for box generator or tabbed box generator. There are a lot of options out there. Normally I’d link to a couple of threads, but there are so many I’ll just paste in the link to the search.

There are two basic varieties of box generator, a plug-in for your design software of choice (Inkscape, AI, a 3D program, etc…) or an online one.

Thanks! Excited to try this. :smiley:

What type of paper are you using on the inside. I’ve been building a few lantern boxes myself and am wondering what people use the most for the paper inside.
