UPDATE 21/Sep/2011: I refined the template. Do remember to choose "Fit to Page" in printer settings :) Enjoy! UPDATE: I went a little crazy and made this pile: Printed on 6x6 pattern paper (chose 4''x6'' size in printer settings) Now only need to find time to decorate them:) Tiny Takeout Boxes I scanned a real takeout box and made this template today. The original size is 10''x10''  before folding. This template is for Letter sized paper so most home printers can print. Finished size: 2.5'' x 2.5'' x 1.75''.
