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:)
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''. I was too lazy to glue the flaps: #10 staples used here:
They will make great Halloween Treat Boxes too!

A little tip for a professional looking crisp fold: Pre-score all the fold lines, using a scoring tool or back of your craft knife. :)
