Empty Tatebanko boxAbout Tatebanko - I have ten different projects that you can download, print and make right here. And I also have the blank box template so you can put inside any scene that you want to make.


About the paper used for this project.

It is a three dimensional project and normal printer paper is a bit weak for it. You can use it but I have some better ideas for you so it will be stronger.

If you have index paper or card stock paper put five sheets in your printer and print this project on that. Then you can go ahead and use that print out to make the project. Use a minimum of 90 pound paper. That is thick and sturdy enough.

If you don't have a choice when it comes to paper and all you have is printer paper that is ok! Print it up. Then cut out the pieces and glue stick them to manila file folder or poster board. Then it is strong enough for this project.
