You will need a piece of DSP that measures 8 3/4" X 9". You will need a pencil (or pen) and a ruler to mark up the back side of the paper. When you are done measuring and marking it up, it will look like this:With the 9" across the top, from the left edge, mark your paper at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 6 3/4" and 7 1/4". Draw the lines from top to bottom.
Turn the paper and now with the 8 3/4" across the top, mark your paper at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 6 3/4" and 7". Draw the lines from the top to the bottom.
For the window in the middle, with the 9" side on the top, I measured 3/4" from the second line on the top and 3/4" from the first line on the bottom.
Close shot of me cutting out the pieces.Showing some progress here!This is what your paper should look like when you are done cutting off the narked area. You will now need to cut out the window in the middle. I cut out the window using my Fiskars paper cutter. I love using the blade because you can get a pretty perfect cut using the cutter rather than free hand cutting (I don't cut very straight).
You are ready to wrap your box with the paper. Place your shaker box in the middle of your paper and do a test wrapping around your shaker box. Make any adjustments, if needed. If it fits good, add double stick tape on the paper so you can wrap around the box.
