Halloween is only a month away! My friends and I are planning on dressing up as different fast food characters. I am going to be Panda Express and hence I thought I’d use this assignment to complete part of my costume.
Instead of using existing Chinese take-out box template online, I was being overly ambitious and decided to customize one. It took me a really long time to figure out the measurements for the sides the box as well as the top closure (it didn’t turn out perfect but I was at least able to close the box).
I made a few prototypes to better visualize if different parts of my sketch matches with each other as well as testing out the measurements.
Moving on, I created my sketch in Illustrator with Panda Express’ logo on both sides of the box.
On to the laser cutter!
The logos were nicely etched onto the paper.
I then used a tool (don’t remember the name of it) to trance out the bending line before assembling the box.
Here comes the box!
I also made a pair of chopsticks with my Instagram account on it.
I then thought that opening up an empty take-out box would be quite upsetting and hence I made noodles with yellow and orange felt.
And…. here’s the complete Panda Express take-out experience!
