Hi everyone,


I am only experienced in flat sheet work.  My wife does paper crafting and wanted to know if i could design some box templates for her.  What I ultimately want are 3 flattened pieces with the bend lines (this will be done in paper).  What i am envisioning is both faces and the bottom in one piece and 2 end caps that will be shaped to follow the profile.  On the end caps, i want to add small 90 degree  flanges along the profile,  that will be used to glue the caps to the main box.


I was able to delete faces and flatten the front bottom and back, but was unable to do anything to the caps.  I don't know if I am going in the right direction or not


If someone wouldn't mind doing a little tutorial on the best and fastest way to do this, I would be greatly appreciative.  I have attached the file that has been shelled.



Thank you very much in advance
