Assembly Instructions

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Filament pieces
  • Side pieces, bottom, and top of the crate from the kit card
  • Cutting tool for trimming filament

Step 1: Assemble the Sides

  • Take the two side pieces and position them so that the holes for the hinge pins line up.
  • Thread a piece of filament through the aligned holes of both side pieces to form the hinge.
  • Trim the excess filament from both ends to ensure it does not protrude from the sides. Be careful to cut it flush with the edge of the crate sides. Repeat this process for both sets of side pieces.

Step 2: Attach Sides to Bottom and Top

  • Align the bottom piece's hinge slots with the filament hinges you've just created on the side pieces.
  • Carefully insert the filament through the side pieces and into the bottom piece to connect them. Trim excess filament as before.
  • Attach the top piece to the opposite ends of the side pieces using the same filament method.


Step 3: Secure the Side Pieces

  • Finally, attach the remaining side pieces to complete the crate.
  • Use the filament pieces to hinge these at the corners where they meet the already attached sides.
  • Once all sides are in place and the filament is trimmed, your crate should be able to fold and unfold freely.

Your miniature folding crate is now ready to use! It should neatly fold and unfold, providing a cute and practical storage option for small items. Enjoy your new, hand-assembled crate!
