When u carpet a box do u cut the carpet into each piece or do u carpet the whole box at one time?

EX: Front ----> carpet for da front
Top---->carpet for da top
Side -----> carpet for da sides

you wrap it like a present adhereing one side at a time. Then you overlap the end to end and cut it between the middle of the overlap with a straight edge. THen you remove the underlaying piece and join the two matching pieces. then you do the same for the sides as you wrap it like a present.

Probably makes no sence until you see it done. someone give this guy a link.

you will need to carpet the whole box at one time. Start halfway from the back and then just go around till u reach the back again. then cut the sub hole perfectly and clean with a Xacto knife or a sharp razor blade.

basically just look at this tutorial here:
