Sometimes we measure twice, cut once and we (meaning I ) screw up the cut out on the box for the neck on a really nice box. Well, your worries are over my friends. Carefully fix the opening-I use glue mixed with sawdust to fill in small errors and then I cut some trim from the inside of the box and add to the neck opening for a nice finished look! In this case I cut correctly, but tore the paper along the edge. This makes for a nice finished look - and it's free!

Great idea Wade, looks nice too.

Nice touch. Sometimes our screw-ups lead to ideas that carry over into our non-screw-ups.
