Paper Lamp Box Design

Step 1

The theme of the tutorial will be a box design for a paper lamp. You can use any picture with a lamp, I picked this one.

Open a new document 400×400 pixel with white background. Now go to View->Show->Grid. This will help you to keep the proportions right.

Step 2

Make a new layer Layer->New Layer. Select the Polygonal Lasso Tool and draw a shape just like in the image below.

Fill the shape with black and go to View->Show->Grid to deselect the grid.

Step 3

This part is a bit tricky. Make sure the image with lamp, or the image you choose it’s open. Be sure the last layer created is selected and drag the image in the box. No go to Edit->Transform->Warp.
