Altering an image to be printed around a box corner

I have a vector logo, essentially a donut shape, that needs to be printed around the corner of a cardboard box. 

 

In order for the logo to appear correctly and connected acrross all faces when the box's flaps are folded, the donut must be printed on three faces (two side faces plus one top flap when folded down.)

 

The print on the flat, unfolded box, will requre that my donut be adjusted with a gap, 90º or 25% of the circle, as open space to allow for the top flap's fold. The fold connects the two edges of the gap to finish the image.

 

In essence, this is a Pac Man circle and I need Pac Man's mouth to open up 90º without losing any bit of the logo.

 

Can this be done in Illustrator or Photoshop? Is this similar to preparing an image to be applied to a cone's surface?

 

Much appreciated in advance!

Not sure what magic button you are looking for. Simply duplicate the object and crop the relevant bits with clipping masks to the respective art boards/ print regions, including adjusting their offsets to account for the fold margins/ bleeds. No need to make it more complicated than that.

The problem is the fold. I have to warp the object radially to allow for a blank section to accomodate the box flap. 

 

Is there a way to smoosh the object radially so that it copresses into a 270º pie missing a 90º piece?

 

I found this older suggestion in Photoshop but I can't seem to get it to work in the current version. https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/15286/how-to-project-an-image-into-a-cone
