Box for trifles
You can make a beautiful box for small things in just a few minutes. If you do not know what to put in checks, hairpins and rubber bands, stationery, paper napkins or even candy - this option is perfect. In haste, you can build quite a decent candy bowl, or even a storage box for clothes and accessories.
What do we need?
- a piece of cardboard (its size and thickness depends on the purpose for which you will use the box)
- decorative paper (can be wrapping or postcards)
- ruler and scissors
How to make a box?
Suppose you want to make a square box with a size of 10 * 10 * 10 cm.
To do this, we cut a square of 30 * 30 cm in size from cardboard. Then we turn it into a cross, cutting off a square of 10 * 10 cm from each corner.
We begin to decorate our homemade box. To do this, we cut out 5 squares of 9 * 9 cm in size from beautiful paper (if you do not want the edges of the cardboard to be visible, make 10 * 10 cm) and paste them on the craft.
Bend and make holes in the upper corners of the squares. Skip the lace and tie bows.
Tip: It is very convenient to make the boxes not square, but rectangular. In such "boxes" you can store underwear, socks, cravats or ties.
