How to make a cardboard box

The easiest option - to make crafts from cardboard.

We will need:

  • thick cardboard of any color
  • scissors,
  • pencil,
  • ruler,

Step-by-step instruction

  1. First, we determine the size of the box. If your gift is not too large, then an A4 sheet of paper should suffice. If the present is more dimensional, take a few sheets of cardboard.
  2. We make a pattern of the bottom and walls of the box. To do this, put the object that is supposed to give (let it be, for example, a ring), to the middle of the sheet and draw around it - with a margin of severalBoxcentimeters - square. This is the future bottom of the box. To each of the walls of the resulting square perpendicular we draw rectangles of equal height. These are the walls of the box. Do not forget to attach a small segment to the side between the walls.
  3. Carefully cut out the pattern and bend along the lines. We glue the walls together with the help of PVA glue. Let the construction dry out well.
  4. Then, you can glue the box with special paper. To learn how to do this, read the article How to paste over the box.
  5. We make the lid of the box in the same way, but it should be slightly larger than the bottom with the walls in order to freely fit on top. This is one of the options for making a gift box yourself.
