Almost every girl is the owner of a huge number of decorations. And all this wealth must be added somewhere. That is why today we will talk about the boxes. Back in ancient times, these small, but very beautiful boxes were the subject of the pride of a woman. And judging by archaeological excavations, such a subject appeared in ancient Egypt. In those distant times, the caskets were made of wood decorated with carvings.

Box do it yourself: how to make itTo the industrial revolution, such a product was a big rarity, and only very wealthy ladies could have. Today, due to the high level of development of technology and a huge amount of materials, a box can get each of us.

And, by the way, if you don’t want to go shopping and spend a lot of time searching for something special, then you can make a small bowl with your own hands.

How to make a box of cardboard

Perhaps one of the most affordable materials for creating a casket – it’s cardboard. In this case, you should not have any problems with the purchase of material, and the cost of such a craft will not be too high. So let’s consider one of the options for the manufacture of such a subject from cardboard.

In order to create the first option you will need:

  • Several sheets of cardboard;
  • Sharp stationery knife;
  • Simple pencil and ruler;
  • High-quality glue, best to stop your choice on PVA. 

So, proceed! First take one sheet, and draw a few rectangles on it. Size depends exclusively because you are going to put inside. Each rectangle in the future will be a deepening to the cable. 

After the rectangles are drawn, you will need to cut them along the contour using the stationery knife. So you get a kind of template. Using it you need to cut rectangles in several sheets of cardboard. Now armed with glue and glue all sheets as shown in the figure. 

And one more thing: before gluing sheets with holes, glue five or six one-piece sheets. So you will get a pretty durable bottom for your product. By the way, the depth of each compartment may be different.

To do this, you just need to not cut in each sheet the same number of rectangles. For example, the deepest will be the first hole, it means that you cut out this rectangle on all sheets. The second square will be slightly less deep. It means you need to cut it only since the fifth sheet of twenty. In the same way we make very small holes. 

In order for the box coolerly bonded, put on top on the finished product of some big, rectangular item. Note that it should be hard for the sheets of cardboard pretty so. Leave such products for the night under load, and here it is your casket made by hand. If the design seems to you too simple, then you can decorate it in any way. 

How to make a casket from paper

Box do it yourself: how to make itIf for some reason you don’t have a cardboard, and the casket is really needed right now, then you can use paper. Of course, no one speaks about the usual A4 leaves, which are designed for printing. You need dense, construction paper.

Attention! We glue each fold from the inside of the casket. And here is the frame of our casket ready! Exactly according to the same principle and make a lid. 

After the casket frame is ready, you can decorate it as you want. For example, you can make several volumetric colors or paper bows and glued to the edges of the frame. And you can draw something beautifully with multi-colored chalk. Another option to decorate can be considered gluing small pieces of fabric and lace. So turn on fantasy and create!

Now we take the foam rubber and cut it into small stripes. As for the fabric, it will be used to cover the foam rubber. After the stripes are covered, you put them in the box one near the other. One roll of fabric and foam rubber need to be put across to divide the zones in the box.

The minus of this box can be the fact that you have to spoil one of the books. But if this question is not fundamental for you, you can safely start creating. For the manufacture of such a cute thing you will need a thick book.

Turn over several pages and start cutting the middle of the pages. You should not get to the last page, just like first, we leave the box at the bottom of several pages.
