Steps 1: build the box
- Trace and cut 3 squares of 15 cm on the pieces of cardboard as well as 2 squares of 15 x 14.5 cm - Mark with a small cross the 3 squares of 15 cm to differentiate them from the second ones - Trace strips of 15 cm on the kraft paper tape and cut them - Glue one end of a square of cardboard with glue varnish - Wet a strip of kraft paper with a sponge and stick half of it on the cardboard square - Place a second square cardboard perpendicular to the first - Proceed in the same way to create the box - The 15 x 14.5 cm squares must be on two parallel sides - Take the measurements from the top of the box and put them on the paper tape kraft - Cut the strips of kraft paper, and glue them to the edges of the box - Cut cardboard to the dimensions of the top of the box - Cut strips of kraft paper and glue them to the edges of the cardboard - Glue the cardboard on the box with kraft paper and create the cover e from the box
Step 2: decorate the box
- Paint the box in turquoise blue - Leave to dry for 2 hours - Place a fabric in the same tones in the box - Place your gift on it - And close your box with decorative ribbons The decor tip: if the gummed kraft paper is of poor quality, it peels off when drying (test the day before on a piece of cardboard to check it). To solve the problem, we reinforce it with vinyl glue! Creation: Amandine Dardenne, co-author of the book "Cardboard decoration" at Tana Editions.
