Before you start

  • Make three of the lovely boxes we showed you in the "Handy Paper Box with Cover" post.
  • [Materials for boxes] Three sheets of A4 size design paper

  • Here's how to make the boxes »

How to

1 Cut the design paper in half vertically.
2 Add glue to one short edge of a sheet, and make one long strip of paper.
(The photo below shows you how it should look)
3 Make creases to fit the edges of the boxes.
(A) Width of a box: approx. 8 cm
(B) Height of three boxes: approx. 11.5 cm
4 Wrap the long strip of paper around the three boxes and pinch it at the top.
Make sure that the ends of the strip meet in the middle of the box.
We're going to need about 4 cm from the top of the box. Cut off the rest of the strip.
5 Fold about 2 cm from the top, crease well, and then punch two holes.
6 Pass a thread or a ribbon through the holes and tie it.
If you want to add a gift tag, pass it through the gift tag now!
7 Well done! You’re all wrapped up!
