These boxes of felt can have many uses, but I have loved to wrap gifts, because I think they can be great with the felt bows we have taught you before. Letâs make a felt box then.
From $29 / box
Wrapping gifts with cardboard boxes made by ourselves gives the gift a much better presentation than a paper wrapper and the procedure is very simple, especially if we have a template to make a nice box like the one you see in the tutorial of bee- inspired If you also make this gift box with recycled cardboard, the gift will be doubly special. Template to make a gift box With this template of ruthannzaroff you get a nice gift box that you can then decorate by gluing a heart, some paper flowers or a label to complement the recycled wrapping on the front of it. Cardboard labels can be made by hand or printed along with the mold of the box. Cute gift tags can be found in Printable and Arming Labels or in Circus Labels for gifts.
How to make Explosive Box to give away step by step STEP 1. We mark the cardboard as in the drawing that you will see below (the dotted lines are crease zones). STEP 2. On a paper or piece of cardboard we mark and cut a square of 10 x 10 cm. We fold it in half by joining the corners so that we have a triangle and draw half a heart. In the following drawing you can see how the square and the heart inside are open. STEP 3. We cut the heart and use it as a template. If you look at the previous drawing, we see the heart in red. With the help of a pencil we mark hearts in the four corners and cut as in the drawing. In this way we will have the four corners with a heart shape. STEP 4. Now we have to fold the hearts in half to close the box. For this we try to join the two closest sides of the box and we mark the fold with the hand. Once we have it marked (and the box is well closed) we mark the folds with a folder. STEP 5. To decorate the interior walls of the explosive box I cut decorated papers of 9.5 x 9.5 cm, this measure will vary if you like to see the bottom more or less. If you do not want the bottom cardboard to be cut, cut it in the same way as the square that forms each wall, but if you want it to look a lot, cut the smaller square. STEP 6. In the box color craft I have made another âlevelâ, for this I have used a cardboard of 27 x 27 cm and I have divided it as the following drawing. The dotted lines are folds and the red ones are cuts. Once the cuts are made, we mark the crease zones very well. STEP 7. To keep the flaps closed and remain as âsecretâ spaces I have used mini-magnets, which I have placed in the following way. First I stick the magnet of one of the tabs and I secure it with washi tape and then I put the other magnet on it and I put a drop of glue so that when it closes it stays marked where it goes. Once the magnets are dry, I put the decorated paper on top. These flaps do not appear decorated in the photos because I have reserved them to put texts and photos. STEP 8. To decorate the walls of this second interior box, I used 8 x 8 cm red cardboard and cut the corners. For the decoration I used cut-outs from the same collection. In one of the flaps I made a waterfall or waterfall, as it is called in English, and in another a heart that slips.
Why you should hire us...
There are many types of rubber eva, to make the base and lid of this box of chopsticks I have used corrugated eva rubber, which is the same as the normal but wavy on one of its faces, and I used also to make hats and party crowns and eva rubber wristbands. You need a lot of wood chopsticks that are the same, if you do not believe or want to eat so many ice creams you can also buy a bag at a craft store (they cost more or less â¬ 1 the bag of 50 units). For this box I used 78 sticks (72 for the base and 6 to decorate the lid), but they can be more or less depending on the height you want them to have. As each manufacturer makes the sticks with a different size, I have prepared a template with perfect hexagon shape (download at the end) with hexagons of different sizes to serve you whatever the length of your chopsticks.
Measure and cut out the hexagon that matches the length of your wooden sticks and use it as a mold to cut out an eva rubber hexagon for the base. Put a bit of glue or silicone on the ends of the sticks and see them sticking, one by one and in the way you see in the video until the box has the height you want.
