Picture of How to make a Cardboard Box from recycled cardboard
This box uses regular cardboard that usually gets thrown away. It makes a sturdy box for storing small things, you can basically make it any size you like. it would make a great gift box for jewelry, or for storing different items.

btw this is my first Instructable, I'll do my best to explain everything, but if there's something you don't understand or I can do better please leave a comment =)

Step 1: What You Need

cardboard (cereal box, cracker box, anything you have)
glue (elmer's)
sand paper/nail file
acrylic paint
paint brush/sponge applicator
Very nice
 what about the lid?

for the lid you would do the same thing as the box just a bit bigger on all sides. (how much bigger would depend on the thickness of the cardboard you created. and of course shorten the hight)
I love the last picture, you have amazing drawing skills!
