Step 1: Essentials
-some card stock or thick paper:-
cut one sheet into the size/shape of the box that u want. cut another sheet about a centimeter bigger than this on all sides (this is your lid)
cut a few strips of cardstock/ paper 4 cm thick.
if you have a design or a print for your lid- stick it on or draw it right now!
Step 2: Score the Strips
now cut from one side to the centre to make a zig-zag pattern like in the picture
Step 3: Sticking It Together
where ever the strip finished, start a new one and stick them with a little piece of cardstock to hold the strength.
Step 4: Attach Flap
Step 5: Ur Box Is Ready!
thats it! pretty simple, i know but i hope it was useful!
specially for kids who enjoy doing simpler crafts.
ps- the lid is bigger than the base so that there is space to hold the lid and flip it open and also so that the lid does not go inside the base.. if you want u could attach a string or a tassel at the centre for lifting up/opening the lid :)
