Step 2: Making the Box and Lid
Cut out 6 pieces out of cardboard,
A (box), B (lid) and C's as shown in the picture of this step.
Notice that I've drew 3 lines (oink, yellow & blue), make sure that pink + yellow = blue.
Now fold up the four sides (of A & B) & use glue or scotch tape to stick them.

You can use any kind of fabric.
Cover it with fabric as neatly as possible.

Stick the four pieces (C) inside the box as shown in the picture.
You can cover the inside of the box with fabric if you like.

Apply glue along the sides off the lid and then stick the yarn.
Decorate the lid with yarn. Use white glue to stick the yarn.
