Step 3: Creating the Bottom of the Box.

  • Add PVA glue on the equilateral cardboard triangle.
  • Stick it on the design paper triangle.
  • Score along the lines.
  • Cut the excess of the paper.
  • Fold the sides and stick them on the cardboard triangle.

Step 4: Creating the Sides of the Box.

Repeat the above process.

Step 5: Unite the Sides With the Base.

  • Mark the middle of the rectangles and score along the lines.
  • Fold them in half.
  • Cut the corners of the triangles as shown in the photos.
  • Unite the sides with the base using the rectangles.

Step 6: Decorating the Outside of the Box.

  • Take the wide ribbon and cut 3 pieces, 1 for each side.
  • Stick them on the sides using pva glue.
  • Stick the remaining part on the inside.
  • Using some glue dots stick a ribbon bow on a side.

Step 7: Making the Covers and Adding Them to the Box.

  • For a nicer effect, dust the red triangles sides with some ink.
  • Get one of the red triangles and create a pocket on it using the scrap paper.
  • The second triangle will be decorated using some green ribbon.
  • Add the 3 triangles on the base using pva glue.
  • Take the white triangle and create a snow effect on it using some cotton pads, than stick it to the base.

Step 8: Decorating the Box.

  • Add some mini pearls on the green ribbon.
  • On the plain side add the Santa sticker and some mini white pearls to create a snow effect.
  • Add a piece of cotton pad on the pocket to create that snow effect again ;)
  • Create your center master piece using mini Christmas trees, red berries, red pearls, jingle bells.

Step 9: Making the Lid.

  • Stick the 3 squares together as I'm doing in the photos.
  • Using some glue stick the two stars together and and than stick them to the lid.

Step 10: Congrats! Your Box Is Ready :)
