Fancy Cardboard Box




Introduction: Fancy Cardboard Box

About: I am a full time IT professional doing craft works in my free time. Got inspired by my wife as she is very creative and involved in creating new crafts all the time.

The box is made of thick board from package boxes, carry bags and greeting cards, which can also be replaced with any available materials like, for example, carry bag can be replaced with any plastic sheets or thick paper sheets and package box boards can be replaced with any thin plastic boards.

Let's see the step by step make-up of the box.
