Step 2: Let's Cut the Boxes!

  • Take an empty medicine box and mark the measurements on it and use a cutter to cut along the markings.

  • Repeat the same process with the other set of 3 as well.
  • Now remove the clips and we will get a star-shaped object.

Step 5: Let's Wrap the Outer Portion!

  • Apply glue on the upper portion of the cardboard and paste the cardboard star on it.
  • Wrap the outer portion of the star-shaped box with printed paper.

Step 6: Let's Make a Lid!

  • Cut out another star shape piece to make the lid of the box.
  • Now, make some markings on the cardboard as done earlier and cut it
  • Fix these cardboard pieces on the lid portion of the star as shown here.
