With a Cardboard strip and  innovative ideas you can easily make wonderful boxes in square, triangle and circular shapes. Simple decorations with paper strips, paints, beads, sea shells or any item of your choice can transform these boxes into beautiful gifts for your friends or to keep Jewellery and other little treasures for yourself.

The materials given can be used to make a square, triangle and circular shaped boxes. Procedures are given below. You can make smaller or larger boxes by decreasing or increasing corresponding size of the cardboard pieces. 
›› Cardboard (packing material) 3 pieces of sizes a, b, c
  a : 7.5 cm x 30 cm (3 in.x 12in)
  b : 2.5cm x 38 cm (1 in.x 15 in.)
  c : 15 cm x 25 cm (6 in. x 10 in.)
›› A pencil, ruler, scissors, cello tape. 


Method :

1. Mark the cardboard strip (a) into three sections, each 10 cm (4 in.) wide. Fold the marked sections into a triangle and hold it with tape. 

2.  To make a bottom piece,  place the box onto the large piece of cardboard strip (c) and trace around the edge. Cut out the shape. Tape the bottom in place. 

3.  To make top for the box, place the bottom piece cut out, again on the remaining cardboard strip (c) and mark with the pencil around. Cut just outside the lines you drew, making a top shape slightly larger than the bottom shape. 

4.  To make the sides of the lid, place the larger triangle at one end of the long narrow strip (b). Mark the length of the triangle. Mark three equal sections on the narrow strip and trim off the small section remaining at the end. Fold each section into a triangle shape and tape the top to it.
