Last year I made a Jewelry box for my dolls during camp. I like the idea so here is how to do it.
You will need:
Card stock or a box
aluminum foil (Optional)
MAKING THE BOX
You can skip this step if you have a box the right size,
Put two of your matchboxes side by side on the card stock and trace around them. I am only using two but I would recommend four.
Mark two dots about a centimeter up from the line.
Use your ruler to draw a line from one dot to the other.
Do it all the way around.
Set two of your match boxes on one of the longer lines and trace around.
You should have two rectangles, one of them with lines around them.
Cut the shape out so that it looks like this.
Bend on all of the lines.
The side without the flap should have little squares. Cut on one of the lines just enough so that it starts to fold into a box.
Glue the flaps that you just cut to the side of the box and the other end to the other side of the box.
Now you have a box for the top.
Cover your matchboxes with card stock that matches your box. You could also use cloth or duck tape.
Glue the matchboxes to your box. You could stop here or you could keep going.
To make a mirror I took a piece of aluminum foil.
I folded the sides over so that it was about the same size of the lid of my Jewelry box and glued it on.
I also lined the bottom with felt.
There are many variations that you could do to this craft. Don’t just make it like I did, Take it and make it your own!
