Scrap cardboard-box

Less than a year as I prepared a long-promised a master class in creating cardboard boxes.

1. Choose the size of future boxes. I chose the 22h10, 5×8 cm cut out of cardboard walls and floor, signing a size for your convenience, you still can not be seen. The walls 3 and 4 is less than the corresponding edge on the thickness of cardboard boxes x 2 (I have a board of 1,5 mm, respectively, they decreased by 3 mm). The walls 1 and 2 correspond to its edge.

At this stage it is important to clearly observe the angles, the slightest misalignment will affect the future of the product and the difficulty in working with him. So do not be lazy to cut out all smooth.

2. Spread it an edge wall with glue, I used PVA, but it does not matter.

And paste them to the bottom like this:

It turns out the “skeleton” of our boxes:

If at this stage the wall poorly kept – do not worry, this is done simply for convenience to further strengthen them:)

3. Now prokleivaem boxes inside edges with strips of paper. I used a favorite ikeevsky a la Kraft, which unfortunately is no longer on sale. But here you can use any options, as usual kraft packaging.

Fold each strip in half in length and cut here are blank on the size of our edges. Ultraprecise here at all is optional. I glued strips of glue on a pencil for easy application.

Already obtained a strong and sturdy box:

4. Preparing a paper to wrap the walls. In fact, how to wrap a box there are countless, though you can scraps pasted it will also quite creative. I chose the best, in my opinion, the easiest way for beginners. If you have a very large box can be divided as contained in this example, scanning at 2 or 4 pieces, only to cuts of pieces of paper correspond to the location of edges.

At my scan at length – the walls in expanded form, ie 22 +10.5 +22 +10.5 +2 cm overlap. At the height: 2 cm bend at the bottom, height 8 cm, thickness of cardboard 2 mm (round), yet the height of 8 cm (internal, it will be slightly smaller, but it’s already established himself in the process), the inner bend at the bottom 2 cm

Cut the angles about 45 degrees bend at the bottom.

5. Apply the glue to half of the scan and paste a box around the circle, starting from the edges where there is a reserve on the side bend.

Obtained as follows:

6. Scissor the sides, leaving here a “whisker” of thickness about 2 mm. Subsequently, the condition can be shortened, but not cut. He will provide us with a neat corners:)

Obtained as follows:

Also cut at 45 degrees to the edge of the inner bend, leaving a small margin that there was no neobkleenyh parts inside.

7. Apply the adhesive on the remainder of the large side walls and neatly glued to the inside, clearly proglazhivaya all angles.

Stick with a mustache:

And paste the smaller side panels:

Glue the cut out to fit a rectangular bottom:

As well as the inner bottom, which is before prikleivaeniem definitely need to try and accurately adjust the size of because to calculate the thickness of material to take into account difficult. I wanted to bottom of merry:)

8. Similarly, we do cover. I made it to 1,5 cm longer boxes, but I love the loose cover, but someone like, when the box is locked at a stretch. So there’s taste. Be sure at this point try on the cover and see how it behaves, already pasted:

Glued over the lid:

9. You can make paper shavings inside, so that the contents lay soft and comfortable:) I’m doing it from a roll of crepe paper, cut into rings and razlohmachivayu them:

10. Lacking only the top:

There is already possible to “break away”, as far as fantasy:)

That’s all done! You can put a gift inside, you can store your scrap-wealth, this is someone you like. By the way, we can make these boxes and albums, making them amazingly impressive and well suited to long-term storage.

Good luck and good mood:)
