  • Cardboard/cardboard box
  • Plain paper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Clear plastic (find this on packaging and stuffs like dat)

How to make it!..

Firstly, to make the box find a small cardboard box and cut off the top for the perfect size:

Then get a sheet of paper and wrap it around the box like you’re wrapping a present sorta! Secure the paper to the box with tape.

Now you’re going to want to cut two thin strips of cardboard long enough to wrap around the box (so I recommend you cut them lengthways) carefully like soo:

Glue them to the box with a tiny bit of PVA in the centre of the strips all the way along and leave to dry!

You can also fold the edges and wrap it around, glueing along the way.

Then get the plastic and cut some tiny little rectangles that are as tall as the gap between the two strips of cardboard (see the pictures below)

Then all you have to do is tuck the letters in between the strips and you’re donee! (I actually then covered the cardboard strips with white paper and just glued them down)
