I couldn’t afford to give you a present this year, so I bought you this box instead. I hope you like it!
What is a box?
A box is a three-dimensional container, typically rectangular or cuboid, mainly used for storing and transporting goods. Alternate designs exist, such as cylindrical or hexagonal. Boxes are usually made of paperboard or cardboard, and are used for packaging goods such as foods, beverages, cosmetics and various other consumer products.
How to make a box
Not everyone can afford to buy presents for their friends and loved ones, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show them how much you care. If you’re feeling crafty,Why not make a box?
Here’s what you’ll need:
-A4 sized paper
1.Start by folding the A4 paper in half lengthwise. Then, fold it in half again. You should now have a rectangle that is half the size of the original A4 sheet.
2.Next, use the scissors to cut along the folded edge of the paper. Once you’ve done this, unfold the paper and you should now have a long strip of paper that is two inches wide.
3.Now, take one end of the strip and fold it up so that it meets the other end. Then, use the tape to secure the end in place. This will form one side of the box.
4.To make the other side of the box, take the strip of paper and fold it in half so that it forms a loop. Tape the ends together to form a second side for your box.
5.To make the lid for your box, take one end of the strip and fold it up so that it meets the other end. Then, use tape to secure the lid in place
