DIY (268) – Simple box from recycled cardboard

Hi everyone!!!!

Today I want to share with you these cute DIY bags/boxes created from recycled cardboard.

They are so easy to make!!!

I have applied only greetings, but you can decorate them in a thousand other ways (lace, ribbons etc.)

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N.

SIMPLE BOX FROM RECYCLED CARDBOARD

material:

cardboard (also from an old box or envelope) – glue – decorations – template (below) – pencil

Print the template to the desired size.

Cut out the edges and copy to the card. To make the transfer on the card easier, I recommend cutting one of the tabs and placing it over the outer shape.

Copy the dotted lines (with this second mask created), and fold.

Another suggestion for making folding easier, if you don’t have the utensil to do this, is to trace the dotted lines with an old round tip pen (that doesn’t write, of course!).

Glue the side tab.

Your simple simple bag/box is ready.

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!
