DIRECTIONS 1 On the underside of the box, fold the shorter flaps in and the longer flaps over them. Tape them into place. 2 Glue the shorter flaps down and cut away the area where the shorter flaps don’t touch the longer ones. 3 On the upper side of the box, cut away the longer flaps and one shorter flap. 4 On the remaining flap, run your pen knife in a straight line 5cm from the box edge to make a slit. Bend the flap at the slit so that it forms an angle. Glue it in place. 5 Wrap the yellow paper around the box. 6 Inside the box, punch 4 holes, one at each corner of the opening at the underside of the box. 7 Thread the string through the holes and secure with knots to prevent it from slipping through. 8 Decorate with the blue, orange and red paper and the paper plates.
