How to make a box of cardboard with your own hands

Before you make a box of cardboard, we form a blank. To do this, we take a rectangular sheet of cardboard, whose width is almost two times less than the length, and draw it according to the following pattern:

The first line is at a distance of one part (for example, 2-3 cm) from the edge;

the second line - in three parts from the first;

the third line - in one part from the second;

the fourth line - at a distance of three parts from the third or at a distance of one parts from the opposite edge.

On the sheet cardboard it will look something like this:

Now our preform needs to be given a relief shape by cutting out small triangles where bends and glues will be subsequently made. Cut the pieces of cardboard highlighted in red. Cut out the semicircle on the side of the box (in the diagram on the left).

The scheme of cuts and folds of the box

We are working through all the fold lines, which is why our blank acquires a volume.

We begin to fold the box and fix joints of cardboard with glue. First, we collect the bottom.
