How to make a 3D box?
- Cut out a strip of 3mm thick cardboard then score it 7 times to form 4 triangles at the top and 4 triangles at the bottom.
- The width of the cardboard will determine the size of your finished box.
- Put the paper you want onto the inside of the box then glue it together to form a square at the base.
