Useful advice from the author: the production of the box is planned without glue, but in the case with the box in the photo, the corners and edges were fastened with glue for better strength. With self-made boxes, you will understand whether you need to glue the corners or not. The main thing is not afraid to try and experiment, the creative process is endless and beautiful, enjoy.
Decorate the received box can be a ribbon or braid, tying a bow or knot.
