To make such a box-shirt for Veterans you'll need


— templates of the box, tie and butterfly,
— colored cardboard or thick paper of any desired color,
— scissors,
— pencil,

— needle for punching the fold lines,
— double sided tape.

Template



Making


Take a sheet of white paper and print the template. Cut out the parts. Place the template on the cardboard and trace it with a pencil. Cut out the details of the box, fold and fasten them as shown in the instruction.

While making this box, the main is to punch 3 lines which are on the sides and converge at one point. If the lines are punched well, the box will be folded well.

You've made the box, now decorate it: glue a tie or a butterfly on it. Together with the tie glue three small circles from colored paper portraying the buttons. Put your gift inside the box and glue with double sided tape.

One gift box can be made from paper sheet A4. Such a box is good for a small gift. Otherwise you'll have to print the template on a large format printer.
