Instructions

Adventure Box

  1. Transform a paper shoebox into a hinged box by cutting two slits into the edges of the box’s lid and gluing the lid to the body of the box with hot glue.
  2. Cut two lengths of leather ribbon and glue along the lid as pictured, leaving the ribbon near the center of the lid unglued.
  3. Cut a third length of leather ribbon and fit it between the two straps to create a faux handle.
  4. Decorate the rest of your box by antiquing it with acrylic paint details, or UP themed badges and stickers.

 

Paper Binoculars

  1. Cut a paper towel roll into two, five-inch pieces and use the remaining inch to create a cardboard bridge between the two rolls.
  2. Give the binoculars some unique flair by adding strips of washi-tape, or extra layers of cardboard.
