Our Collected & Co boxes are a blank canvas just waiting to be brightened up. Create a special gift that showcases Corrugated Cardboard and some beautiful kids’ artwork. A handmade keepsake box is something everyone will love!

Step

Step 1:

Collected everything you will need. Make sure you chose a contrasting or complementary piece of Corrugated Board to match YOUR artwork!
Step

Step 2:

Cut your Corrugated Board and artwork into strips. These can be as thick or as thin as you like, you can even use a variety of thicknesses. Just make sure they will fit around the box.
Step

Step 3:

Take the strips of artwork and use a piece of tape to secure underneath the lid – do this for one end of the strip only so that you can still weave.
Step

Step 4:

The Corrugated Board is a bit too thick to wrap all the way under the lid so we just stuck them right on the edge. You can tape them any way you like but so that the tape is hidden we folded it on itself first and pushed it into place. Do this for just one end of the strip only to allow for weaving.
Step

Step 5:

To ensure that the Corrugated Board is extra secure, we ran a piece of Paper Tape in a matching colour along the outside.
Step

Step 6:

Now it’s time to weave! Alternate weaving each piece Corrugated Board under and over each piece of paper.
Step

Step 7:

Complete steps 4, 5 and 3 with the other ends of the strip to secure completely around the lid and your keepsake box is finished!
