Wedding chest made of cardboard, with their own hands

On one of bokovinok draw here is a typical path for the trunk lid. You can stick to any size. And can be "approximately" To how convenient!

The second side cover do exactly the same! but on the "profile" carry two lanes: one connects the lower points of each arc on the side cover, and the second is the height of our future cover.

Now take the hands of scissors and cut the "extra". Create a "bulge" of the cover. I think the photo shows what I mean.

Next step: my box cover is dense enough and just did not want to bend beautifully. Therefore, blunt scissors do here such grooves (on the inner side of the box). The distance between the barbs arbitrary - I have about 1.5 cm.

Now, cut to the bottom line of the three. parties. I did it with a sharp knife.

"I finish" the lid of my chest. Personally, I take a sticky paper tape that is sold in DIY stores building called Scotch;) Well, just take it, and tear off pieces of the fixture cover each other

In this photo visible. crop the scissors (you can with a knife) "extra" part of the cover. I connect all of the same tape.

Well. have something drawn.

If this chest will throw money - it's time to think about "the hole." To do this, the inside of the cover drawing the contours and cut with a sharp knife.

if you just cut the on the "bottom" line - that after we pasted over our chest, he will not be able to close well. Therefore it is necessary to increase our groove as I tried to show in the photo to about 3 millimeters.

We start our chest paste. It is for this trunk, I again picked up the wallpaper, which is specially bought for this purpose.

I am glued to the glue from the spray cartridge (as pictured), but this is my personal choice!

I begin to paste over: once before and two side cover, and then is bent over the back, and then I cut the corners and tuck. After everything is smoothed, I expel the air and once more the good cuddle.

Next step: circling bokovinki cover cut out here are blank.

Glued bokovinki cover.

Having measured the width of the trunk cut out the following detail. It will have to be pasted: the bottom, a rear wall and cover. So long you will need to calculate taking into account all these details.

While the glue is still not frozen - I make a cut here.

Here's a little hole to get envelopes.

At this stage our wedding chest for the money looks like.

If you feel that the trunk lid has turned out too heavy and constantly "trying to fall off" when you open it - then before you paste the trunk from inside the glue on one side cover inside a piece of ribbon as in the photo. Try to find the position of the cover in which it is already "back reclines" in this position glue a ribbon. Then you can safely begin to paste inside the trunk.

I felt that my cover "fall off" and so will not be so removed the ribbon and start the same with wallpaper paste inside. If you want to tinker - can be inside and obdelat material - beautifully it turns out, but a little more fuss.

As paste - I think especially not worth it to deepen. Slot for envelopes made later - when the glue dries.

Now cut the cardboard strip (I here about 5 cm in width and length bokovinki = 2/3 width of the front wall width + 2/3 + bokovinki width).

Try on "the inside. As pictured. Carton looks approximately 2 cm above the edge of the chest.

This piece of cardboard I also plastered with the same wallpaper, moreover, so that the "seam" at the bottom appeared.

Until about the middle coat with glue and adhered to the inner wall (walls) sunduchka.Manikyurnymi scissors cut a hole for envelopes.

He pulled out of the "bins" all sorts of things that are associated with the wedding.

Hot glue the gun added doves and hearts. and.
