Day 21 of our Christmas Series of projects and freebies and today we have another free template for you.
Following on from our project notes on making Aperture Boxes, wtih our free template, here are some mini versions, perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree. If you are feeling keen, you could make up lots of these as an advent calendar (obviously for next year) or to give as a class gift for children.
I have a bad feeling I will be making quite a few of these for my kids but they are pretty easy to put together, so that won't be so bad.
The template includes a sheet of boxes, so you can just print them and cut them out. Cut along the solid lines and score the dotted lines. Cut out the central window with a scalpel/craft knife.
Cut a piece of acetate to size and use double sided tape along the edges. Fix this inside the window. If you can't find acetate, try using some packaging from fruit boxes.
Put some tape or a wet glue along the edges of the base piece and assemble the box.
Seal one end and until you have filled your box and then seal it with some double sided tape
Fill the box with small sweets/lollies, small gifts or gold coins. Add a piece of cord to one corner if you want to hang your box.
Check the member pages for the mini aperture box template.
