Flat box with high onion dome

Anna made the patterns for this new flat box with an onion dome top. For my box I used paper of quality 80 g/sqm. This is not quite heavy enough for the large container. 100 g/sqm or possibly 120 g/sqm would be better. However, the small squares in the top of the onion dome can…

Box with small circles

    The weaving for the box with small circles is ordinary biaxial and not difficult. The pattern for the sides is the same as introduced in Woven Heart #008.  The small circles are just added as an extra layer when weaving. The pattern for the lid is somewhat different as one set of strips…

Onion Dome Box #002

The top of this Onion Dome Box #002 is made in the same way as you would make a cone. Cut 4 times 6 strips in the colours you like. Because of the shape of the individual strips you have to cut them out individually. Score the strips making rectangles in the wide end. Glue…

Onion Dome Box

Woven Box

Cut out two of each piece in different colours. You also need at strip of paper 4 cm wide and as long as an A4. The top is made just like a cone, see Cone #001. When you have done all the weaving you must pull the strips gently so that the small half circles…

Circus Tent Box

Print and cut out the six pieces. Use a blunt needle or knitting-needle and a ruler to score the edges before folding. First glue together the individual pieces using the white flaps. Then glue the pieces together using the coloured flaps. When gluing together two pieces start with every second flap of the eight flaps…

Tower Box

This box takes time to cut out, fold and glue together. But I do not think it difficult to make. Print and cut out the six pieces. Use a blunt needle or knitting-needle and a ruler to mark the edges before folding. First glue together the individual pieces using the white flaps. Then glue the…
