What You Need to Do

Using craft glue, put the rectangle on the front of the box.

Next, use cardstock paper and write the name of the person on the paper.

Fold the two sides over so that the name is now on the inside of the box.

Stick the four corners together with the craft glue.

Easter Egg Box


Another fun craft that you can make is making a box for an egg.

What You Will Need

  • First, you will need some large cardboard eggs that are round in shape.
  • Next, you will need some black construction paper and fold it over so that it forms a base for your eggs to rest on.

What You Need to Do

You can now paint the egg with different shades of blue.

Make sure that it is resting flat on the cardboard.

When the egg is done, you can then glue small pieces of ribbon on either side of the box so that the box is more beautiful and attractive.

Make sure that you cover the egg with the ribbon so that no light will get through.
