In this video, a very simple way to make a box of newspaper tubes is presented.
You will need the following materials:
- newspapers (magazines);
- PVA glue (PVA construction, carpentry glue);
- hot glue (for the quick bonding of some elements);
- cardboard (any, for the basics);
- acrylic paints;
- glossy, acrylic lacquer.
On the cardboard blank I wind tubes. Connect tubes with each other with PVA glue. At the very beginning and at the end I fix the ends with hot glue. In addition, a smaller strфp was pasted on the cardboard blank to make the walls of the box a little rounded.
I made the bottom made round, twisting tubes into a circle. I chose size to match the blank (the walls).
The cover is made in a similar way. The form was made immediately, so that the glue did not have time to grab between the tubes.
The individual elements were attached with hot glue. Their location and number can be set as you wish.
After acrylic paint I applied a layer of glossy varnish. It looks prettier on such things than a matte.
A little tip: I made the box from magazine tubes. It is harder to work with it as it is thicker than newspaper. The work will be more accurate if the tubes are flat. It is difficult to make it with hands, so I used small, metal hammer. Now I use it not only for nails :) I just press it along a tube.
