In this video I will show you how to make a weaved box from newspaper tubes and cardboard.
The lid is decorated in decoupage technique.
As I have leftouts the newspaper tubes after making a purse (my recent tutorial), I have decided to use them to make the box.
It took me less than 50 tubes.
Tubes were painted with a solution of acrylic paint (coffee color), water and acrylic lacquer.
For the bottom and cover I used cardboard circles.
Dimensions are indicated in the video.
I glued it with the napkins.
After drying, I coated it with brown acrylic paint.
I weaved with two tubes.
The size of the lid was small, so I added tubes at the edges.
I applied the lid to the basis of the box and customized it in size.
For the lid, used a decoupage napkin.
You can use and an ordinary napkin with a beautiful pattern.
I have done it many times.
The surface where the napkin is glued should be light, so I did not paint over it with dark paint.
I covered the whole box with acrylic lacquer.
My varnish is of pine color.
I bought it by mistake without looking at a label :)
Now you have to use it :)
