Round Box Instructables by Judith_ou

This week’s MotD theme: Instructables in the Round

Luxembourg maker and Instructables contributor, Judith_ou, shows us how to make this pretty round box out of paper and glue in 5 steps…and it only requires a little bit of math. 🙂

The width of the rectangle will be the height of the box.
The length of the rectangle needs to fit around the circle (multiply the diameter of the circle by pi !) and you need at least 2 cm extra to glue it.

BEFORE cutting out the rectangle: make sure to leave an extra cm on one length.

What a fun project…to make something practical yet allowing our Creative Spirit to come out and play.

Inspiration for Today

Judith’s instructable shows us how with a little time and supplies, which we probably already have on hand, we can make something useful and creative with the unlimited freedom to express ourselves in truly delightful ways.

Happy Coloring!
