Try this Chinese gift carton craft and you'll have as much fun making this birthday gift box as you do selecting and giving the present.
What You'll Need:
- Plain Chinese food cartons
- Black felt-tip pen
- Construction paper or colored tissue paper
- Craft glue
- Strip of fabric or ribbon (optional)
HOW TO MAKE A CHINESE GIFT CARTON:
Step 1: If the carton has a handle, carefully pull it off of the carton. Set it aside. Draw a birthday or holiday symbol on each side of the carton. For a birthday present, you might draw a birthday cake or for Christmas, an ornament shape.
Step 2: With an adult's help, carefully cut out the shape. Paste a piece of construction paper or colored tissue paper behind the cutout window.
Step 3: Carefully place the handle back on the carton. If your carton does not have a handle, staple the fabric strip or ribbon to the carton to make a handle.
