Step 1

Take the box…

Cut on the line.

It will look like this.


Step 2

Place the box on its side on the paper and draw the contour.

Turn it on the other side and continue the contour. It will look like this.

Apply a layer of glue on half of the paper…

… and place the box on it.

Then glue the other half.

Like this.

Continue covering  the sides of the box.

You can cover the inside of the sides too.

It will look like this.


Step 3

Put a little bit of paint on a piece of paper…

… and use the pencil with eraser head…

… to make white dots.

Decorate the box with white dots.

Finally, let’s add a thin band of paint on the edges.

Let it dry well.

Now you can use the organizer.
