For making handmade boxes for tea using cardboard technique, it is necessary to prepare two companion cuts of cotton fabric (with a picture of kitchen utensils and a cage), binding or beer cardboard (3 mm and 2 mm thick), drawing paper, thick PVA glue, transparent polymer glue, as well as mock-up knife, masking tape, scissors, pencil and ruler.
Modeling and assembly boxes
The casket will consist of two main parts: a box and a section for tea bags. To form a cardboard binding box, cut two rectangles 21.5 x 9.5 cm in size (casket base), 9.5 x 8.9 cm in size (side walls), as well as a back wall of 20.9 x 8.9 cm and a flip cover 21, 5x9.7 cm
Glue the side and back walls of the box to the lower base of the box (21.5x9.5 cm). At the end, glue the upper base.
According to the dimensions shown on the diagram, cut out the details of the section for tea bags from cardboard. First glue at a right angle of the base, and then glue the side partitions. All the details of the casket at this stage must be glued with transparent polymeric glue, and the masking tape should be used for temporary fixation of the parts.
To wrap the front side of the box out of the draw paper, cut a rectangle of 40.9x9.5 cm, and from a fabric with the image of kitchen utensils, cut 43x12 cm. Glue the fabric onto the paper paper, leaving 1 cm allowance on each side.
Hereinafter, for gluing fabric and paper parts use PVA glue.
Paste the obtained blank side and top base of the box.
Cut off excess fabric at the corners of the box.
Get the fabric allowances inside and glue them.
Similarly, handle the corners of the joints, falling to the bottom of the box.
Now prepare for pasting the inside bottom of the box: cut a rectangle of 20.5x9 cm in size from a drawing paper and 22.5x11 cm from fabric. Glue the fabric with the image of kitchen utensils to paper, and cut the corners of the fabric at a right angle.
Glue the blank to the bottom of the box, put the allowances on the walls.
To wrap the inside of the box out of whatman paper, cut the blank 38.5x8.8 cm, and from the fabric into the red cage 40.5x10.8 cm. Cut the corners of the fabric at a right angle, and then go inside and glue the allowances along the long sides of the rectangle.
Glue the blank to the inside of the box. Thus, at this stage, the two sides and the upper base of the box box should be glued inside and outside.
Cover design and sections for tea bags
To implement this step, cut out the rectangle 21.3x20 cm from the paper, and from the fabric with the image of the kitchen utensils - 24.3x23 cm. Glue the cardboard blank of the hinged cover (21.5x9.7 cm).
On the inside of the blank, first glue the seam allowance with a length of 24.3 cm, and then the side seam allowance.
Now stick the drawing paper to the bottom base of the casket, having a seam allowance on the back wall.
To finish pasting the outer part of the box, cut out rectangles: 20.5x8.5 cm from a Whatman paper, from the fabric into a cage — 1 cm more on each side, i.e. 22.5x10.5 cm. Cut all the corners at a 45-degree angle, set the allowances inwards and glue the allowances along the long sides, and then along the short sides of the box. Glue the resulting billet to the inner base, and put the stock on the cover.
Take care of the design of the section for tea bags. To do this, cut out rectangles measuring 20.3x8.7 cm and 20.3x8.5 cm from cardboard (2 mm). Glue them along the long side. Then, in accordance with the dimensions indicated in the diagram, cut out 4 parts of the partitions and glue them between the bases.
Pasting the bag section start on the outside of the sides.To do this, cut out the contours of the parts, glue them with a cloth with the image of kitchen utensils. Glue the parts to the outer sides of the bag section, and allow for allowances at the bottom of the bases and through the cuts into the inside of the cells.
Cover sections of internal partitions with strips of fabric.
Go to pasting the inside of the section. Cut 3 rectangles of 16x6.4 cm from a drawing paper, and 18x8.4 cm of fabric into a cage. Pour over the inner cells with the obtained blanks, dragging allowances on the side partitions.
To glue the sides of the partitions, cut out 6 parts from the drawing paper, glue them over with a cloth, and allow the inside allowances. Glue them to the cardboard parts.
At the end of the creation of the carton box for tea, glue over the base of the bag section, glue the blank to the hinged lid and attach the decorative handle.
