Turning a Many Merry Star into a box

star box

The stars in the Many Merry Stars kit are 3D and fully enclosed but they can be converted into a shallow box. Here’s how:

star box 1

Step 1 – Cut the adhesive backed box side into two lengthways.





star box 2

Step 2 – Apply one of the box sides to one of the stars, keeping it so that it is just a teeny smidgeon (technical term 🙂 ) outside the star. This becomes the box lid.
