Presenting another papercraft box gift, with love and butterfly design.
Actually, you can design any kind of symmetrical drawings in replacement for the love shape or the butterfly shape using your own creativity. It can be flowers or bubbles or a splat sign, anything at all! Just replace the symmetrical drawings part with your own.
This is made by using cardboard, and self coloring of the love and butterfly shapes. It’s rather easy that even children can do this!
Print out the box template or have it drawn on the cardboard. You can adjust the size proportionately because it is of a cuboid shape initially.
