a simpler method to make a smaller box:
- Use a photocopier
to expand the template
to a larger size.
- Draw round the
enlarged template on to the card.
- Score the folds
with a sharp pencil and ruler.
- Fold the scored
lines to form the box and the internal lid, then glue.
- Bore small holes
into the top edge of each side of the box 20 mm from the top edge. Thread
the string through the hole from the outside inwards and tie a knot
on each end.

Following the measurements
shown on the template, draw out the shape either straight on to the card
or on to graph paper.
Then follow as shown above.
