DIY Pretty Small Box From Chips Container

I was thinking how can I use the big cylindrical container from the chips... and I've figured it out - with the help of some inexpensive materials, that I already had at home, I made a pretty storage box. It is perfect for jewelry or ribbons for your crafts!

What you need:
- clean cylindrical chips container – I washed mine with water and dish soap, then wiped it dry with kitchen paper
- thick thread or yarn
- wrapping paper
- satin ribbon
- scissor
- glue
Step 1: Use sharp knife to cut the cylinder whatever high you prefer your box to be.
Step 2: Cut to 2 pieces of the thread with the length of the cylinder’s width.
Step 3: Make a twisted rope with the two pieces of the thread.
Step 4: Glue the rope to the top edge of the cylinder, so when closed, the lid is secured.
Step 5: Glue the wrapping paper around the cylinder.
Step 6: Cut out 2 circles from the paper, using the size of the lid as a guide – one for the lid and one for the bottom inside the cylinder.
Step 7&8: Glue the circles as it is shown below:
Step 9: Use the satin ribbon to decorate the box – I used it on the bottom so the metallic edge of the container is covered.
Step 10: Place your jewelry inside and that’s it – pretty storage box!
