Directions:

  1. Line box with white paper 
  2. Use a pencil to trace a line around the box showing where the lid meets the box. 
  3. Add a row of glue stick to the box. To create the ruffle, press crepe paper into the glue every 1.5 inches or so, this will create a pleat. Continue to pleat until you reach your pencil line indicating where to stop.
