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! Here are the steps:
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
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. I made this design and printed it. Here is the pattern, if you like it:
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!
