Music for Crafting
Here is the perfect song for this DIY project.
Let's Box it Up!
Turn your box upside down. Measure and mark one inch from all four sides.
Using your utility knife, cut out the center of the box (the part you just marked).
Take a piece of tissue paper and tape it to the bottom of the box. Trim it so no edges are showing.
