Tips and suggestions for making and decorating the Candy Coffin Gift Box

  • Use two pieces of paper, one for the drawer and one for the sleeve. A good paper size to learn the model is 6 × 6-inch (15 × 15 cm)
  • The finished boat-shaped drawer shows mainly one side of the paper with the reverse side color in the interior.
  • The finished sleeve shows both sides of the paper.
