Use the same paper, construct “bows” for the tops, which cascade down the sides of the box. In addition to the paper, you’ll need scissors and tape. Each piece of paper is applied using a 1 1/2- to 2-inch tape roll — a piece of tape secured to itself at both ends. (Double-sided tape can be used, but tape rolls give the best results.)

Box size: 4 by 4 by 3 inches. You will need: four 10-by-1 1/4-inch strips; four 11-by-1-inch strips; four 1 1/2-by-1/2-inch strips. Trim the ends of 10-inch strips into V shape. Center two strips on top of the box, and cross over with the remaining 2 strips.

Trim one end of each 11-inch strip into V shape; curl the other end into a circle that is about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place one of these strips on the left side of one crisscrossed pair already in place. Continue placing the others in a pinwheel fashion, circles abutting in the middle. Form 1 1/2-inch strips into circles, and tape inside each of the larger circles.
