Start by fringing crepe paper streamers. Stack three or four rows of streamers together to make this go a bit faster. Your cuts should go about 3/4 of the way up the streamer. Once streamers are fringed, start with the bottom of the box. Glue on a piece of streamer that hasn’t been fringed. Then directly on top of that, glue on a piece of the fringed streamer.
Continue covering the bottom of the box by gluing on fringed streamers. When the bottom is covered, trim off any excess to create a clean edge around the bottom.
Next, add the fringed streamer to the sides of the box working in the same fashion. Continue adding the fringed streamers until you reach the top edge.
The lid is covered in the same way. However, before adding the streamers create a looped hanger on the top of the box with a piece of tape and twine.
Then fringe around it the same way you did the bottom of the box. Finally, glue on the fringe streamers around the rim of the lid starting at the bottom and working up. Finish with a narrower strip of streamers.
