First, create the base by laying 8 sticks side by side to form a square. At the top of the sticks around 1/2 stick widths down glue one stick across them all. Build up the box by layering up the sticks on each side.
Gluing each stick down as you lay it. Use 44 sticks in total (11 each side) but you can continue layering if you’d prefer to make it deeper.
For the lid Lay 5 sticks side by side. About one stick width from the end, lay one stick across them all and secure with glue. Do the same at the other end.
To strengthen the lid, cut a stick to width size turn the lid upside down and glue the stick across the middle. Now paint the box and lid and let it dry.
Now glue a large button, gems in the centre of the lid for the handle then decorate with Buttons, Gems. That’s it pretty stick box is ready!
