Expressions Of Love: Part Four

Started with lots of sketching and visualizing how it could be and that made the making easier. The essential things that I used in the making were greyboard, PVA glue, scalpel, ruler and buckrum.

Attaching the frame to the box

Measured and had all the pieces cut out manually

The base

The cover

Sandpaper the edges

Bought a black photoframe for £1 and used the frame as the top of the box cover.

Added 2 layers of white mounting board as borders

Covering the bottom with greyboard and buckrum
