The principle of making a casket

Step 1.

Scissors cut the discs into small pieces. If there is a strong cutter available – use it, otherwise your hands will numb and will be very sick. Advice from the author of the homemade: take the discs of good quality, and even better licensed, as cheap blanks will separate and crumble directly in your hands.

The smaller pieces you cut the discs, the more open the box will be. If there is patience and enough time, cut the blanks with a pattern or ornament, and the end result will impress you!
