ALL FROM FROM AN EMPTY BOX
From an empty cereal box, you produce some silk handkerchiefs or other objects.
Remove the top of a cereal box. Cut a neat hole in the back of the box. With some light cardboard, make a triangular box (Fig.1). Attach the secret box over the hole in the cereal box with tape or glue (Fig. 2). The secret box hinges into the box or out of it.
