We've seen a card box made of LEGO before, but we've never seen a card box that is a huge LEGO. That is until OBT member intlulu made that a reality and was kind enough to share how you can make it a reality as well…
We, two LEGO fiends, have decided to make a LEGO ring box for our ring bearer to carry. I proposed making the card box of LEGO too, but my partner thought it would be too heavy to deal with, so we compromised and I made this box to look like one big LEGO brick.
Here's how to make it…
Using a box cutter, cut a card slot in the side of an oversized shoe box.
Cut heavy cardboard tubes for the top. I got lucky and didn't have to cut any as I'd just purchased all the votive holders, which used heavy cardboard tubes to keep the glass from breaking.
Stretch a piece of duct tape over the top of each tube, press tightly onto the edges of the cardboard to seal. Trim off excess tape with scissors.
Seal the box with masking tape. Wrap tape around edges of the card slot to smooth the edges.
Lay out the placement of the tubes evenly on the top of the box. Glue the tubes to the top of the box. Glue-all worked fine, but I'm sure a glue gun would work well too. Weight down the tubes with something heavy until the glue sets firmly.
Using 3-D paint, write LEGO on the top of each tube. I also used it to write CARDS on the front to make it really obvious what it was to be used for.
And finally, Step 7:
Spray paint the heck out of it using the wedding color of your choice! I wasn't as careful with the taping as I should have been, so I may need to glue a bit down on that left front corner, but I'm happy enough with the result. Were I doing it again, I think I'd find a different cardboard box without a separate lid so the sides of the LEGO would be smoother. In any case, I like it anyway!
