Make the Tell-Tale Heart -Part 3


In this part of the tutorial we make the box for the heart to sit in!

Part 1 (the beginning) of this tutorial is here



Illustration of the box

Here is the box we made out of cardboard. You can probably use an already made box that is about this size. Check to see if the heart on its tube will fit comfortably in it. Otherwise let's make this box.


Cut and tape the six pieces

You can simply cut the six pieces of cardboard the glue and tape them together.


The top part is hinged

Use strips of tape on the inside and the outside to create the hinge for the lid.


Paint it

Paint the inside of the box a light color.


MEasure with the heart

Place your heart and tube onto the bottom of the box and trace the circle. Then cut out that circle but about an inch smaller so you can glue the two together.


Cut a hole

Here is the hole.


Add decorations

Go ahead and decorate the box any way you want!


Add a handle

Add a duct tape handle. It is simply tape folded on itself a few times then taped to the box.


Add blood spatter

Splatter blood on the inside of the box.
