Steps To Make A Decorative Craft Using Soap Paper

Step 1- Cut the soap box

Soap box diy craft

Let’s start by decorating the soap box. Get a huge soap box, ideally a pack for 2-3 soaps. This is an ideal sized box which will turn into a cute little storage box. Take the soap box and measure it using the ruler.   Open up the box and make markings 1.5 inches inwards from the corners.  Draw the line from the folding marks to the bottom of the box. Make the markings on both sides of the box and cut the box from the folding to the bottom.

With this, you will get both the sides trimmed and open. Keep the front and back of the box as it is. Now you will get 4 different parts of the box which you need to paste these parts using glue.

Step 2- Give the box a finishing look

Once you stick the bottoms, trim the extra paper in the front folding of the box. This way, the length of the folding will be equal from all sides. Now, measure the width of the top of both the sides. Mark the measurements and draw it on the main front folding of the box. Keep the folding of the same length and draw a line in centre using ruler and pencil.

With the help of scissors, trim the bent top of the front folding and with a cutter, slightly mark and engrave the ling drawn by ruler. This will make all 4 sides equal and easily foldable which turns into a cool storage bag! This will give you a wide frame shaped bag.

Step 3- Stick the sides of bag

Soap box bag craft

Give the back opening of the box a little building look with the help of scissor and to attach all the sides, using glue. On the edges of all the 4 sides, apply some glue and stick the corners. Also use a packaging tape to seal all the sides. Now, just the top of the bag is open and all other sides are sealed. To make a handle of the bag, trim a small space form the top of the box using cutter. Make 2 small rectangular spaces which appear on the centre when you close the box.

Step 4- Decorate and cover the box

DIY Soap box bag craft

Anything looks incomplete if proper finishing and coating is not done. Thus, to get a beautiful covering, choose a bright colour paper. Take the measurements of the printed paper to cover the sides of the box. Stick the printed paper on the box and paste the printed paper on all the sides. Manage to cut the perfect sizes of the paper similar to the box measurements. On the top of the box with which the box opens and closes, we will apply colour paper while on the sides, we will use printed paper.

With the help of cutter, cut the small rectangular spaces on the colour paper which we made previously on the box.

Step 5- Make the handle of the bag

Soap box recycled craft

To make small and pretty storage bag, we will need beautiful handles. Cut the handles in a magnet shape and with the same measurement of the 2 rectangle spaces we made on the box. Make 2 same sized shapes with printed paper while one large sized handle with colour paper. The small printed papers will be used to top and decorate the colour paper handle.

On both the sides of colour paper handle, stick the small printed paper handles we made. Bend the ends of the colour paper handle, insert the handle in both the rectangle spaces and apply glue to the folded ends. Stick these ends with the top of the box and let it get dry!

Step 6- Give finishing touches to the bag

As we all know, the bags have beautiful buckles or buttons and so, we too will prepare a beautiful closing buckle for our small bag. Just like the handle, prepare a magnet shaped handle, but of small size. Stick this small paper on the front of the bag where we have a bulging opening. In the centre, stick a huge pearl which will work as a buckle for this small bag!

Once you cut the rectangular cardboard, draw a design on the board. You can choose any of the ethnic, floral, peacock design which looks fabulous. Here we are using a beautiful peacock style design. Make the design and draw two lines on the top and in the bottom which will be used to display the name. Cut the entire design with the help of a cutter.

Step 2- Make the nameplate with thermocol sheet

Nameplate Décor DIY Craft

The name plate must be thick and embossed. For this purpose, we will use the thermocol sheets. Get a piece of thermocol sheet and draw the same design of the nameplate on the thermocol sheet. You can use the transparent paper or can manually draw the design. Now, with the help of cutter, cut the thermocol sheet design.

Make 2-3 same design in small sizes on the thermocol and cut it with a cutter.

Step 3- Attach the thermocol sheet and design

Now it’s time to attach the thermocol sheet with the design to give it an embossed and thick texture. Stick the designed cardboard on the thermocol sheet using glue. Press the design and let it stick properly.

Once the design gets dry, cut the thermocol sheet framed with the design with a cutter. Maintain the shape of the design and trim out the unnecessary edges. You can also use ruler to get perfect measurements and cut.

Step 4- Make the second side of the design

On one side of the thermocol sheet you have already pasted the design. Now it’s time to paste the design on second side. For this, place the thermocol design on a cardboard paper, trace the design and cut the design with the help of cutter.

Take some glue, apply it on the cardboard design and paste it in the back of the thermocol sheet. Now we have a design pasted on both the sides of the thermocol.

Step 5- Design the shapes

Nameplate DIY Décoration

We need to give a beautiful look to the designs we shaped. Also thermocol will not absorb the colour properly and this is why, we will use cotton bandages. In a bowl, pour some glue and with a brush, apply it on the designs. Stick the cotton bandages on the designs. Trim the edges and give a perfect finishing to the design. Apply the cotton bandages on all the designs.

Now, colour the design. Apply colour on the cotton bandage which will thoroughly absorb the colour. Paint all the designs with different and complementing shades and let the designs get dry.

Step 6- Colour and design the nameplate

Nameplate DIY Room Décor

Get a tissue paper and paste it on the nameplate. With the help of a brush, apply glue and stick the layers of tissue paper on it. Enhance this layer to give it a thick look. When the glue dries off, apply paint to the nameplate. Colour the entire object with paints and you can apply double coats to get a smooth and fine look.

While the colour on the nameplate gets dry, stick up the designs. Keep the largest design first and then stack up the other designs on the basis of size. Use glue gun to paste the designs.

Step 7- Decorate the nameplate and design

Now it’s time to use the golden lace to cover the sides of the design. Apply some glue on the sides and stick the golden lace on the sides of all the designs. This will give a glittery and perfect finish to the designs and colours. Also stick this golden lace on the side of nameplate.

Use the decorative beads and stones to make the design and nameplate more attractive. On the edges of the top most design, apply some glue and stick the stone chain. In the middle of the design, stick drop shaped stones while frame the design with beads chains. Frame all the designs from top to bottom with golden beads which will give the design a perfect finish and embossed glitter look! Stick the glitzy stones in the gaps which will get highlighted and shine.

Step 8- Paste the design on nameplate and decorate the nameplate

Nameplate DIY Wall Décor Craft

Once we get the design completely ready with laces, stones and colours, paste it on the nameplate. Stick it using glue and let it dry. Now it’s time to get the name on the nameplate. For this, get a cardboard printed with ‘my home’ or any name you want. Get some clay and soften is with your hands. Roll this clay to make letters and apply this rolled clay on the cardboard.

Stick all the clay letters exactly on the cardboard and give it an interesting look. Now colour these letters which you prepared with clay. You can choose different shades and also use 2-3 colours to give it a natural impact!

Prepare such 6-9 inches long wires and tie these aluminium wires while wrapping them with a single aluminium wire. Soften these wires with the help of pliers. Prepare a shape of a bent stem and fix it in the middle of the stones.

Now, dab the newspaper strips into the plaster of Paris mixture and start sticking it to the base of the stem. Continue while covering the aluminium wires and branches. Wrap the aluminium wires entirely by the pop sipped newspaper sheets.

Step 4- Make more branches with clay
