Put your papercraft skills to the test with this retro caravan gift box! The sunroof can be opened to conceal a little gift inside, or be glued shut to create your own desk ornament! Our designer has crafted the caravan with summery yellow and blue patterned papers, but you could change the colour scheme to match your craft room or your caravan if you own one! This caravan appeared in issue 183 of Cardmaking & Papercraft.
To create this caravan gift box, simply download the template (see below) and follow our handy steps for perfect results. Our designer suggests using wet glue to attach the tabs together, so that you can move them to get them to stick in the desired location and then hold in place until the glue dries.
