I got this from another how-to project, but i wanted to make my own that has more detail on it.
~1~ Get 2 tampon boxes from a local pharmacy.
Take out the tampons.
~2~ With one of the boxes, cut off the top flaps that allow you to open the box.
~3~ With the second box, cut off the bottom flaps. Leave the top flaps alone!
~4~ Now you have 1 box without top flaps and 1 box without bottom flaps
~5~ With your marker, draw a line a little bigger than the tampon on the box that has the bottom flaps. (no top flaps)
~6~ Cut along the line and then straight down until you reach the bottom.
~7~ With the box that has no bottom flaps, cut up along the corners at the bottom of the box.
Then cut triangular shapes like in the picture.
~8~ Take your glue stick (or white liquid glue) and glue the part you've just cut.
~9~ Now stick the box that has no bottom with the triangular sides, into the box with the little flap (has a bottom).
~10~ For added renforcement, tape along the sem where the 2 boxes meet.
~11~ TADA!! Your done. If you want to, you can cover it with paper or fabric (like I did) or leave it how it is **not recommended( it looks ugly)**
