Well we made up 4 yesterday. I made the cubes and Sarah cut and glued the pictures on from the toy cataloges. So far we have a horse, cat, doll bed and washing machine toy boxes.
They are cubes, each side 1 3/4 inches across. I tried to cut one down to a cerial box shape which didn't work too well. So I would still like to find a pattern that is cerial boxed shaped as they would take less room up.

Jo, I'm not sure exactly what you are doing, but what about these templates? Have you seen these already?

Oh cool! Thankyou! I will give them a go.
I am after plain boxes so that sarah can glue her own pictures on them. She wants it to be a toy shop. But I could try making those inside out so that the printing is inside the box and not showing.

You could always print one out on cardstock and use it as a template to trace out the others on blank paper so they would be plain. Just a thought if they didn't work out inside out.

Ok well I have developed one of my headaches so i have post poned it till tomorow. *sigh*

Tisha I am just making little boxes from light white card, like a dice. Then Sarah is cutting out and gluing pictures on them of whatever toy she wants the box to be off. I am planning to write 1$, $2, $3 on diffrent boxes. To make a toy shop. Then we can play shops.
