Comments:Tomoko Fuse recommends A4 size paper for this type of box, but larger or smaller sheets may be used, depending on the size of the image to be inserted in the frame. Any rectangular sheet with the same height-width ratio as A4 paper will work fine.
For this set of boxes, the image inserted in the picture frame lid of each box was cut from a sheet of the same scrapbook paper used for other parts of that box.
Two of the lids shown here have been decorated with origami butterflies, attached by tucking part of the butterfly under the frame, with a dab of glue.
Optional decorative liners have been added to the bases of these boxes, making them very sturdy for everyday use.
