How to build a treasure box
How to build a treasure box is a fun and easy building project for kids using our treasure box kit.
STEP 1 Take the first 2 nails and gently hammer the tips into the first of the front panels on the pre-marked dots.
STEP 2 Using one of the side panels, an adult will need to hold this in place against the front panel while you hammer the nails fully through.
STEP 3 Next, repeat this using the other side panel and back panel.
STEP 4 Using the last 2 nails, gently hammer the tips of the nail into the marked dots on the edge of the base border.
STEP 5 Take the bottom board and place it in position, then hammer the nails fully through.
STEP 6 Now take the first of the hinges, place on the back of the box and line-up with the pre-marked dots. Make sure the round part of the hinge is on the inside of the box (this stops the lid from flipping right back open, which can wear out the hinge).
STEP 7 Once in place and lined-up, take the screwdriver and screw and screws securely in place. Then repeat with the second hinge.
STEP 8 Give the box a sand to smooth any rough edges. STEP 9 Paint with your selected Valspar paint and allow to dry.
