Add dimensional fun to fingerpainting!
These origami-inspired boxes are made from sturdy cardstock and start out flat. After the boxes are painted, fold them along the crease marks and perforations to form a box. The box top snaps down to hold the contents in place, making the boxes perfect for holding small gifts.
Roylco Painting Boxes measure 16" (41 cm) diameter when flat. An idea guide is included.

Great fun project!
from South Charleston, OH
Comments about Roylco Painting Boxes:
This is a great project for my 8th grade art students. They learn the art of Zentangle and design the box as it is laid out flat. Then, folding it adds a new dimension. Keeps everyone motivated and requires attention to detail and patience.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Tricky at First, But Worth It!
from Durham, NC
I admit that these boxes are tricky to figure out at first, but they are worth it to me! My students love working on them and after they are transformed into a box, they love them even more! I work with second graders and have them paint the 12 colors of the color wheel using only the primaries into the 12 sections of the circle. We also work with tints and shades of these colors. When they are done painting I teach them in small groups how to pre-fold on all the lines (some get it and some don't), but then I fold the boxes for them. It takes me only a few minutes to fold a box. Some helpful hints are to make sure they decorate on the dull side (makes it easier to fold), and do not use the paper clips as spoken of in the directions - just do it with your hands and work your way around. The box will keep its shape enough after the first few sections that you don't need to worry about it falling apart. Also, remember the dotted lines are folded opposite of the indented folds. In origami terms, the indented folds are "mountain" folds and the dotted folds are the "valley" folds. I only have the students pre-fold the indented folds and I do the dotted folds when I form the box. Bottom line is, I think they are a fantastic and fun way to teach color wheel theory and mixing paint colors! I buy them every year!

Save yourself the trouble, DO NOT buy
This product is totally unusable. The directions for putting the box together are very unclear, and the video from Roylco is no help (it's poor quality and sped up so much you can't tell what's going on.)I've enlisted the help of several other people, and none of us could figure out how to get the box completely together. Also, the material isn't as sturdy as it looks in the picture. What a waste of money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
