TCrafting A Cute Kimono Girl

 flavor. I happily ate the two com. I also include sleeve
bags in the box, and then the empty box sat on my desk for a couple of weeks because it looked like I should make something with it. So, here’s what I came up with: a kimo- no girl.
Take the kimono piece
variations and how to make this without the Pocky box.
3 Measure 2 inches up from the bottom edge on the right side. Draw a line from the
first scored line to this point. Cut the triangular piece off. Do the same on the left side.
Don’t forget, if you make some, send a photo to joy- If I share it here, I’ll send you a Ben Franklin Crafts gift card!
Wrap around the box with the 2 1/2-inch left section overlapping on the top. Tape the 3/8-inch
strips along the angled lines to create the neckline. Trim off excess at the top and bot-
tom. Take the 2-by-3 1/2- inch cream/beige cardstock and slide this piece under
the kimono neckline and tape in place to hide the box front. Place the 1 1/2-
inch strip just under where the neckline meets in the middle and wrap around
the box for the obi.
cardstock (6 3/8-by-11 inches) and place on the score board with the 11-inch length aligned to the top edge, print side down. Score at these points, starting from the right edge: 2 1/2, 3 1/2, 7 and 8 inches
Take the 4-by-4-inch cream/
 beige cardstock. Trace and cut out a 3-inch circle for the face. Take black cardstock and trace and cut out the hair pattern. Take the other black cardstock and trace and cut out just the top half of the hair pattern. Place the face behind one of the hair pieces and tape in place from the back. Take the other half hair piece and place behind, aligning with the first piece. Tape pieces together.
7 For the sleeves, score 1/4 inches
along the 6-inch length of one side. Fold the sleeve in half without creasing in the middle. Snip at the center of the 1/4-inch scored line. Overlap the 1/4-inch sec- tions and tape together, creating a side panel. On the other open side of the sleeve, tape the two sides together, 1 inch up from the bottom.
6 Use marker to draw eyes. Add pink circles on the cheeks. Tape the head/face
to the front flap of the box, just above the neckline.
