Introduction

Tips: Lined specimen boxes are available at hobby stores.

Materials

  • Specimen box
  • Wrapping paper
  • Rubber cement
  • Scissors
  • Utility knife
  • Rubber insects and pens

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To cover the box: Remove glass; set aside. Lay a piece of wrapping paper (a few inches bigger than the box on all sides) right side down; coat the top of the box lid with rubber cement; place it face down on paper.

  2. Step 2

    Cut away the center of the paper by running a utility knife along the opening. Wrap the paper over the sides of the lid, affixing with rubber cement; cut away extra.

  3. Step 3

    Replace glass. Affix labels with names and fill the boxes with rubber insects and pens.
