Foil gift wrap
For this educational toy, use a cardboard jewelry-box. Slightly enlarge templates, and trace shapes, composed together as you wish, onto heavy paper sized to box.
Cut out carefully, but do not remove shapes. Glue foil gift wrap over heavy paper, including cutouts. Once dry, cut out shapes again. Line bottom of box with patterned paper.
Cover with cut outs and their "frame." For lid, see Magnetic Skater. Seal with bookbinding tape.
