DECORATIVE KNOT FOR PAPERCRAFTING
Craft How-to: Sailor Knot Trinket Box
• Wooden box (we used Paradise Hill Designs 9" x 3.25" x 2" Rustic Desk Box,;)
• 1/4"-thick cotton kitchen twine
• Hot-glue gun, glue sticks
1.Measure and mark 1/2" in from each corner on the box top; use the ruler to pencil a rectangle connecting the points.
2.Starting from a corner, add a thin 2"–3" line of hot glue on pencil mark; press on twine. Continue gluing twine on mark a few inches at a time. Cut end and press both ends into glue to seal.
3.Cut four 3" lengths of twine and knot each; trim excess. Dab glue on corners of twine rectangle and adhere knots.
4.Starting from a corner, add a 2"–3" line of glue along box top edge; press on twine. Continue gluing twine around edge a few inches at a time. Repeat until edge of box top is entirely covered with rows of twine. Cut end and press both ends into glue to seal.
5.For handle: Cut three 24" lengths of twine; align and knot together at one end. Braid tightly into a 4" length. Knot and trim excess from both ends; dot ends with hot glue to prevent unraveling.
6.Measure and mark 2 points centered and 3" apart on box top (ours are 3" in from the sides and 1 1/2" from top and
bottom). Dab dime-size amounts of glue onto marks; adhere knotted ends of braid. Let dry.
7.Cut two 12" lengths of twine. Dab a 1/2"-thick circle of glue around one handle knot. Starting from inside handle, wind one piece of twine around knot, pressing into glue as you go. Press end into glue to prevent fraying. Repeat on other knot.
