The weaving for the box with small circles is ordinary biaxial and not difficult. The pattern for the sides is the same as introduced in Woven Heart #008. The small circles are just added as an extra layer when weaving. The pattern for the lid is somewhat different as one set of strips is radiating from the centre and the other is a set of concentric rings. The bottom is easy as the circular pieces are just stacked.
Cut out the pieces. If using a cutting machine and the cut files included below you will get more pieces than you need. Look to the pattern above to identify which to use. You are of course free to make up your own colour combinations.
The pictures should explain the weaving process. The circular pieces all have the same radius. Thus they buckle on the inside near the base. Make small cuts and distribute the extra paper. To make sure that sides are vertical use a mold while weaving. After weaving fix with glue and add zig-zig strips. I used colours A and D. Add the upstand inside the box. At the bottom you add one of the narrow strips with notches, crease and fix inside the box.
Somewhat unusual weaving process. In principle you would not have to cut open the rings. But the thickness of the paper calls for a little extra and this is a simple way of solving that problem. The cut should be hitten on the rear side. Fix with glue. Score on the rear side along the lining circle. Crease. Crease also one of the strips with notches along the centre line, measure circumference on the box upstand, fix the strip circle with glue and add inside the lid to form the lid edge. The continuous part shall show and the crease should point downwards.
Stack the circular pieces, add also the inside lining. Fix with glue. Score along the circles on the rear side. Crease “upwards”. Add the very narrow paper strip inside. Fix to the box sides.
