Boom Box

Move to the rhythm of your heart beat

Done in 20mins
Skill level basic

Own your craft and create your own boom box from a cardboard roll. Enjoy the nice sound. My recommendation: Urban Black Music, a fusion of authentic South African Amapiano, springles of afrobeat and classical influence!

How you make it

Cut a slit the size of your phone in the middle of the cardboard roll

Paint the paper tube or make a graffiti on it to give it some character

Glue two lids to the bottom of your cardboard roll that your boom box will be able to stand on its own

Design your boom box

I cut out some pictures of a boom box in a magazine and glued them on the boom box to give it a face lift.

Brand your boom box with your name or a motto you identify with to personalise it to you

Put some music on your phone and place it in the boom box
