“So you see those vintage music boxes in the stores and never imagine that you could make one yourself. In fact, you can make your very own Christmas song music box quite quickly and easily, just by following a few steps.
Choose a Shape
The first thing you are going to need to do if you want to make your own Christmas song music box is decide what shape you want it to be. Typically we are used to seeing them in rectangle and square shapes but they can really be any shape that you want them to be.
There is also now much more technology that can go into a Christmas song music box than once before, as once we were only used to having to crank them by hand, now they are usually powered by electronic computer chips that are soldered to a miniature circuit board. Sound difficult? Don’t worry you don’t have to actually build this part you can but the part and use it to make your music box.
The next step in building your Christmas song music box is to decide on a music-producing device that plays the song of your choosing. You will want to be very careful when you make this decision, because this is going to be the most major part of the design of the music box.
Keep in mind that if you are building this Christmas song music box for someone else, you will want to choose their favorite song and not your own. After all the point here is that you are going to be pleasing them. If you are planning on the music box being a surprise, an easy way to find out what type of music they may like is by taking a sneak peak at their CD collection.
You can usually find music box kits that come with a set of instructions. This will make the entire process as easy as possible, and ensure that you come out of it all with the most beautiful music box.
Take a look around at a couple of the stores offering Christmas music boxes first before you start building your own so that you can get a better idea of what is out there and how to get started on your own.
The most important thing is that you are really putting your heart into it, and this is what is going to matter to the person receiving the music box, more than anything else.”
