For today’s post I wanted to share with you a easy craft. DIY: fabric box, this is an easy project that can be decorated with your favorite fabrics and accents.
What you Need:
What you want to do now is take your fabric and wrap it around the box. What I did once I figured out where I wanted the fabric placed. I put a dab of glue to hold it. Next I started pulling the fabric around the sides of the box and cut where I needed to. For me it was easier to start with the top of the box first. I used scrap fabric I had laying around the house. Once I glued the fabric all around the bottom part of the box. I then started pulling the fabric over the top part of the box. Gluing as I went along. It can be a little tricky but if you take your time it will turn out great. Don’t mind any overlapping you may have with the fabric you can over it with the fabric you place on the inside of the box.
Now its time to place fabric on the inside. I used a fat quarter for the inside fabric and started gluing just like I did with the outer fabric.
The zebra print fabric on the inside is the fat quarter I used. If you can tell I didn’t use fabric on the bottom inside. I thought the tissue paper would be a nice effect. I did glue the tissue paper a little bit to keep it in place. Once the box was all done I put the items I purchased for my daughter’s teacher inside, along with a card and there you have it. A nice decorative box. With a flower accent I purchased at the dollar store to go on top of the outside of the box. Easy fun and personal. Which to me are the best types of gifts to receive.
