Made w/plain rectangle hat boxes from Michael’s and 2 different fabrics from JoAnn’s. I used a mix of glue gun and glue dots (like the ones you’d use for scrapbooking.)
The hardest part was tucking the fabric inside of the slit (I cut the slit in the box before I put the fabric on. I’d recommend cutting the fabric over the slit in a shape like this with a straight line, stop a bit before you get to the edge of the rectangle, and make 2 slits to the corners kind of like this shape: >
< It helps fold the fabric smoothly on the corners of the rectangle. You can fold the triangles straight to the left and right inside the box, then the remainder straight up and down into the box. Hope that makes sense!
I cut a hole in the bottom on the top box and in the lid of the bottom box, so that the cards won’t just stay in the top box.
