i like it… did the boxes come in black already or did you have to cover/paint them ?
how did you cover them? i have boxes, but not sure how to cover!
You did a great job!!
thanks ya’all 🙂
I bought the boxes and they were plain brown cardboard looking from Jo-Ann’s.
I used spray glue to paste the fabric to the box and I made sure to smooth it as I went around.
Make sure to cut the hole for the cards first!!! I made one for my best friend and forgot to do it first and it was very difficult.
To make sure the fabric looked smooth around the rim of the lids, I cut about a one inch band of posterboard(it wasn’t long enough so I just taped two peices together) and then I wrapped the fabric on that with spray glue.
I glued the new fabric “bands” to the lid using carpenters glue and secured it with a grip tool. I also used that same glue to secure the top box to the bottom box’s lid.
Hope this helped!
