Fabric Covered Box

By:

Don't spend money on impersonal gift wrapping. Instead, make your own handmade gift box from Candace Jedrowicz - it's a great way to show you care. This Fabric Covered Box is a great way to recycle a chocolate box - no need to throw it away.

Fabric Covered Box
 

Materials:

  • A cardboard box (I used a 6″ x 6″ chocolate box)
  • Enough fabric to cover the top and bottom halves of the box including outside edges
  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Glue
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • 1″ or 2″ foam brush to spread the glue
  • Matte gel medium
  • Glass blobs for feet
  • Glitter glue
  • 10″ of 14 gauge wire
  • Large accent bead with a hole large enough to fit the wire through
  • Tulip Beads in a Bottle (I used pink pearl and copper metallic)

Instructions:

  1. Mark a random squiggly pattern to cut and shorten the sides of the box top.Cut along pattern line. (You don’t need to do this if your box top sides are already short.) Cover inside and outside of both halves with gel medium. Let dry.

  2. After you have measured enough fabric to cover the box top, cut out the corners of the material so there will be no overlap when you cover the sides.Spread an even coat of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion over the material.

  3. Smooth the material on to the box top and down over the sides. Don’t try to fold it under, just make sure it’s secured to the card board.Cover the box bottom. You may fold the material over the edges to the inside of the box bottom. Allow both halves to dry.

  4. Cover the inside bottom with decorative paper or whatever you like. Decorate inside the box top, but don’t cover the inside walls with additional paper, as it will affect the fit.
     
  5. Decorate the raw edge of the box top with glitter glue. Allow to dry. Glue the glass glob feet on with Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue. Let dry.
