Hi friends! Have you ever wanted to decorate plain boxes for pretty storage? Today I am going to show you how to make a box to hold cards at a wedding, shower or graduation. It is a good idea so cards do not get lost in a pile or gifts or misplaced. Even if you do not have one of the occasions coming up you can still use the techniques I will show you to cover other boxes with fabric for gift giving or storage and if you are anything like me you’ve got boxes.
One of my favorite writers, Erma Bombeck, said “I never met a box I didn’t like” or maybe it was “She never met a box she didn’t like” and she was talking about a crazy relative, either way the shoe-box fits! Watch the video to see how to cover one with fabric!
1. Open the flat. Use the box as a template to cut the fabric, I give 2″ of extra fabric all the way around. Save your scraps for making rosettes.
2. Spray the “outside” of the box with spray adhesive and press to the wrong side of the fabric.
3. Trim around tabs. Leave extra fabric around flaps and use double-sided tape to adhere the excess fabric to the inside of the box.
4. Fold the box back up and decorate it!
I hope you enjoyed this project. Wedding card boxes can be very expensive so it’s nice to make something classy and save some cash while matching the décor of the party. You can also use the satin fabric to make chair bows or covers or sew them into sweet little favor bags (check out this tutorial for tips on sewing on satin fabric!) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
