DIY Card box PIP

Postby aeh » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:38 pm

Boxes: work!
Fabric: Hobby Lobby
Misc: Quilt batting, iron-on bonding strips, spray adhesive, iron, velcro, tacky glue
Ribbon: Michaels
Flower edge: Joann Fabic

This was pretty difficult--and took about 5 hours. My mom helped out a lot. We wrapped each box with quilting batting, then wrapped each box gift wrap style with fabric. We used iron-on bonding strips (used to hem pants) to keep the fabric held in place. We velcro'd the middle box to the bottom box, so you can easily get in it to fix any jams that may happen with the cards. I plan to put a bow on top, with 2 white pencil starfish tied in it, but those haven't come in yet.
