Fabric-Covered Box: Before And After


My little girl received a birthday present back in March in this sweet Papyrus gift box. It's such a pretty box, but it got pretty beaten up by the USPS. So, we decided to recover it with fabric.



Shockingly (not), I covered the bottom of the box in Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric. The top is covered in a coordinating print from Moda. The top is covered in the method of wrapping a present, but for the bottom, I just wrapped a strip of fabric around it. I hemmed the bottom of the strip and covered the top of the strip in grosgrain ribbon.



I glued all the fabric to the box with Mod Podge, and I used Terrifically Tacky Tape to put on the ribbon. I'm using the box to store blank, ready-to-decorate cards.

Have a great night!

Is there anything a little Heather Bailey fabric won't make better?
