Fabric covered boxes

You will need a sturdy box with lid, fabric and spray adhesive or fabric glue. Fabric is easier to use than paper, as it is pliable and fits into corners more neatly than stiff paper. It also needs to be thick enough to disguise the original box, but not so thick as to make a lumpy finish. Lay your box on the fabric to determine how much you need (allow 1/2-inch overlap all around). Cut two pieces of fabric -- one to cover the outside of the box (including lid) and one to cover the inside. Fold the 1/2-inch hems over and press to crease; unfold. Fold fabric into corners again to determine fit; trim if necessary. Fold the corners over at 45 degrees and press; unfold. Cut the corner diagonally along the crease. Lightly apply glue to the inside of the box. Press the fabric on firmly, smoothing out any wrinkles. Let dry and repeat for the outside of the box.
