I found this while cruising blogs, looking for freebies. These boxes look gorgeous, and they don't look that hard to make. Couldn't you see making one of these, mounting a piece of stitching on top, and then having a lovely box to store things in? Wouldn't it be cute to store Halloween ornaments in, then leave out on display for the fall? Or a box for storing mittens and gloves in the off-season? Or WIPs? Or UFOs? We even have a special set of boxes that we use at Christmas that we reuse. This would be a good way to do those--once you get over the initial embarrassment of asking people to please return the box their gift is coming in, it's not so bad, LOL. Or you could give it to the recipient and let them start the proud, cheap tradition of hoarding gift boxes.
I have a paper box to use for the box. I ordered bookbinding glue to put on the fabric. I now have to choose a design to mount on top, and then pick fabric.
