Fabric Covered Wooden Box

Ever since I made the custom tea tray sets I've been looking for another opportunity to use self adhesive fabric, just because I found it so easy to work with. 

Well, I finally fuond the right project. We needed a gift box for a little girl and because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in any store, I decide to make one myself.

I bought a wooden box, plain but pretty inexpensive, and then splurged on the self adhesive fabric.

Covering the box with the fabric was pretty easy. The trickiest part were the metal clasp and hinges. I decided no to cut the fabric to shape beforehand, thinking it would probably be too hard to get the measurements exactly right. So I just covered the whole thing and the used an x-acto knife to trim the excess fabric.

I got the white wooden letter at the craft store and the lace came from my own stash. Everything was glued over the fabric.

Here it is, ready for wrapping:

Oh, and because I had enough leftover fabric, I also covered the inside of the box with it, to add a bit more of flair.

Overall, it was a very quick and fun project, and I still think self adhesive fabric is great. Though obviously you can always replicate the same effect with regular fabric and glue, with the self adhesive it comes together so much faster.
