Repurposed Wooden Boxes Idea



 
 
For Christmas I bought some stars and Santas that were packed in these small and cute plywood boxes. The minute I saw them I knew they were up to a change.
 
What I did. I chose beautiful fabric and a decorative velvet ribbon.
 

I measured the little squares and cut the fabric accordingly.

 
 
Glued the bottoms with white glue and applied the fabric pieces.
 
 
 
Applied glue on the sides of the box and glued the ribbon too.
 
 \
 
When it was finished drying I added the birdies.
 
 

I could think of tons of ways to use these: trinket, jewelry / office supplies holders, fun to keep sewing supplies in; especially cute if you are a miniature fan so you can add some toys here.

Wonderful!!! It looks so inviting, the stuff in those beautifully embellished boxes! I'm going to keep this idea to make for my own craft space.
Have a nice day,

The boxes look lovely repurposed. The arrangement of fabric cut outs makes the box very appealing.

These boxes look much better now. What a great idea! I love the birdies sitting on the edge. :-)

Such a clever idea! I'll have to look a little more closely at the packaging of my parcels from now on :)
