DIY Maven Last week we made a no-sew fabric gift envelope. Today, we’re going to make no-sew gift boxes, and they’re super cute too! Supplies for this project are minimal, which we LOVE, and include the following:
- Mod Podge
- sponge brush
- poster board
- fabric of the light-weight variety (another great project to use up stash!)
- sharp scissors
- straight edge/ruler
- this TEMPLATE
Step 1: Print the template. Then cut a piece from the poster board slightly larger than the image from the template. (I chose to print the image onto heavy card stock to make it more durable. This isn’t necessary, but if you have card stock on hand, I suggest you use it.)DIY Maven
Step 2: Slather a generous amount of Mod Podge on one side of the poster board using the foam brush. (My Podge is getting goopy!)
Step 3: Place the poster board, sticky side down, onto a piece of fabric. Let the Mod Podge dry COMPLETELY.
Step 4: Place your template on the poster board and trace around. ALSO, using a sharp pencil, pierce the slot lines and trace their position them as well.
