Can you post pics?  I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible!

Is it to easy to say, just put the blue fabric over the red fabric.  Then add a ribbon or moss or  something decorative to over the edges where the fabrics meet.

I think it would be possible. Maybe you can foldover your fabric and stitch or use fabric glue so there is not rough edges or fraying and then just glue it over the red velvet. As long as your blue fabirc is thick enough so the red doesn’t show through. This is probably what I’d try to do. You’re fabric doesn’t necessarily have to be under the “box” like the velvet is.

I tore apart an old jewelry box for my daughter that had red velvet once.  The glue was really in there, so I used a very thin layer of foam and then put new fabric so that it wouldn’t show the olg glue lines.  It absolutely can be done!

I think if you follow Querida’s advice, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Thats a beautiful box!  I like how you didn’t go traditional and used that instead! Great idea!

I love the box!  I have been searching for something for our rings, we don’t have a ring bear but we are having the bridal party carry them and I am trying to figure out if we want to do something “different” or just have then rings in their little boxes!

I think the spray adhesive might work too, depending if you can or can not remove that material

Oh my goodness, that is gorgeous! *note* the box is so small, and no one in the congregation will notice that the inside/top is red, so you don’t even have to switch it if you don’t REALLY want to!
