@sam.stoinski:  Satin sounds great. I’ll be honest, I kind of copped out by the time I got to the card box, and just used wrapping paper. 😛  It looked like a child’s grade school project! Haha.  But go for the satin! I love that idea.

Satin is hard to work with as the edges unravel pretty quickly and there’s lots of loose strings to deal with. Depending on how you want to attach it, hot glue can also melt it and show through very easily. If you work it that all gluing is done from inside the boxes, it can work out OK,tho.

You should look around your hoouse and try out some different fabrics first before buying any, as you don’t want to use something that has too much ‘give’ or stretches.

I used a semi-shiney satin. The fabric I orginally used was more sheer and you could kinda see the box/fabric folded underneath it so I got new fabric that was thicker and less sheer. It took A LOT of patience though,! Every kind of glue I used seeped through the fabric onto my fingers. It took me about 3 hours but ended up turning out great. Just take your time and think things over very closely before you start cutting 🙂

*used and *how to. Dang auto correct. I just googled The topic, amd reviewed various recommendations. I would buy extra fabric, and make sure you have pretty sharp scissors so the material doesn’t fray. Also, start on it when you aren’t in a hurry. I would recommend you get a box cutter, a glue gun, and some of the spray Elmer’s glue.
