Discovering 2014: Felt Gift Boxes

 Discovering 2014 is a personal goal to complete a daily project throughout the year!

Today’s project was a Felt Gift Box. I used these box top and box bottom templates from How About Orange’s tutorial. My felt was cheap soft felt stiffened using Martha Stewart Water Resistant Fabric Stiffener. While it did the job, it left streaks and next time I make a felt gift box I’ll just spring for the higher quality thick felt instead.

Cut out the templates and tape them to your felt. Cut the felt along the template borders. Fold the seams in the appropriate locations.

Hot glue your triangular flaps inside the larger side flaps.

That’s it! Put the lid on the box and you’re all done.

Tomorrow’s project is a Mason Jar Sewing Kit!
