My sister created this box as a gift for a friend’s child. You can never have enough storage, especially when it comes to toys. The best thing about making this is that you probably have a lot of the materials needed to make it already, plus the end result is a really thoughtful gift.
What we used:
An old storage box
Paint lying around the garage
Letters from Art&Hobby
Material for top (We got the material in Guineys)
Foam as filler available from any upholstery shop
One standard size paint brush- for painting the box
An artist paint brush- for the detail and the letters
Staple gun and staples (Can get in B&Q)
Level (Can get in B&Q)
Wood Glue (Can get in Dealz)
Pencil- to mark where the letters were going
Step 1) Give the box 3 coats of paint.
Step 2) Paint the letters and then glue them on.
Step 3) Use a level to make sure the letters are in line and measure the spacing between the letters to make sure the spacing at the bottom is even.
Step 4) Paint the pink border.
Step 5) We chose material based on the colours used on the box. (Light blue with the pink and green through it)
Step 6) Staple the foam to the lid as it’s the quickest option, alternatively it could be glued.
Step 7) Staple the fabric on top. You could add a button feature if you wish.
Step 8) Give to an adorable little child 🙂
A great gift idea, hopefully this provides you with some inspiration.
