These projects are for your personal use only and may not be republished or copied.

Materials Needed:
  • Wooden boxes, any size
  • Printed fabrics - cotton or other thin fabrics are best.
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Decoupage clear coat medium or Elmer's glue and Clear coat varnish.
  • Scissors
  • Accessories like buttons, flowers, ribbon, lace, pearls, etc... (optional)

Project Instructions:

  1. Paint your wooden box in the color of your choice or leave it natural if desired. Let dry.
  2. Cut out designs from the fabric of your choice.
  3. Decide where you want to place each cut out piece.
  4. Then carefully attach the fabric pieces onto the box with a little elmer's glue.
  5. With a paint brush, completely cover each fabric piece with decoupage clear coat or elmer's glue. (Make sure to saturate the fabric with medium/glue and brush it completely over the edges of the fabric and onto the wooden box.)
  6. Let dry completely.
  7. If you used decoupage clear coat medium, you can brush over the whole box again to give the whole box a varnish seal. If you used elmer's glue to decoupage the fabric, Brush on a light coat of varnish over the whole box to seal it.
  8. Then glue on any special accessories like ribbon, buttons, pearls, etc..

Gift Ideas:
Make a box to give to a bride, graduate, new mother, or friend.
Decorate the box in wedding colors, school colors or other themes and put special treasures from the occasion in the box to create a special keepsake holder and gift.
Also great for jewelry, trinkets, recipe cards, seed packets, small change, and more. Enjoy using your treasure boxes!
