For me, it is all in the details – pretty fabrics and sweet packaging put a smile on my face. In these fabric covered berry boxes, I have combined pretty fabric scraps with wooden berry boxes. This is a quick, no sew, crafty project that can be completed in under 10 minutes.
I had a stack of wooden berry baskets on my desk left over from Christmas (I had used them to hold gifts of cookies), when I was inspired to cover them with fabric. Berry boxes are a good size to hold cookies, small sewing supplies, or any other small items. Perfect for organising supplies or for presenting a gift.
If you would like to make some, all you need is
- wooden berry box (available on Amazon and big craft stores)
- fabric scraps, measuring approx 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches
- double sided adhesive paper (also known as JAC paper)
Simply measure the sides of the box. Cut a piece of double sided paper that is slightly longer than the side so that you can tuck the end of the fabric under the box. Adhere the paper onto the back of the fabric scrap. Cut to size. Peel off the paper backing, and stick the fabric to one of the sides. Press gently to make sure that it is well adhered. Repeat until all four sides are covered with fabric.
The fabric used in this project is Tilda Circus which will be available in April 2017 . I was lucky enough to receive some pre-release fabric from the Australian distributor, Two Green Zebras. I have made a couple of sewing projects with this sweet range that I will be sharing over the coming weeks, so stay tuned! If you follow us on instagram, you may see some sneak peaks.
