another "proper" outfit

Hello friends! Today has been spent in much experimentation... I am working on putting together some tutorials, so I have spent today playing with certain techniques so I can share them with all of you.
But, never fear! I do actually have a project to share with you! *this wasn't the project I intended on sharing today, but that one never actually got done.... I kinda got side-tracked...*

If you remember a while back, I shared a Cricut cartridge box I had altered. *to see it, click here* Well, I was asked if I make all my boxes that fancy... the answer: NO!!! Some boxes are left plain, some boxes get a much simpler makeover with fabric or paper *on those, I usually don't even bother finishing the edges all nice... call me lazy, but there you go*, and every once in a while, when I am in the mood, I give one a proper outfit.

Today, I was in the mood. I went a lot more casual with this box.

I first covered the box with vinyl. This was an easy way to cover all the edges without getting bulky (which can happen with ribbon).

I hot glued the fabric directly onto the vinyl covered box. I frayed the edges of the fabric for a fun, carefree finished edge. The ribbon was glued to cover where the two fabrics overlap. I tied a little knot in the ribbon to dress it up. I thought about adding buttons or flowers or something, but since I know what I want this box for, I know I want it to store nicely, so I decided to keep it simple.
Here is the inside... *yes, there is a reason I have a million wooden spoons all colored and labeled... but that, dear friends, is for another post*

Have a fabulous day!
