Materials

Instructions

  1. Find the top of your cardboard box.
  2. Fold the flaps along the perforations and using your craft scissors, cut along the perforated lines. Repeat for all four sides.
  3. Secure the bottom of the box by closing the flaps and using your glue gun to hold them in place. Use a generous amount as you will be putting some weight on the bottom of the box.
  4. Next, you are going to cover the inside and part of the outside of your box with fabric. Measure the length and width of the bottom and the sides of the box.
  5. Cut 1 piece of fabric for the bottom and 4 pieces for each side of the box. Using your glue gun, glue each piece of fabric in place, gluing every 4”-5” to keep the fabric in place.
  6. Now you are going to cut the fabric which will cover the top 1/3 of the outside of the box. Measure around the entire box. This is how long your piece of fabric will be, plus you need to add ½”. Whatever the 1/3 measurement for the height of the fabric is, add 1-2” to that.
  7. As a guide, I made a mark on the box with a pencil where the fabric would start. Start about 3” to the right of one of the corners and using your glue gun, secure fabric in place, gluing every 4”-5” to keep the fabric in place. When you come around to the place where you started, fold the fabric over the top of the box and secure fabric in place, gluing every 4”-5” to keep the fabric in place.
  8. Open your package of sisal rope and take off the masking tape at the end. Starting about 1” to the right of one of the corners and using your glue gun, add a generous amount of glue and hold the end of the rope in place. Hold for at least 10-15 seconds.
  9. Wrap around the corner and repeat about every 2”-3”, until you have used all the rope. To avoid burning your fingers, we used an old spoon to hold the rope in place until the glue dried.
