For the past 2 weeks I've been sewing and not spending much time doing crafts. Today I decided to re-post a project I did for my birthday last year. Enjoy!

Supplies Needed:
Container (Shoe box/hat box)
Spray Glue
Glue Gun

Paper (2 different colors)
Double sided tape


Measure box (My box: 40 inches x 4.5 inches)

Use measurements to trace and cut fabric

Spray glue on box (do a section at a time) and slowly lay fabric over entire box.


Use the glue gun to glue ribbon border on the bottom and top of box
(I was a little sloppy with the cutting part, oops! If you do this, just use thicker ribbon to cover this up better.)



For the tags: Use X-Large Puncher for back piece.


I use Print Shop to design but you can use Microsoft word too.
Make sure the size it prints out will fit within the circle
not be cut off once you punch it out.
(This step might be trial and error, but you'll get it)

Tip:In Print Shop, use small round sticker template!


Use double sided tape or any adhesive
you prefer to glue tags together


Use glue gun to glue tags to box
Tips: Be creative how you place the tags to box

I added some tulle material inside the box, tissue paper or decorative shredded just makes it look nice.


((I save my cards))

This is one of my favorites, it was from
my first birthday as his wife :-)


You can also use box as keepsake box to store
the cards you got at that event!

Keeping up with current events and wondering
 "What does a government shutdown" mean?

A government shutdown occurs when a government discontinues providing services that are not considered "essential." Typically, essential services include police, fire fighting, armed forces, utilities and corrections.

I had to look it up for myself, cause I was wondering what that meant!
