This was a fun little project. I've been seeing these storage boxes made out of simple cardboard boxes on Pinterest. So I decided to try it out for myself. I found some cute gray polka-dot fabric at a local thrift store. And I had some pretty purple ribbon on hand to go with it.
The supplies I used: a simple cardboard box, fabric, ribbon, scissors, hot glue gun, and a tape measure. First I measured and cut four rectangle pieces, one for each side of the box.
The next step was to hot glue the fabric onto the box. I started by gluing the bottom edges then flipped the box over to glue the top. I only put the fabric about two inches into the inside of the box because the box is going to be filled with stuff anyway. No need to waste fabric.
Then I hot glued ribbon on each corner of the box and also ran the ribbon along the rim.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first try.
