i started covering some of my cheese

boxes and ,,,, duhhh !! Fair, I guess !

I do love the colors and pattern of the


On this one i used "MOD-PODGE'

to put the fabric on with.

It holds well and goes on white but dries


The texture does tend to ravel some and you need to use small sharp scissors to trim

close to the edge.

Be sure it is completely dried before trimming.

O.K.  HERE IT IS !!divider07_thumb[1]


Well.. here is my first one so you can be the judge.

I threw in a little "OLD-SOUL" DOLL.

I will be covering a few more with different fabrics.

So that will be all for tonight.

I love your covered box and I did make one with Americana print but can't remember if I used Mod podge but I liked the way it turned out. They are such fun to make and can't wait to see what you do next...Love the little doll next to her too. If I were the judge and giving you from 1 to would be a 12 :)
You did a good job
