okay so like 6 months ago i saved on my old shoebox from the trash with plans on dressing it up and turning it into something awesome. well i ended up just covering it with drop cloth fabric and then kind of forgetting about it. at the time i couldn't really decide on how i wanted to embellish it so i just filled it with junk and put it work.
well, i saw this Upcycled Kleenex Box from Southern Flair Crafts in the GYCO party a couple weeks ago and i knew that was how i wanted to finish my box. it's so similar to my rope containers i don't know why i didn't think of it before!
in the tute from Southern Flair Crafts, she covers the box with rope first then makes the liner. but since i already covered mine with drop cloth fabric i jumped right into the business of rope covering.
i started by glueing the end of the rope down one side of the box. this way the end of the rope isn't exposed on the top of the box and you can't really tell that there's a bump there after you wrap the rope over it.
and just keep wrapping and glueing your rope around the box.
