Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade   will show you, step by step, how to make this cheerful and girlish lunch box.


Materials Needed

– recycled box
– cotton cloth
– pen
– craft glue
– scissors
– tulle pieces
– bead
– needle and thread
– auto-adhesive crystal bead


Step 1

Cut 3 squares of tulle…

… place one on top of the other…

… and sew the bead on the middle…

… like this.


Step 2

Place the cloth over the box lid and mark the contour.

Cut it out…

… like this.

Sew the tulle flower on the middle of it…

… like this.


Step 3

Remove (as much as you can) the label on the lid, then add glue on it…

… like this…

… and place the decorated cloth on it.


Step 4

Now, that the lid is ready, is time to decorate the box.

Place the cloth over it and measure the height.

Cut a strip that measures that height.

Apply a layer of glue on it…

… and cover the box. I made some folds on the front to make it less plain.

Take the auto-adhesive crystal…

… and use it to highlight the folds.

Now the decorated lunch box is ready.

Now you have no ordinary lunch box.  You have a very girly and fun lunch box that no other person will have.  Enjoy it!!
