Daily Special - Anything But Cards - Shaped Box Tutorial

Click Here for the Tutorial

Have you ever tried to apply scrapbook paper or a lining around a round or shaped container and it would turn out lumpy and gathered all over the place? Well . . .believe me, I have and Icould not figure out how to apply it without that happening. It would turn out so ugly that I had given up trying.

Well. . .after viewing a video on a craft tool I recently bought. . .well, I've discovered THE SECRET . .I'm sure this is old stuff for you but for me, it was like "wow, that is how they do it". I tried it out and was utterly suprised by how simple the process was. I was like. . .why didn't anyone ever tell me this is how to do it! Sheesh. . .I could have saved myself a lot of wasted scrapbook paper and boxes. So. . . .to save those of you with the same problem. . .I created a tutorial for those who are as clueless as I was.

Anyway. . .the box pictured is a medium size box. . .about 7 inch in diameter. I didn't decorate it too heavily because I thought the bead things were sufficient as decoration. I didn't decorate the top as well because I wanted to be able to stack boxes.

Check out the tutorial and discover the SECRET. Ha!
