Wrap the Box

Wrap the box in butcher paper. There are two reasons to wrap it in butcher paper. First, it will give you a solid color palette underneath the fabric; secondly, the glue and fabric will stick better to the butcher paper than to the cardboard. Wrap the box as you would a gift package and use scotch tape to secure. Then wrap the box in the burlap or muslin fabric. Wrap it as you would a gift package and use hot glue to secure.
