    Default Mother's Day Felted Recipe Box

    What you'll need:
    2 sheets purple felt
    1 sheet dark purple felt
    White craft glue
    Glue stick
    Empty envelope box or other cardboard box
    Greeting card or clip art printed on card stock

    How to make it:
    Trim top flaps off of cardboard box.
    Cover box, inside and out, with purple felt. Use the glue stick for most of the application, secure seams and ends with white craft glue.
    From the dark purple felt, cut 4 long strips about 1 wide.
    Trim sides of each dark purple strip to add curves, or you can cut with decorative scissors to give them a scalloped look.

    Glue strips onto each corner to cover any seams.
    Cut out a pretty picture from an old greeting card or choose a piece of clip art and print it on card stock. Glue the picture to the front of the box.
    Cut out small hearts from the greeting card and glue them onto the front of the box for further decoration.

    To minimize visible seems, start gluing your felt from the inside bottom of the box and work your way out toward the back of the box. Repeat this process for the front as well.
