First I ordered square hatboxes on ebay. These were impossible to find in the store! Then I cut out a card slot on the side of the top box and square in the middle of the bottom box with a razor blade.
I marked the fabric with a marker then cut along the "X"
I wrapped the boxes with fabric pretty similar to how you wrap a present with a few modifications. I just wanted a really smooth and elegant look. I used clips to hold the ends while the glue dried.
I wrapped the top piece and then added flowers. It doesn't look exactly like her cake, but I think it's pretty cool. Functional and fancy.
Tell me what you think!
