Materials Needed

  • cloth napkins
  • photo storage boxes
  • repositionable adhesive spray
  • crafts glue
  • scissors

Step 1

Remove the lid and set it aside, then remove the metal label holder and discard it.

Step 2

Place a napkin facedown. Spray the outside of the box, including its bottom, with repositionable adhesive, then center the bottom on the napkin.

Step 3

Fold the napkin up over the box’s sides. At the corners, tuck the fabric under itself to create crisp seams. Tack down the seams with crafts glue.

Step 4

Trim excess fabric, leaving about an inch to fold over the box’s top. Glue the fabric inside the box.

Step 5

Repeat for the lid.
