Create Valance Box
Referring to measurements taken with pencil and notepad, have 1-by-10-inch pine plank cut to size at local home improvement store. Using drill and 2-inch wood screws, assemble precut planks of pine into a three-sided box.
Unfurl batting out along flat, level surface. Next, place valance box along the top, then cut to size using scissors.
