Friendly Plastic Peel Off Box


I've always wondered how this was done.  A box made with friendly plastic and my pet hate of the craft world 'peel offs'.

Well last weekend when I took Liz's class, she shared the technique with me.  It's so simple when you know how!!!


I was quite impressed how it all came together, no glue, just constructed by heating the plastic.


This is the lid.  I ran out of black FP so used silver around the edges and black peel off dots.  The handle is made using the smaller piece of tubing from the tubead kit on the previous post.


I have to say, I was totally amazed when the lid actually fitted snuggly onto the box.   This is the other side of the box.


This is the inside of the lid.  I lined the top with green organza/chiffon type fabric.  I didn't do all the sides though.


I did the same inside the box and lined all the sides and bottom with the same green fabric.
