Thinking outside the box

and in this case, the hat box...

A lot of times when making a gift for someone you try and theme it around things that they like. In this case Chelsea and I decided to make something for a friend of her's in band, choosing the drum as our theme.

After having no luck to try and find a drum, we decided to make one. This drum was made with a hat box, foamies, star brads and gold ribbon. Using glue, cropadile and staples we adhered the top first with staples, knowing the 2nd strip would cover our work. Trim foamies sheet to size then wrap around and glue with mod podge.

To decorate and help hold on foamies we added the brads and ribbon around the sides with the cropadile and a paper piercer. Then filled with candy.
