How to Make an Easy Needlepoint Gift Boxcomments (5) October 31st, 2008
It's true, sometimes plastic canvas gets no respect in the craft world, but it deserves some! It's a fantastic material for all kinds of structural crafts, such as this beautiful needlepoint gift box.
What you'll need:
- 14-count plastic canvas
- Pearl cotton embroidery floss
- Small, blunt, large-eyed needle
- White craft glue
- Large paper clips
Plastic canvas comes in several grades: 7 count, 10 count, and 14 count. The count refers to the number of squares in an inch. You've probably seen the 7-count stuff at your craft store, but I'm a big fan of 14 count. Its holes are much smaller, so your stitchery looks much finer.
