Use tape for each side of the box. You can cut the top sheets or turn them inward to make them more durable. Next, measure and cut a piece of fabric for the inside of the box. For all three sides as you will see below.

Now we must do it for the outside of the box. Take your cloth and wrap as shown below in the pictures. Remember to leave a 2-3 inch allowance on the fabric for threading and finishing.

Clothespins will help you keep the fabric in place.
