Oh yeah, theres a little fabric in there too. All went well, except I got a case of the paper+glue warbles. See:



If anyone has a cure all trick to get rid of that, let me know. It is honestly the bain of my existence.

I used mostly mod podge...mod podge is my friend...but on the fabric I used fast try tacky glue. I also used the tacky gule to glue the pink top (The underside, the warbly part) to the top top. I Held it down for a while, but I was more worried about the corners and edges. I still maintain it did it when I wasn't looking. I am so OCD about paper ripples, I swear.

what a cute little case/box!  Unfortunately I don't really have any great tricks to avoid the warbly thing....all I can say is that I've found glue sticks work quite well for me.  Or if using a liquid glue like tacky glue or another craft glue like that, I usually try to smooth it out across the paper with a popsicle stick or like object so there is just a thin coating and then when adhering it to the other surface I start at one end and kind of smoothen out any air bubbles as i'm going along.  I sometimes will also cover it with a heavy object such as a biology textbook until it is set and almost dry.  I don't know if any of these methods make sense or are "correct" but they seem to work for me!  Hope this helps:)  peace...

Warbly or not, it looks great and was a fantastic idea.

cute box! to fix the warbly parts, put something heavy on top, like a dictionary, while the glue dries, that's always worked for me.
