DIY Crafts: Learn How to Line a Box with Velvet

Welcome to our latest DIY craft tutorial! This post will guide you through lining a box with luxurious velvet. Whether you want to add a touch of elegance to your jewelry box or create a stunning gift for a loved one, this tutorial is perfect. So grab your materials, and let’s get started!


Materials You’ll Need

Before we dive into the process, let’s gather all the necessary materials. Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. A box of your choice (wooden or cardboard)
  2. Velvet fabric (in a color of your preference)
  3. Scissors
  4. Ruler or measuring tape
  5. Craft glue or fabric adhesive
  6. Pencil or chalk
  7. Iron and ironing board
  8. Optional: Decorative trimmings or ribbon

Now that we have everything let’s move on to the fun part: creating a beautiful velvet lining for your box!

Step 1: Measure and Cut the Velvet Fabric

The first step is to measure the inside dimensions of your box. Measure length, width and height using a ruler or tape measure. Make sure to add an extra inch to each measurement to account for the thickness of the fabric and any seam allowances.

Once you have your measurements, transfer them onto the back of the velvet fabric using a pencil or chalk. Carefully cut along the lines to create a perfectly sized piece of fabric for your box.

Step 2: Prepare the Fabric for Lining

Before lining the box, it’s essential to give the velvet fabric a smooth and wrinkle-free appearance. Lay the fabric on an ironing board with the wrong side facing up. Set your iron to a low heat setting (check the fabric care instructions) and gently iron the fabric, moving in a circular motion. Be cautious not to press too hard, as too much heat can damage the velvet.

Step 3: Glue the Velvet Fabric into the Box

Now it’s time to glue the velvet fabric to the box’s interior. Apply craft glue or fabric adhesive evenly onto the box’s bottom surface. Take the velvet fabric and carefully press it onto the glued area, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles as you go. Repeat this process for the sides of the box, ensuring that the fabric is taut and secure.

Step 4: Create Corners and Seams

To create neat corners and seams, we’ll use mitering. Start diagonally folding the excess fabric at one corner, creating a triangular shape. Use your finger or a small tool to press the material into the corner, creating a crisp edge. Repeat this process for the remaining corners.

For the seams, fold the excess fabric towards the box’s interior and use craft glue or fabric adhesive to secure it in place. Apply the adhesive sparingly to avoid any excess glue seeping through the fabric.

Optional Step: Add Decorative Trimmings

You can embellish your velvet-lined box with decorative trimmings or a ribbon for an extra touch of sophistication. Cut the ruffles or ribbon to size by measuring the length and width of each side of the box. Apply craft glue or fabric adhesive to the back of the trimmings and carefully attach them to the corresponding edges of the box. Before handling the package, allow the adhesive to dry completely.


Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to line a box with velvet. Following these simple steps, you can transform an ordinary box into an elegant and luxurious storage solution for your jewelry, trinkets, or cherished items.

Remember to choose a high-quality velvet fabric in a color that complements your style or the recipient’s taste. Experiment with different box designs and sizes to match your needs and preferences. With creativity, you can create stunning velvet-lined boxes that make perfect gifts or decorative accents for your home.
