The scrap bin created by Chris of Weekend Wisdom is brilliant imho... and knew I could use something like that when I’m sitting on the living room sofa, watching a movie, and hand-sewing quilt binding. I typically just put the bits of thread on the arm of the sofa and, when done, gather them all up to dispose of. But having a bin would be so convenient… not only handy but MUCH more attractive than having a nest of threads on the sofa arm.
So, yesterday afternoon was craft time!
I pulled out my can of spray glue, which can be used on “paper, cardboard, plastic, fabric, wood, photos, metal, wrapping paper, and tissue paper.” I particularly like the “30-minute” drying time.
(I am in no way, shape, form, or manner affiliated with Aleene’s products or any craft store.)
Chris’ directions are clear and the photos helpful. I tweaked them a bit since I was using spray glue.
See the wrinkles on the right side of the tissue box? Because the glue is tacky at first, I was able to lift the fabric off the box and reposition it easily.
Yes, I got some glue on my fingers but I didn't have to wash my hands until I was finished gluing the fabric to the box.
I stood the tissue box on its end and let it dry under the ceiling fan while I returned my attention to the laundry.
The only thing "challenging" about the Velcro was fitting the box under the arm of my sewing machine on one side.
I like that the bin folds up and may be taken to classes and retreats. It’s pretty, too!
