"Quilted" Styrofoam Box- Fall Centerpiece or a Storage Box ( Tutorial)

3 Hours
Easy
If you guys are familiar with my previous posts you would know that I am crazy about fabric:) I also like to do crazy crafts that involve using not very typical objects. In this case I used a Styrofoam box my husband brought from work saying " look, you can do something cool with it!". So I had it for a few months and I finally decided to do something "cool" with it :) You can basically use any Styrofoam like shape to create this "no- sew quilt" looking decorations. In the past, I just worked with a rectangular or square pieces. I also would like to do it to the Styrofoam balls or rings. So here is how I made my little box.... I am still looking for a perfect use for it and a good spot in a house:)
