The Finished Project
On a past post http://asweetsavor.blogspot.com/2013/02/tzedakah.html I described decorating a new Tzedekah box by using a cocoa box to replace a dollar store gift box that I was using for that purpose. If you look close you'll see that the paper on the box has little dots of glitter glue to emphasize the design . I didn't care for the fact that the top to the box was molded with the brand name of the cocoa and pondered how to decorate the top for a while. I came up with a simple solution. The top was traced onto a piece of card stock (any cardboard will do) and cut out to fit into the recess on the top. I glued a piece of fabric to the card stock and then glued the assembly to the top. I then proceeded to glue ribbon matching the color of the paper that decorated the outside of the box. If you desire you could add a slot to the top so you don't have to take off the lid every time you added to your offering.
