Hatbox Makeover

You may remember that red and pink Victoria's Secret Hatbok that was peeking out of our messy closet?
 I decided to give it a little makeover to make it more fitting to the new closet look! I had this roll of green and white striped vinyl contact paper that I got on clearance at Michael's last year for 50 cents.
To wrap the lid, I covered the top first and then used little trips like this and wrapped the edges. Sorry for the lack of photos of this part. I realized halfway in that I wanted to take pictures!
This is what the wrapped lid looked like.
 Next I cut pieces and began to wrap the sides of the box itself folding some over the top and under the bottom.
 This is what the bottom looked like when I was finished with the sides. I could have left it this way but I really didn't want to worry about it peeling off.
 So I layed another piece of the contact paper over the bottom.
 And then I very carefully cut around just inside of the edge.
 It ended up a little bit wrinkly but it did the trick!
And now I have this super cute hat box that matches the made over closet perfectly!

This was such an easy project! I can't wait to share the rest of the closet makeover with you guys! It is coming along so well!
