Anyway, I bought the foam. Then, I had to figure out what to do with it. There were so many possibilities! After mulling over what should be my first craft foam sheet project, I decided to make myself a heart shaped box, in honor of valentine's day.
I cut a heart for the top, and a heart 1/8 of an inch smaller on every side for the bottom (the foam was 1/8 inch thick, and I wanted my top and bottom to fit snugly.) Then I cut the sides-- all the same height. I cut 4 pieces, each the length of 1/2 of the distance around the heart.
Then, I cut a thin strip of pretty fabric for the top, and a length of matching ribbon for the bottom. I put my box together by sewing the side pieces to the fabric/ribbon, and then sewing the top/bottom to the fabric/ribbon.
