My daughter-in-love got this idea for birthday gifts for her daughter's little friends. Her idea is to use these in the car (once the candy is gone) to store coloring books, markers, paper, etc. and then use the box/lid as a desk while riding. DIL's pawpaw made the sliding lids and I cut the vinyl letters from Storybook for her. She then distressed the tops and the vinyl letters.
I should have taken a picture of the underside of the lid but didn't so I'll try to explain. The top is a smooth piece of lightweight wood that was a few inches wider than the box. On the bottom side of the lid, her PawPaw tacked 3 ridges that when the lid was slid onto the plastic box, made it fit snuggly. That's what the ribbon is glued to.
Cute huh. And who knew you could distress vinyl.
