Cuties Box Baby Bed

Every night Scarlett goes to bed with her best bud toys, Sophie, Little Giraffe and Lambie. She tucks them in bed with her and puts their little heads on one of her pillows so they are comfy too. I came across the idea to turn a Cuties box into a baby bed in Family Fun magazine and pulled the page out to make later for her little guys. I was super excited the next night while I was having dinner at a friends house and saw a Cuties box in her trash. I asked her if I could have it, told her what I was going to do with it so she didn't think I was just a nasty trash digger, and got to work on it the next night at home.
 I just made up what I was doing as I went along, tucking and gluing like wrapping a present. I used hot glue and fleece I had in my stash to cover the cardboard which worked great because you don't end up with any frayed ends. Scarlett assisted me and was so excited watching it come together. I also made two little pillows by cutting a long rectangle of fleece, folding it in half, stuffing it with batting and sealing it shut with hot glue and two little blankets by cutting rectangles of fleece the size of the box (easiest blanket ever!).
 Once we finished the bed up we took it in her room and put her guys to bed.
 I made this for her about a month ago and she still sleeps with it every night, tucking her buddies in when she goes to sleep, she loves it.
And the little bed is great for when we travel. Sophie, Little Giraffe and Lambie ride in their bed on Scarlett's lap in the car on the way to our destination and then they have there own bed for sleepovers right next to a sleeping Scarlett of course.
