Cut four pieces of fabric to cover the sides of the box, adding 2 inches to the length of each side and 6 inches to the width. Lay one long panel upside down on top of the box so that three sides of the fabric overhang the box's edges by about 1 inch. Place a strip of upholstery tape about 1 inch in from the box's long edge, and staple through the tape and fabric into the wood frame every few inches. (If there's no wood frame, pin the tape and fabric in place instead.)
