Sampler Guild of the Rockies Sewing Box - update

As you may know from some previous posts I am working on a Sampler Guild of the Rockies (SGR) project called a French Sewing Box. Everyone who finishes by the September 12 meeting gets a surprise gift. And by finished they mean stitched and inserted into the box. Here is my progress so far - I have inserted the top.

The next step is to line the inside and insert the bottom. I missed the meeting that passed out the kits with the cardboard to use as the lining so I need to get something. I am thinking poster board. I used (and am using) mat board for the round inserts. The top was not problem and I created a paper template for the bottom so I think that will be ok. I just need to get the stuff for the lining. Did I tell you this is "due" in 3 days?

That is lovely.
If you mean cardboard to curve around the sides, I would suggest using cereal box card or an old greetings card
