dependng on ur placement of the box and design, start where ur gonna see the actual carpet, i find this makes it come out the best, then the scrap work can be done in a place that you cant see.

Yup...thats ideally what you should do. Seams should be on the bottom or back, but depending on the application, the top may also work.

I tug till no end, once the carpet is securely fastened on one side with tackers. You might get a bit of creases or stretchmarks. Easily cured with a warm iron. If it's vinyl/leather, use a few pieces of paper between the iron and vinyl.

Never ever start or have a the end the carpet end on the edge of the box, make sure every single edge is covered, or else it will look like shit. Do it like you would rap a present and it will come on perfect.

I would like to add when you do get to a seam. Overlap the carpet before you cut. And use a very sharp knife to cut both pieces of carpet at the same time. makes for almost invisible seams :)

Go to the local upholstery shop and get some glue. You have to have a gun but it really works good.
