DIY Boxes

Any obsessed good crafter will tell you that you can never ever ever have enough storage for all of your ribbons, pens, stamps, brushes, embellishments, etc, etc, etc.  What works really well for me is shelving and boxes - especially because I LOVE  boxes.  I am fortunate that where I work, we get two Cheesecake Shop cakes each month and it finally dawned on me that I could upcycle the boxes.  Here is how I did it.

Box    Scissors    Double Sided Tape    Scrapbooking Paper
Stanley Knife    Ruler

Eat the cheesecakes :)

Outline the edges of the inside of the box with double sided tape

 Cut wrapping paper slightly larger than the inside of the box.  Lay paper over double sided tape and press into place.  Trim excess paper edges with stanley knife.

Measure and cut scrapbooking paper slightly larger than the side panels of the sides of the box.  Coat one side of the box with Mod Podge and place the scrapbooking paper in position.  Repeat for the other sides and set aside to dry.  Once dry trim edges of paper with stanley knife. 

Repeat the above step for the top of the box, but instead of trimming the edges, fold them over and and glue to the sides of the box.

Then embellish you box to your hearts content.  I used washi tape and the labels are stuck on with blue tac, in case I change what is in them later.

 I also used the left over pieces of paper and washi tape to decorate a Pringles can.
