DIY Storage Boxes From Up-cycled Cardboard Boxes

678,654 Views
Hello fabulous Hometalkers! Today we are making beautiful instant storage boxes for almost... FREE!
These boxes are perfect for organizing a pantry, cleaning supplies or craft materials. And they are super easy to make!
Got cardboard boxes?? And burlap coffee bean bags?
First cut the lids off a cardboard box or push them inside against the 4 sides.
There are different ways to attach the fabric to the storage box which will decide how wide to cut the burlap.
First way to do this is to use a finished edge of the burlap as the top edge. Rotate the box as you apply glue to each side and press the burlap stripe onto each side.
Finish by snipping the burlap where the corner turns, fold and glue the edges to the bottom. This step is easier with hot glue.
For the stencils, all you need is some craft paint, and Scotch tape!
I made one with the tape running horizontally, and another one vertically. So many way to create simple yet beautiful designs!
Check out the link below to see more detailed tips plus how to make triangle stencils - super easy too!
