Recycled Cardboard Box Paper storage or Craft and Sewing Storage or Scrapbook Storage
Saturday, January 16, 2010
I have had trouble figuring out how to store my paper. A friend cut out a storage container for her paper using shipping boxes and boxes from kitty litter etc... While searching the internet, I came across a blog where someone had step-by-step instructions for making a fabric covered box. Instead of hot glue, I mixed some Elmer's glue with a little water and painted the box with it and attached the fabric. After drying, it was ready to use. I changed the covering on the last ones I made; I covered them with used calendars from the previous year. Great way to recylce and saves my fabric for other projects. I used ModPodge to attach the calendar paper, but I assume glue would work also. One word of caution; thin calendar pages do not work well; needs to be a little thicker, or it will wrinkle and pooch out in spots. Here is a link to the blog this kind person posted on the web. I am so appreciative to her for posting this.
