I like almost free.
So I'm working on my craft wall and I need some cute storage, but it can't all be Dollar Tree bins.
I need some variety.
Take a box.
Cut off the flaps.
I used this super handy blade from Martha Stewart.
Cut a piece of fabric like you're going to wrap a present, my box was 13x7x8 so my material was 42x16.
Glue the fabric together at the back of the box
more gluing, keep the material tight.
Even though no one will see the bottom I wanted it to look clean so I folded down the raw edge before I glued it down.
Now hot glue the crap out of it so everything stays tight.
The top is just folded into the box and secured with more hot glue.
I really wanted to label my boxes by stamping the fabric but I didn't want to commit to storing just one thing in it.... maybe I won't always keep spraypaint in this box.
I originally planned to cover the boxes in cool paper, but I prefer the natural look of the fabric.
So cost breakdown.
Boxes - free
Fabric - drop cloth 9.99 from walmart (this is the 3rd project I've done with it!!!)
Accent twine - 1.99 for a roll, and I have a bunch left over!
I'm doing six boxes so we're talking less than $2.00 per box.
I love it!
