Make Something Monday: DIY storage boxes

Get ready to see the easiest DIY ever.

We have a lot of need for small storage at our home but small storage can be costly. We DIY whatever we can from shoe boxes and diaper boxes.

These boxes were created from old shoeboxes for my daughter’s new desk.

It’s so easy: first, get a few old shoeboxes, some bookplates and some modge podge. You can use cloth instead of paper if you’d like.

Then, wrap your box with the cloth or paper, as though you are wrapping a present. Remember to glue as you go.

Then, after you’ve got all of your boxes and lids covered, add your bookplates. I Like to put the lids on and sit the bookplate on it without actually attaching it. I do this so I can make sure I like the placement before I make it permanent 🙂 

If you like the bookplate placement, punch holes, push the fasteners through and fold them back.

And then you’ll have some brand new desk boxes.
