If you are anything like me, you have stacks and stacks of cardboard boxes just collecting dust and taking up space in your house. Where we live, it is difficult to recycle, so if I can, I reuse and re purpose as many things I can.
I LOVE to craft. Anything crafty, I'm right there. Unfortunately, because of that love of crafting, I have TONS of crafting supplies and fabric; not to mention all of the finished projects. So, as I was looking around my house today, I got the idea for the Cardboard Craft Organizer
Cardboard Craft Organizer
You will need:
3 large boxes
3-6 small trays/boxes (number depends on what you are storing)
wrapping paper or brightly colored fabric
hot glue gun
thin wooden dowels
Gather your boxes
If your boxes have flaps, cut them off to leave four clean edges .
Take two boxes that have similar depth/width and attach them ,long sides together,with hot glue
Take the two boxes you attached together, and glue them to your base box (i suggest using a sturdier weight box for the base, like a water case) Stabilize the two sets of boxes by taping the edges with packing tape.
Cut out a notch about 6" deep out of the top of the top boxes.
About 3" inches in, notch out 4 parallel, triangle notches that are 1" deep and 1" 1/2 wide
Cover your smaller boxes with the wrapping paper/ fabric and packing tape and place your wooden dowels into the notches at the top.
Load your fabric and ribbon into the organizer and sit back and admire your green, crafty creation!
