Inside: how to make a glamorous recycled paper chest of drawers
Everyone has a collection. Some like to collect stamps, others have stamps collection or even movie memorabilia. I love boxes. I have many of them, even though I don't have many things to put in them. During the years I bought a few, but I also really love making them. It always amazes me how little you need to build a box and how easy it is.
BUILDING A PAPER BOX
Building a paper box is a simple process that usually requires folding and gluing You can make a box in any shape and although it will not hold very heavy items it can be useful and not just decorative.
WHAT TO PUT INSIDE A PAPER BOX
As long as the items are dry and relatively small you can put almost anything inside a paper box.
Here are some ideas:
- Small toys
- Hair items
- Office supplies
- A gift
- Make-up items
- Craft supplies
- Tickets and small items you want to keep
ALTERING USED BOXES
Making boxes from scratch is fun but you can also alter boxes you don't use anymore.
- Paint the box or cover it with paper to give ot a new color or style.
- Change the structure of the box by removing parts like the lid or one of the walls. For example: use the box as a cover for a mini album, like I did on this video.
- Use a few boxes to create a wall hanging or a dresser made from boxes.
BUILDING A RECYCLED PAPER CHEST OF DRAWERS
Another way to build a DIY box is to use paper with recycled objects or materilas. You can use objects like empty serial boxes, old jewelry boxes, coasters and even cd's.
