Storage is my best friend. Really. It seems we've always found ourselves in tight quarters with little or no closet space, and storage solutions are an absolute necessity. One thing I never throw away is a shoe box. There are so many ways to dress them up; why not take advantage of that instead of spending more money on plastic bins? And with three wee ones running around I find myself with new shoe boxes often, as their feet are always growing.
For my project I gathered a few shoe boxes, a roll of Kraft paper, some washi tape, scissors and scotch tape. You can also add ribbon, lace and fabric to your supplies if you want to get extra fancy!
Wrap both the lid and the main part of the shoe box like you were wrapping a present. If you want it to look extra-special nice go ahead and cover the inside of the box before you wrap the outside.
This time around I accented most of my boxes with washi tape, and I also had the kiddos draw pictures on some of the Kraft paper for me to wrap one of the boxes in.
