DIY art supply storage + milk carton boxes.



I came up with this new project that I would love to share. An art supply storage, for my little one, made out of milk carton boxes. Say no more to crayons laying around the house!

You will need:

- 4 milk (or juice, etc) carton boxes;
- Scotch Tape;
- small piece of sand paper;
- scissors;
- ruler;
- glue gun;
- fabric (or felt, paper, photos, etc) and..
- big smile :)



Step by step:

1- Get the 4 boxes, clean and cut it 4 inch high;

2 - Stick it together with Scotch Tape, I found it easier doing 2 by 2 first, and remember to seal the bottom too;

3 - You will rub the sand paper  outside so you can use the glue gun afterwards;

4- Pick the material you would like to use, for this project I used fabric;

5 - Get the glue gun and cover all the sides with the chosen material;

6 - Cut 4 extra pieces to cover the inner division, as seen on picture #4;

7 - I finished the bottom with a big square piece of felt;

8 -  Done! Enjoy your new recycled art material storage. :)
