I loved my Wii, but I could not transport the large box the Wii came in all across the country when I went to college. I can't sew, so I could not put together a carrying bag. So, I have made a simple shoebox kit that stores the Wii console. You can make as many as you like to also store accessories.
A Wii needs protection from dust and accidental damage while it is not in use. These steps require no special ability or level of skill. The average completion time is 1 hour and 10 minutes, which includes the 45 minutes it took for the fabric glue to dry (it takes a whole day to become permanently stuck). Make a Wii Shoebox Storage Kit that reflects your video game personality!
(Being a Sonic the Hedgehog fan not required)
Step 1: Gather Supplies
The required supplies are:
-shoebox that is large enough to hold an 8 X 6 X 1.5" Wii
-stapler and staples
Supplies that add decoration are:
-colored or patterned paper
-T-shirt with a picture of your favorite video game character
Note: The fabric scissors are rather sharp, so young children should not handle them.
Step 2: Measure Cardboard and Cut
2A. Measure the dimensions of your shoebox with a ruler.
2B. Measure how much space a Wii that is approximately 8 X 6X 1.5" will take up in your shoebox.
2C.Take the cardboard scraps and measure the length of the rectangular scraps so that they can partition the box into a section that will hold the Wii.
Note: Cardboard that can stand up 1.5" or slightly taller is ideal because that is how high the side of the Wii will be when laying down horizontally.
