Picture of Crafty Mii: Create a Shoebox Storage Kit for Your Wii!

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!

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Time to find your inner mii!

The required supplies are:

-shoebox that is large enough to hold an 8 X 6 X 1.5" Wii
-fabric
-fabric glue
-fabric scissors
-ruler
-paper
-spare cardboard
-tape
-stapler and staples
-pencil

Supplies that add decoration are:

-ribbon
-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.

Very detailed, well thought out instructions. It could even be adapted for a larger box so there would be space to travel with more games. Definitely a creative way to express yourself. If I did this, I would know right away that this box has my fragile wii inside and I could be extra careful with it. Anybody helping me move would be able to recognize it immediately by my telling them a simple description and they would be able to make sure they get it placed in a safe spot in the car, not buried under a bunch of stuff that could damage it.

Thanks for the easy to follow instructions and creative use of old fabric!
I like how the Wii will not be sliding around the box due to the use of the fabric. It makes a fun and creative way to take a Wii to a friends house!

The padding of the dead space is a great idea. It should help the Wii gaming console.
I like the creativity and the use of color on the box and how you represent each character.
Nice Sonic theme
