With just a few cuts and some simple folds, the rectangular box takes on a whole new form that is very sturdy and makes for a handy storage space. Continue reading to discover how you too can take control of clutter in your own home using only cardboard boxes and Makedo parts from mymakedo.com.
Step 1: Create new folds
Next we want to turn the rectangular box into a hexagon shape. We’ve done this by making a new fold in the box on each of the two larger faces. Use the point-end of the Makedo Safe-saw to score a new fold line half way through the wider faces of the flattened box.
You can now stand the box up and bend it into a hexagonal shape.
Step 2: Cut new flaps
Now you should have a six-sided box with flaps top and bottom.
Step 3: Fold and connect flaps
At one end, connect the overlapping flaps using Makedo Re-clips.
Join multiple units together.
Step 4: Join together to complete
Connect using Makedo Re-clips.
Your Modular Cardboard Storage Unit is complete. Repeat the process to add more compartments to suit your space and storage requirements.
Remember to share what you’ve made with us at mymakedo.com, we’d love to see it!
