Introduction: Shoebox Makeover

Before & After - Shoebox Makeover.

This DIY brings you the steps to change a shoebox to a storage box to store your craft items.

Step 1: Materials Required

Materials required:-
Shoe box (clean it using tissue and cloth)

Eyelets, puncher and setter

Craft paper (I chose handmade paper)

Modpodge (or any paper glue and sealant)

brush, washi tapes

Your craft supplies to be stored.

Step 2:

Place your supplies and mark the spots

Step 3:

Clean the outside of shoe box and apply modpodge.

Step 4:

Start pasting colorful papers on to the box. You can measure and cut and
paste or paste then trim. The first way is much clean though!! I was so enthusiastic that i pasted and then trimmed the paper. But hey. it wasn’t too bad. :)

Step 5:

I applied modpodge over the paper as well, after it dried to make sure the paper does not get tampered or torn.
Now punch hole (on the marked spot) and position your eyelet. Finally, close the other side using setter. I punched holes on both the sides so that I could store more!! :)

Step 6:

Now place your thread spool or ribbon and check if it goes through freely.

Step 7:

Since i had uneven edges, I covered them using purple washi tape and it
just changed the way of the box how it looked. I fell in love with the colors!!

Step 8:

This is your final storage box made out of shoe box!! I am in love with
the box! my craft supplies deserve such a makeover storage box

What a great idea to pull the yarn/string out and recycle the box. Nice work. =)
