Introduction: How to Hingify Wine Boxes
Have you ever found yourself with lots of wine boxes and time like wise? If so you could turn them into useful rustic looking storage containers for your work area or just around the house.
Step 1: Materials
1] Wine boxes
2] Small hinges
3] Appropriate nails for such hinges
4] A hammer
5] Some tweezers might help [to steady the nail]
Step 2: Marking Out Where to Place Your Hinges
First you'll need to decide where you are going to position your hinges and how many your gonna use, for mine I decided to use two hinges both of which are 1.5" from the end of the box.
Step 3: Nailing in the Hinges to the Big Part of the Box
I found that it was easier to nail the hinges to the big part of the box first.
Step 4: Nailing the Hinges to the Second Part
I found when nailing the hinges into the small part of the box it was easier to temporarily hold the box together with elastic bands.
Step 5: Tah Dah
hope you enjoyed my first making things instructable!

This is something new to me. I have never thought to add hinges to a wine box. So far, I have only hingified a few similar boxes for jewellery and a sewing kit but never for wines. Well, I guess if you were to think far and be creative, you are able to create anything that you desire. And sometimes, they do not even cost that much at all and need so little effort too.
