I keep EVERY box from things that I buy. It's kind of a habit.
I spent most of the day cleaning my workshop (wich is actually the basement, but workshop sounds a bit better...) and I came across a couple of boxes that I didn't need anymore and I was in the mood for some DIY stuff so was the result. And it literaly takes 5 minutes to make one box.
You will need:
- Some cartboard boxes
- Cutter or scissors
- A ruler and a pen or a marker
- Glue gun (you can use duct tape too)
Step 1: Start the Clock!
First mark on the box where you want to make the cuts. Looks good? Ok, cut it down!
Now, istead of throwing away the parts use them to reinforce the box: push the top part (if there is one) all the way to the bottom and glue or tape the side you cut inside the box.
