Today, I made use of post office cardboard boxes and patterned duct tape

Step 1: Measure

Let’s get started!

You know these boxes are free, right?

I want to fit my 12x12 patterned papers so I’m gonna use the longer side of the box. It measures 14in.

Step 2: Mark

Using a pen and ruler, I drew a line on both side of the box like this. If you make more than one box and plan on having them right next to each other then make sure the slopes of these lines are the same on all boxes.

Step 3: Cut

Cut along your drawn lines using a craft knife and be very careful while cutting. Cut the top part off too…

Step 4: Cover

Now the fun part starts…

cover your box with duct tape

Step 5: Finish

You're done when your box is completely covered. 
Enjoy!
