Introduction: Gum Box Hanging Storage
Do you like to chew gum? Do you have old gum boxes lying around everywhere? (I kinda hope you don't...)
Then this little 1 minute project might be good for you!
The Idea is simple: Take an old gum box, and hang it for use as storage for your tiny desk objects.
(P.S. Sorry for the lousy pictures...)
Step 1: Materials
-An old Gum Box (I'm using a Wrigley 5 Evolve Gum Box)
-A Push Pin
-Cards and/or small USB Drives
Step 2: Prep Work
While this project doesn't require much prep work to make, you may decide to Pretty Up your box before hanging. Some recommendations may include printing off a "skin" for your box, colouring on the top, or even using construction paper or paint to change it's colour. I won't be doing any of this, however; that is your choice.
Perhaps the most important thing to do is clear out any garbage from your Gum Box (as well as any remaining gum. Get Chewing! )
The only other thing I would recommend is to flatten out the flap of your gum box, so that your storage will sit flat against the wall.
Step 3: Hanging
Simply pick the spot you want to hang your holder, then pop the push pin through it. If you are using the same box as me, I recommend popping the push pin through the center of the tab (as shown) this gives a generally clean look.
And look at that, you're done!
Hopefully this will help keep your desk or work space a little cleaner.
