Recycled Craft storage Bins


Hello friends

This is a craft storage solution I came up with using some empty cereal packs and other packages.

well started with this.................................


Three big empty packs of cereal  boxes taped together after cutting one side

one big pack of  cereal cut in a slanting way and taped together

tall empty bottle packs

The bottle packs fit in so this may work like a caddy

so after a little upcycling using some pretty gift wrapping paper and you have this...............









Don't you think that there is nothing like a bit of PP, glue and some embellishments to pretty up just about anything!!


I have used white and gold gift wrapping paper  ( at about Rs 4 for a big sheet, have used three) and another leaf design paper for covering( at Rs 5/- for an A4 sheet, used five sheets here for four bins) , some thick metallic gold paper (which  I got free from a wedding card shop!! ) /handmade gold and brown paper, flowers punched out of the golden paper. The leaves are fussy cut from the leaf design paper and decoupaged on the boxes and finally added some pearls. I am using the tall bottle packs for storing my wooden blocks and other stuff.  And now my crafting stuff  his fits snugly in one space.........and am happy for the recycling bit too.

The total cost of the project is less than Rs 15 for each bin!!

hope you all like it ..............
