But they did come with these fabulous cardboard dividers, which are so great for organizing and storing all kinds of things.
And the nice thing about them is that because they’re made to carry bottles they’re very strong.
Isn’t he cute?
Well he may be cute, but I didn’t want to be looking at him all the time… and I was afraid he might scare my cats when they come visit me in my craft room.
So he had to go.
I cut off the top flaps to give me easy access to the items I’ll be storing. They can certainly be kept if you like.
I rolled the box across the contact paper, smoothing each side before moving to the next… until I had all 4 sides covered.
I removed the cardboard dividers from inside the box, cut the corners of the contact paper, and folded them inside.
I did the same thing to the bottom.
And here’s my finished box.
Here’s a box that I covered with some dollar store pink polka dot wrapping paper. I secured the paper with regular clear packing tape, and trimmed the top with pink duct tape to protect the edges.
It’s filled with some wooden craft items that I thrifted a while back. I can totally see storing rolled up fabrics in these as well.
And here’s one that I use to store some Christmas decorations. I haven’t covered this one with anything yet, but I just wanted to show you the great storage options of these boxes.
They’re also great to use when moving (which we did quite a few times before this house) for packing glassware, knick knacks etc. I’ve always loved using them because there’s no need to wrap things, saving a ton of time and hassle.
I definitely wouldn’t recommend letting movers handle these boxes though, but we always moved ourselves so it’s never been an issue.
Have a fabulous day, and thanks so much for reading.
