This was a super easy and super fun post and I will tell you why.
So if I have more than 1 cord or more than 1 of anything, I consider it lonely and think it is best to group it with another buddy and put it in a box or bag or something. That way when you are looking for it, it is easier to find...
In come my boxes!
I started off making like 2 or three then became addicted like a crack feign and had to make like 100 of them. All I did was measure the circumference and then cut with scissors and wet it under the faucet and rubbed the material together to get it nice and sticky. I let it sit for about 5 minutes. It was rainy here and humid and I feel like it took away some of the stickiness so after a while, I let it sit for only 30 seconds or so then applied it.
I used wallpaper that I purchased really cheaply at the thrift store. It is a really heavy weight wallpaper and the fun thing is that I can paint on it. I used it for my cabinet doors in the laundry room earlier in the year. I looked the company up to buy more and I don't think they are still around. Bummer. Sometimes I think the quality of products are not as good as they used to be and wish it was easier to find a good replica at a decent price but oh well. I am glad to have the roll that I have, so moving on.
I have never wallpapered a room but saw my dad do it years ago and all I did was follow directions and added some pretty tape on the outside along with some fabric embellishments for curtains/lamps etc.
If I make more, I think I will add wallpaper to the inside to make it a little prettier but I have already put them to use in the armoire in the kitchen and it does not bother me that they are not dressed up on the inside. I can always add material later as well.
I mitered the edges and then used hot glue to add fabric on the inside to cover the rough edges. I initially folded the fabric down with out cutting it but soon decided that I would cut the material that folds over each flap on the top so I would not have bubbles appear.
I am pleased with the outcome and I like the colors too, kinda like 4th of July colors with the red, white and blue! Do you think you will recycle some boxes soon and re-use them in a pretty way?
