As soon as everything is dry, take the lid and photocopy the image. Put the glue on the lid and on the back of the photocopy and attach it, taking care not to create any bends in the image. Now the storage box is ready to store everything you want. You can also create boxes with colored adhesive tapes creating alternating strips, or you can attach some fake flowers, in short you can have fun giving free rein to your imagination. They can also be made as a gift for a special occasion.
It has certainly happened to each of us to find some empty and unused shoe boxes at home .
If you have a large enough number of boxes, you can create a practical and comfortable shoe rack with them. Fold one of the two short sides inwards to form an opening. Fix the fold just made using adhesive tape or vinyl glue. Do this on all the boxes and then glue them together with some liquid glue. Let it dry for a few hours and your original shoe rack will be finished. It is one of the most classic methods for recycling a shoe box. In fact, it is sufficient to remove the cardboard lid and fill it with pens, pencils, felt-tip pens or other stationery objects. You can also possibly decorate it externally to give it a more pleasant appearance. You will be able to use your empty shoe boxes as practical containers for tidying up your home. Store inside them medicines, detergents, bottles, clothes or anything else you want. It is also possible to apply on one side a label that shows the type of object contained in them. This will allow you to better organize what you have at home. This is an excellent idea to put your jewelry in order. Take the lid of the box and, using a pair of scissors, make rectangular pieces of cardboard. Arrange them inside the box to create practical compartments in which to place rings, necklaces, bracelets and much more. Remember to fix them to the inner walls of the box using simple vinyl glue. In this way you will avoid moving during the use of your DIY jewelry box.
They are also suitable for storing ribbons: roll up the ribbons and then pull out one end; in this way the tape does not get tangled and you can take it when you need it; in the same way it is good for the elastic or other yarns or cords that are used in tailoring. Place the boxes next to each other in a larger box or drawer to keep them tidy and handy. You can also keep mine for micromine pencils or even re-use the container to put the cewingums inside.
