[Tutorial] Recycled Filebox.... and the giveaway winner

     I had some old boxes lying around and wanted to put them into good use, so I made myself some file boxes for my paper stash.

holds my 6x6 papers

Let me show you how I made it...

What I used:

     ~ old boxes cut into the following sizes:
            a. 2 pieces 6 3/4 x 6 1/2
            b. 2 pieces 6 3/4 x  3
            c. 1 piece 2 3/4 x 3
    ~ Glue Gun
    ~ Wrapping Paper
    ~ Plain colored paper
    ~ Ribbon

     Once you have all the box pieces take the smallest piece and measure the height on one side of the large piece.

     Then cut diagonally... see picture below

     Then use the glue gun to connect the boxes. It should look like this...

     Then with some wrapping paper, cover your box... 

     Cover the insides with plain , solid colored paper. I cut it just a little bit smaller the the size of my box pieces. A little secret... I did not cover the bottom part :).
     Then add a ribbon around the box and tie it in front.

     You can decorate it anyway you want...
     I made a bigger one to hold my 8.5 x 11 paper....

Onto to the Winner of the giveaway...
