makes a great accent piece

The one caveat I have about this project is how to deal with the presence of the label holder like I have on my boxes. They are photo/video catalog boxes, and so I had to cut a hole in the paper on one end of the box. I did thisbefore I glued it down, and it seemed to work well enough (not perfect, but okay for my purposes).

I’m sure you could cut it after gluing, but it might pose a problem of anchoring that part of the paper to the box. If you don’t need the label holder, you can also just cover it and forget about it. I thought about doing this, but I chose to keep the holder because I liked how it looked. You can use scraps that you’ve cut off to cut a piece of paper to slip inside, so its the same color as the rest of the box.

Ta-da! My newly redecorated, revamped storage box (these are the other colors). You can see that its not perfect, but I was also winging it. It goes great with my bedroom and makes a great accent piece.

Sorry for not doing a better tutorial – check out my sewing blogs for a better read; this was an afterthought of the project or I could’ve given step-by-step pictures along with my instructions. Know that you can always change things for what you need, and don’t be afraid to experiment!
