Canvas Storage Box From A Shoe Box

I made this:

From this:

I used this extra large shoebox, left over from buying my husbands shoes. It has an attached lid and a metal grommet embellishment. I decided to put it to good use.


Sorry about the blurry photo, this is just a picture of the shelf paper I found at the 99 Cent Store, I love that place!

Sorry, I didn't take a lot of pictures of this process, but after completely lining the inside of the box with shelf paper, I measured and cut strips of Home Depot Drop Cloth material to fit the box. I left some of the hem on to give it a finished look. I Modpodged The fabric to the box and let it completely dry. Then I tacked down the edges with hot glue and clothes pinned them.

I had some wooden letter tags and twine and decorated the grommet, using hot glue.

Then I hot glued on some ribbon.

This is very cute! I am always saving nice boxes with thoughts of covering/decorating them (although I don't usually do too well on the follow thru).
