"This is really cute. I like how the pom poms add a little touch of color and pep to the wreath without overwhelming the natural look of the pine cones."
"Love it, will try to make"
"This idea is just too cute! I have never worked with Shrinky Dink before but after seeing this, I may just try it out. Her tutorial makes it look so easy!"

Fabric covered cardboard box cubbies are a great way to recycle cardboard boxes. Making several of one size is great to perfectly fit into a bookcase or to place on top of shelving. It is surprising how many crafting or sewing notions and fabric can be organized in this way.

Okay so this designer went all out. She actually went out cardboard and constructed her boxes. I really like the initiative. I think I would fair better using an existing box and cover it with cloth to match the decor of the room that it is intended to be used in. However, it is nice to know that if needed, I can make my own. You go gurl!

So many, many years ago when copy paper boxes were coveted, I covered two of them in Christmas theme contact paper and used them to store Christmas decorations. After many years of use, I had to part ways with them. Until now I did not think about up cycling boxes for everyday storage. Thank you for the inspiration.

Ashley has such great ideas! I painted some boxes and they turned out okay, but I like the fabric better, AND the shelving. Mine are just stacked so it can be kind of hard to get to the right one. I might just ditch the ones I made and start over.

I don't think they just pile up. I believe if you leave two of them together, they will reproduce! I can't believe how many I end up with. Maybe if I stopped shopping on line it would stop! These are just down right easy, pretty and very inexpensive . And I was thinking of coordinating what I put on the outside with what's inside. Thank ou for a great idea.

cardboard boxes seem the logical storage units - this idea turns them into attractive and organized storage that can be placed on shelves or bookcases - even on the top of cabinets. Love it and wonder why I didn't think of it
