Scrapbook Paper Shoe Boxes


I saw these lovely fabric covered cardboard boxes at sew fantastic and on pinterest. And I thought that the they would make cute storage boxes for my kids shoes. We have a shoe rack in our hallway but the kids always just throw their shoes everywhere, so I stated using boxes. But the boxes didn't look that great, I have an old takeaway box and a nappie box


But the thing was i didn't have no fabric!! so I'd thought I'd try and improvise by using scrapbook paper instead! Each box used 3 sheets of 12 x 12 paper. I simply cut to size and glued on!
 here's my green one


And here's my brown one. I love the paper I used on this as the front looks like wood




And here they are on my messy shoe rack

  9. Once you select to keep your scraps you need to identify how and where to keep them. The best way I have found to keep my papers scraps is in shoes bins.
