DIY home decor Project Up cycle

Organizers – Recycle empty boxes

There are ways to up cycle things around us. I keep working out the ways, things could be used instead of throwing them in trash. This project was pretty simple in comparison with the kind of detailed projects i usually take up. It all started with one thought that i wanted to organize one section of my kitchen, where all the packaged stuff was kept. The empty boxes, which have been used in making these organizers also came from kitchen .

Materials –

  1. Printed paper rolls
  2. Paper cutter
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors
  5. Boxes 


There are 2 different size of the organizers. Boxes used in making these, were of 2 different sizes. Make sure the paper from the roll is cut as per the size of the boxes you select. Cut the flap of the box on the dotted line. 

When you start covering the boxes with the printed paper, spread the glue evenly all over the surface.  It will give the clean finish to the glued paper once the glue dries up.

The paper should cover at least 2-3 inches inside the boxes. I made 2 boxes in each size.

The second box didn’t require any cutting. Paper was cut as per the size of the box and glued. paper was cut to show up the holders on both the sides of the box.

I was left with long side strips of the paper, which i used as contrast on the surface of the boxes.

Other small sized left over cuttings i used in bunting, which enhances the interior of my shelves now .:)

This has been all win win project. I recycled, got my shelf better organized and was able to use every bit of the materials used and my shelves look prettier 🙂

At the end of the project when i saw all the leftover paper pieces, I didn’t want to throw them away. Bunting was an impromptu thing, which made the interiors of my storage even better.
