Making Two Boxes out of One

I needed somewhere to hide all the junk that has been cluttering my desk. I decided to put this old paper box to use.

I cut both the box and the lid in two.

The lid will become the front pieces for these boxes.

I removed the paper that was on the box (I added that some years ago, so this is the second time I am re-inventing this box…lol) to make it easier to work with.

Some cute fabric and glue was used to hide the ugly surface.

The lid was attached to the front with a glue gun.

All the crap that was spread out around my working space was hidden away in the boxes.

The boxes where put up on a shelf.

I also added a handle to them using a white suede leather cord. Very easy to do. Punch some holes in the front, use three starnds of cord, braid, and tie a knot at each end of the handles.
