Burlap Covered Storage Boxes



I see cute little storage boxes in the store all the time, but I think of all the hot glue I could buy with the money I would spend on those and I turn the other way. It's a good thing, too, because I used a lot of hot glue to make these. :)

Materials needed:
Cardboard boxes (I used 12" x 12" x 10.5")
Burlap--If you are using the same size box as I am you will need a 50 inch cut of fabric. This will make 2 boxes.
Ribbon
Plenty of hot glue sticks for your trusty hot glue gun
Have a vacuum handy because there will be little burlap stringies EVERYWHERE!

If your box has flaps, cut them off.














Wrap the burlap around your box, hot gluing one panel at a time. Leave around 2 inches at the top and 2 inches at the bottom.
Glue the burlap to the bottom of box. I did this the way I would wrap a present.














Fold the burlap over the top edge of the box and glue it to the inside.
Oops!
Thank goodness for ribbon!

Hot glue ribbon to the inside of the box to cover the burlap edges.














Add ribbon and/or desired embellishments to the outside of your box.

To make this embellishment just wrap jute around a
cardboard circle and hot glue your paper to the back.















I'm using mine to store my never ending supply of crafting goodies, but I'm planning on making more to store diapers and wipes.





































I just finished these to replace the broken
drawers in my entertainment center.























Happy crafting!
