Pink cardboard Storage boxes
It's a SUPER-cheap way to create storage. And they look pretty cute, too.
You'll need a cardboard box, burlap, and a hot glue gun. Then any embellishments you want to use.
So, here's how you can make your own...
I started with two sturdy cardboard boxes. Since I'm drowning in babies right now, I have lots of diaper boxes and a baby wipes boxes, so that's what I used. They were a little too tall, so I cut off the tops with a box cutter and made them the same height.
They were too bright and I could see the graphics through the burlap, so I covered the outside of the boxes with white paper and white masking tape, but you could use just about anything.
Then I sewed a ruffle using a scrap of dropcloth that I had. I cut the dropcloth doubling the length I needed and sewed a straight stitch through the middle, then ruffled it by pulling one of the threads tight. I then hot-glued the ruffle onto the box.
The labels came from my scrapbooking stash that I haven't used in years! But you could make your own labels or buy some. There are so many creative ways to make labels.
I use the boxes to hold the cloth diapers that I use for Jack and Violet. In case you are wondering, the diapers are called BumGenius and you can buy them from my friend Jen's website here. I highly recommend them!
Overall, it's a pretty easy project but takes some patience when wrapping and gluing the burlap. And there are a million different ways you could embellish them.
Let me know if you have any questions. Have fun making your own! And be sure to share your pictures with me!See also:

Why are Kelloggs Corn Pops the only cereal with a paper package inside the box instead of a plastic package
It's a tradition they don't want to break, and if you pay close attention the small boxes use plastic,
is collecting mailing envelopes from their packaged boxes wasting paper or really not? | Yahoo Answers
I dont think so, but thanks for being concerned!!
