craft recipe: spaghetti box , glue & paper

I love paper. I especially love paper craft. Paper + making something. Even better. Throw in recycle/re-purpose to the mix and now we're talking.

I'm always saving good packaging knowing I can use it for some sort of craft or another. After seeing this paper project at A Little Hut I decided I'd give this little box a new life. I kept it really simple but I think the possibilities are endless. You can make it as simple or detailed as you wish.

I simply cut off the top of the box. This one is a little flimsy so I reinforced the ends, where the box was originally opened, with tape first. Then I cut my paper with a paper cutter and covered the long sides. I covered the ends last, squeezed a little glue just under the edges and held them in place with a clothespin. I thought it would be nice to have a design on the inside so I printed an image from my digital stash and used it for the inside. This would be great for the inside of a drawer or simply on top of your work area as a little catch-all for miscellaneous bits & pieces.

*It's my second post with pink. I didn't plan it that way, promise. I do have another "pink" project to share soon. It is Breast Cancer Awareness month though.

Too Cute! My 7-year-old always needs art supply storage. And, I think she could do most of this by herself. We'll have to give it a try.

Thanks for the idea.

Great take on the project! :)

It's funny how we can change things that look so mundane and disposable into something useful and good looking!

3The same applies to you Tape drives should be kept as far away from contaminants as possible; for example, they shouldn't be placed directly on the carpet or kept in dusty environmentsI therefore propose an experiment

Also a groomer should not use a hand-held hot dryer on a dog drying in a stainless steel cage But there are also many facets of business ownership that entrepreneurs must stay on top of It's like buying food and paying for it over a six-month period when the food only lasts 30 daysThe more you solve them, the more new ones come up

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.
