Easy Craft Tool Kit Tutorial

I love making things out of stuff someone might throw away normally, like all those plastic containers or jars we accumulate. Or this...

I don't know what they're technically called, but those things that carry 6 bottles of soda.I thought it would be handy to turn this into an organizer for my all my scissors, rulers, etc. This is what I used for mine...

-the soda holder thing
-Mod Podge
-wrapping paper
-another box (optional)

First thing I did was use the other box to make the bottom of the holder more sturdy. Plus there were some holes in the bottom I wanted to cover so my scissors wouldn't poke holes through the paper.

Then I started wrapping the thing in wrapping paper using the Mod Podge to get a smooth finish. I started with the bottom and worked my way up.

Next the sides and folding the excess down into the holder to hide it. Continue to wrap and Mod Podge until the whole thing is covered.

To finish it off I added some embellishments; some ribbon around the handle and some buttons.

  4. I'm ♥ing it! I, too, like to make use of good packaging that others would trash. It's like getting free stuff! Thanks for sharing how you did this I have about 6 roomy Sonic drink holders on hold right now for something just along these lines!
