You know those boxes that are ugly on the outside? But, they are the perfect size to store ‘stuff’. Or, mail ‘stuff’. Or use for whatever you want to use the box for. But, it has mailing stickers and tape and scuff marks and just looks ugly. Beautify your boxes! It’s so easy and just takes less than 5 minutes. If you are used to doing it, it probably takes 2 minutes! Just turn them inside out. Here, I’ll show you. Here is a large shoe box. My teen has size 12 feet so this box is an awesome size. But, it doesn’t look great like this.
The first thing you need to do when you want to beautify your boxes is open the box and make sure it’s ‘unfoldable’. You want to make sure the sides are not glued but folded, with tabs used to hold the box together.
Flip it over and fold it back together (but inside out).
Ta da! Isn’t it a nice looking box now?
Here’s another box. I’ll just show you the pictures in order since the steps are the same.
The top box is the white box with the big label glued on it and the bottom box is the shoebox.
SOMETIMES, you get really lucky and the inside of the box is really pretty! But the outside is ugly or boring. Same thing. Unfold, flip and refold.
Isn’t it pretty, once it’s flipped inside out?
Here are the original boxes:
And after about 5 minutes of work on each box, here they are:
Oh, the possibilities…….
