Christmas Day is bound to be a blur of wrapping paper, ribbon and cardboard boxes. But the question every year in our household is what to do/store all the empty boxes. Well here are 5 handy tips that could be useful for you.
f storage is a slight problem in your home then cardboard boxes are a brilliant solution. There is no need to worry about their dull, boring exterior either. If your house is beautifully decorated with stunning wallpaper then why not use some to decorate your box. This way it will feel like an added addition to the room instead of an out of place object.
Children’s Toy Box
A large cardboard box is an ideal toy box for your child. They are study and if decorated right a wonderful addition to your child’s bedroom or playroom. It could be painted in their favourite cartoon characters or in a funky wrapping paper. A den is also a child’s best idea of a game. A couple of sturdy boxes would be ideal for them to play with and hide in. If you’re feeling more artistic, why not attempt to make a dolls house for a girl or a spaceship for a little boy.
If you are the parents of a pampered cat or spoilt rabbit, then why not give them a dream home from the spare boxes. Just remember to cut out little doors and windows for them to enter and leave. Stack two together to turn their small modest home into a two story mansion and they will love you forever!
If you are like my friend who is constantly loosing things and asking to borrow your jewellery, why not make them a handmade jewellery box so they can keep everything together. This is a perfect way to combine both a present and storage idea. You can create sections for all your different types of jewellery, a section for rings, necklaces, earrings etc. Paint the box the colour of their room or decorate with beads and crystals.
Most people have special photographs and souvenirs that they are always trying to find a place to keep them safe, but not too safe that you can’t remember where you put them! Therefore a little memento box is a perfect way to turn an old box into a special keepsake area. Decorating it nicely and keeping it on your shelf or under your bed where it is easily accessible is recommended.
