Recycled box - craft box

I have mentioned before that I have wanted to make a craft or colouring box for my daughter. I have finally got myself into action and made it. I have recycled an old paper box big enough to hold the right size paper and some crayons etc and covered it.

Here are the steps to follow..

I used a roll of wallpaper. I wanted to use one large piece of paper so there would be as little overlapping as possible to make it look at neat as I could get it.

The box I am covering

I opened it out flat so that it would be easier to cover.

I put the paper underneath and cut round, with a bit extra to use for overlapping underneath.

I wanted the edges to be as neat as possible. Took abit of working out where to cut.

I used some rubber stamps for the label on the front.

I didn't have enough of the same wallpaper, so I used some other bright paper for the inside.
