I've had this little file box for at least 3 years now. It came from Target and was full of cards for every occasion. The box was so cute that I started using it for more than cards.
The bright red top was fading to pink and just didn't go with my house very well. The files also needed a major overhaul, so I pulled out my favorite pack of scrapbook paper and went to town.
I recovered all of the outside surfaces in coordinating colors.
Then I took these dividers and used them as a template to make new ones. The scrapbook paper is really thick, so I just threw out the old ones.
I added labels by cutting down blank white packaging labels.
It didn't take long to file my pile 'o junk. Now I know where everything is! And it matches.
However... If I was to do it again, I wouldn't use heavy-duty scrapbook paper. It's pretty and will be durable, but it didn't cover the corners like I hoped it would. I think I'd try wrapping paper or even a pretty contact paper. Or spraypaint. Or just buy a new one! Oh well, it was fun and it works and it was free. And it matches!
I added a sweet bow to keep little hands out! The original box has a magnetic closure, but it doesn't work with the added layers of paper. And now you know the REST of the story!
I'm partying today!
