Up-cycle Storage

Hi All! Welcome to Lady Katy Bugs, where we inspire you to create!

Today I was going through my craft room trying to organize and put everything away after our remodel of the room. I found I wanted to organize a few things differently. To do that I needed storage… so I raided my gift wrapping stash and found an old box that had a magnetic closure with a company name on it and a tin that once had cookies in it. Both needed a little TLC to fit in with my decor where I wanted to use them.

In came the UP-CYCLE!!!

Box Supplies:

  • Box
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Fabric ribbon

Box Instructions:

  1. Warm hot glue gun.
  2. Hot glue Ribbon on box where the logo needed to be covered to make it pretty and match the decor.
  3. Let cool, fill and enjoy.

Tin Supplies:

  • Tin
  • Contact Paper
  • Washi tape
  • Crafter’s glue (optional if for some reason your washi doesn’t stay in place)

Tin Instructions:

  1. Measure and cut out the contact paper how it will improve the look of your tin. (For mine I only needed to hide the top.)
  2. Apply contact paper and washi tape as desired, gluing if necessary, and let dry or cure.
  3. Fill and enjoy.

I hope you found this useful and it inspires you to create in someway. Have a great day!

I am a mom of 2, wife, and am always looking to create something myself instead of buying it. I met Katy from Little Katy Bugs after becoming a mom, and we both love to craft, both have active families, and a tactful way of telling others what we truly think. I LOVE THAT!!! Art is subjective and so is crafting. So, you may not love everything we make or do, but our goal is to inspire you to create yourself and make things that you will LOVE! We do still sell some of our crafts on the site, at craft fairs, and Katy now participates in a booth store front. Check out our Facebook page for more on the booth. Sometimes we just need inspiration and camaraderie. I hope we can help provide those things to you. Sincerely Donna Beth, a Co-Blogger of www.LittleKatyBugs.com
