Do it yourself - Utility box

Again it is a box similar to thread box, but with some

1. You will need  a box ( I have used shoo box), 
some waste card boards, white gum.

2. If the corners are weak, secure it with cello tape.

3. Measure the height and width of the box and cut the
 card board such that
height=height of the box + 1 or 2 extra inches to paste at the bottom
width= width of the box

4. Just scratch along the line with scissors and fold it as shown.

5. Then cut the card board as shown.

6. Then fold the pieces back and front alternatively as shown.

7. Insert this card board in to the box and paste it. You can mark
the line where to fix it.

Need not worry much if it does not fits, just insert the card board into the box, if it does not fits then you can trim along the sides
and then check it again.

8. You can fix as many as you wish to make the rooms...
I have used here three.

9. Let it dry and paste the color papers. I have used collage method to
paste the papers. You can see it here .

Then, arrange your things as you wish...
I using this box to store my daughter's socks, kerchiefs,
hand towel, Id card....


  • If you want the compartments to be more strong then you can
paste the sides also, for this you should take extra inches in the width and fold it and paste as the bottom.

  •  You can also use the  papers from the magazines instead of color papers.
