DIY holder

This DIY holder is so simple and easy to make, that it's almost a cheat me posting it. I needed somewhere to store my postcards, polaroids and other small pieces of card. What you'll need/what I used, is

  • a small empty box
  • scissors
  • paper
  • glue
  • pen 
  • a cover image 
  • and tape.


Look at me pretending to be left-handed, so that I can take pictures with my strong-arm. haha.
Don't worry about drawing a perfect line for cutting - luckily I was able to use the actual box lines as a guide for cutting.

You can use any colour paper to cover your box, I just chose white. You can also use whatever images you want to cover it, I found an old art book lying around- so I cut up an image of Tete de Femme -  Picasso to cover it with.
I then added some bright tape strips and taped the whole thing with clear thick tape to seal it - you could also use contact paper... et voila!
