movie boxes

When we moved we lost a lot of space that we had before. One of the "space" things I miss was our movie closet. Todd had built these shelves that fit all our movies perfectly and now I was clueless as what to do with them. I had them all packed in these orange boxes and this is how they sat on our shelf. I thought about buying baskets or bins for them to go in on the shelves but after looking around and pricing them out it was going to cost more than I wanted to spend.

I found the paper at Michaels on sale for .14 cents a sheet and used two sheets per box. The ribbon I had on hand (both are from Stampin Up). I organized the movies and printed out what I wanted each one to say. I cut those out on my Cuttlebug along with a solid cardstock. I stamped the swirlies on for that little something extra.

I punched holes in the top and tied knots in the ribbon to make handles.

Much happier with this than orange boxes. To bad Todd doesn't like the labels on the front and laughed that I organized them. One of those things he puts up with being married to me. Poor guy. : )

I wish I could I could stager the boxes on the shelf but with a two year old in the house they'd never survive. Over all I think it looks pretty good.

how cute!! i'm loving the ribbon and papers you chose :D we just didn't have room for the cases anymore, even though I would have liked to keep them too :P said...

This a fabulous. I have been collecting fruit boxes that I am going to put fabric in but I was wondering how to dress them up. Your craftiness is what the doctor ordered. Thank you for the inspiration!
