From this to that Friday Box style

For those of you who are newer on here, Fridays are my favorite, bc I love posting often everyday items that I turn into something else.

A year or so ago I posted "From Box to Bin" here. I took some of the many many many! Girl Scout cookie boxes I had and turned them into cute bins for my house. I still have MORE to do! To date, that is still one of my fav posts. :)

From this:


I even posted a tutorial on how to make this bin yourself on the original post linked to above if you'rein the mood for a little DIY project of your own.

Well, there is sooooo much else you can do with boxes. I never got to show you my kids' Valentine boxes this year, so I thought I would show you those today as more items you can make with a regular box/container around the house.

My daughter used an oatmeal container to make a purple minion for hers. :) Turned out much easier than I thought it would be. He looks a little funny to me, but she was happy, so I was too! :)

And I have to say I absolutely love the trash can my son made out of a Nike shoe box. LOVE!

So, don't throw out ALL of your boxes. Keep a small stash in the attic for that one time you wish you still had some laying around. :) And I'll be showing your more ways to recycle some of that household trash soon too!

Hope you have a great weekend!
