How to Decorate Cardboard Boxes to Store Things

One of the easiest crafts with cardboard boxes to do is to decorate them to your liking and reuse them to store all the things you want ! It is a creative, decorative and cheap way to keep everything you can imagine organized and stored.

Different techniques that we can use to Decorate the Boxes:

  • paints: tempera paints, markers, finger paint (the little ones)
  • Gift Wrap
  • stickers
  • diary paper
We have decided on washi tape : decorative adhesive tapes, because it is easy to use, it has many possibilities and we love the result!

What do we need to decorate the boxes?

  1. a cardboard box
  2. washi tape
  3. Scissors

How do we decorate them?

Take the box and remove (if it still remains) the seal that you used to close it. Choose the washi tape you are going to use. Tuck the flaps inside the box if you don't need to cover what you are going to store. And get to work! You can decorate it as a toy box.
Tip : Decorate the cardboard boxes with children's motifs or you can even ask your children to decorate them themselves, or all together, doing a family activity...picking up the toys will become another part of the game.
