Boxes for Organizing Small Parts

Want an easy way to store small parts in the garage, shop, sewing/craft room? I use recycled cardboard or regular cardboard boxes to make smaller boxes which organize many small pieces or parts.

Approximate Time: Ten minutes per box.

Supplies:

  • cardboard
  • rule/straightedge
  • box cutter/craft knife
  • tape (package, masking, box tape)
    Ad
  • printed labels, if needed

Instructions:

  1. Get piece of cardboard.

  2. Cut to size wanted using box cutter or craft knife.

  3. Cut out four corner pieces as shown.

  4. Score sides and ends and fold up on scores.

  5. Tape sides and ends together to form box.

  6. Make labels, if wanted and glue on to end of box.

  7. If many boxes are to be made, make template.
