Steps:

  1. Use scissors to remove the flaps and lid from the box, if necessary. The begin wrapping it with tape, starting at the top edge. If you want to add a contrasting stripe, leave a gap and then keep wrapping with tape. TIP: For best results start and stop each layer of tape on the same side of the box and overlap the edges a little bit.

  3. The final layer of tape, at the bottom of the box, should overhang about half way (as shown below). Use scissors to snip the tape at the corners, then fold the long sides down.

  13. Put a plastic bag into the box and enjoy your new trash bin! TIP: If you find that the can slides around or tips over in the car you can add a few strips of Velcro (hook side only) to the bottom of the box. It will stick to the carpet and stay in place.
