This project is easy to make and can be done with things from your house. All you need are a few simple things and it doesn't take long to make this up for a quickly organized space.



  1. First glue the box completely shut.
  2. Cut one side of the box out.
  3. Put a dot of glue on the box and attach the jute cord. Begin wrapping.
  4. Continue wrapping the cord to the top.
  5. Fit the fabric in the box and roughly cut it to size.
  6. Fold the edges over and glue them down.
  7. First glue the corners of the fabric to the corners of the box then glue the middle and then glue the rest down

Is the jute necessary to strengthen the boxes? Or is it just for looks? I'm not into "natural" materials for decorating, but I'm thinking I could cover the outside of the box with fabric, and then put in a liner as you describe.
