  4. Cut to size and glue scraps of paper onto the drawer and outer box.
  5. If you don't want to glue paper, on the drawer, where it pulls out, color the 2 sides with magic marker or a large permanent marker.
  6. Trim along the box if there are papers hanging over where you don't want them.
  7. Put drawer into box. Add things to the drawer that you like. Enjoy!
