Amazing Things You Can Make Out of Card Boxes

Do you love cards? Do you enjoy playing games and watching movies? If so, then you might want to learn some ways to make things out of card boxes. In this article, we are going to share cool ideas for using old cardboard boxes.

Cardboard boxes have become a thing of the past due to their high cost and limited availability. Many people have therefore turned to recycling or reuse them for new purposes. Below are some cool things that you can make out of card boxes.

Amazing Things You Can Make Out of Card boxes

1. A DIY Desk Organizer That Also Acts As Storage Unit 

Using card boxes as storage units is an easy way to organize your space without spending too much money on it. There’s also no room for dust buildup because they are sealed tightly. Plus, if you use a clear acrylic container on top, you won’t even know how much stuff has made its way inside!

2. An Easy Craft Center 

If you don’t have enough table space (or even floor space), you can simply set up two card boxes side by side to create an entertainment center that doubles as a home craft area. This may be ideal for those days when you need extra space for crafting but don’t have time or energy to do any actual projects.

3. A Gift Basket Decoration Kit 

If you have friends who are into art, crafts, and gift-giving, this idea could help to save them from carrying around all those bulky baskets every year at Christmas. Simply fill the containers with small gifts like tea bags, candles, or other items and tie a couple of ribbon handles across the box to secure it.

4. A Planter Box 

This is another great project for gardeners. It creates a planter that doubles as a shelf to house plants while providing a spot where visitors can leave messages for you. You can cut the bottom off an empty plastic milk jug and fasten it to the top of one card box. Fill the milk jug with soil and plant the seeds until they sprout. Once the seedlings are ready to transplant into larger pots, carefully remove the milk jug and replace it with a second card box. Then, plant the original soil and seed mixture into the new pot.

5. A Homemade Coffee Table 

You don’t necessarily have to buy coffee tables anymore. All you need is an old cardboard box filled with wood chips and some furniture glue. Add a few nails here and there and voila! Your homemade coffee table complete with a drawer for storing magazines and books. The result makes the cardboard look like solid wood.

6. A Kitchen Countertop Mat 

Are your kitchen counters getting covered in spills from cooking and cleaning? Rather than replacing your entire countertop take apart a box and use the pieces to create a mat that will fit perfectly underneath. Cut a piece of plywood to size, drill holes at regular intervals, then place your old box over the surface before drilling more holes on the undersides and screwing it down. Place hot pads under the edges so that the screws don’t pierce through. For added stability, try using a piece of styrofoam instead!

7. Clutter Control Using a Tote Bag 

If you find yourself constantly tripping over your clutter, turn a plain brown bag—yes, that’s right—into a handy tool to stash everything away. Just fold the handle of the bag onto itself and you have a compact yet spacious storage device. Use it anywhere you want; in your bedroom closet, in your car, or even in your garage. If you find yourself having trouble finding a specific item among the mess, pull it out and the entire pile is still within reach.
