·        Metal ruler
·        Shoeboxes
·        Craft knife
·        Wallpaper
·        Paintbrush
·        Scrapbooking paste

STEP 1 Measure the bottom and sides of shoebox, then add 1 inch to each side; cut a piece of wallpaper to this size.

STEP 2 Use paintbrush to apply scrap-booking paste to the base of the box and center it on a piece of wallpaper.

STEP 3 Line ruler along the side of the box so it extends beyond the edge.  Cut straight along the inside edges of your ruler to make a flap that’s the exact width of the box plus 1 inch.

STEP 4 Apply paste to the long flaps of wallpaper.  Pull one long flap up and around the short end of the box.  Tuck and adhere extra paper inside the box.  Repeat on opposite side.

STEP 5 Apply paste to short flaps.  Pull short flaps up and over box edge to adhere.

STEP 6 Repeat Steps 1 to 5 for box lid.
 I have been dying to do this for Godess' bedroom. 

This easy project makes smart use of an embroidery hook and store-bought curtains. 

STEP 1 Unscrew a plastic 10-inch embroidery hoop; discard the inner ring. 

STEP 2 Slide two 44” by 96” rod-pocket curtain panels onto the hook and screw it back together.

STEP 3 Take two 24-inch lengths of ½-inch-wide ribbon and tie one end of each (with a double knot) onto the hoop at the gaps between the curtains. 

STEP 4 Tie the ribbons’ loose ends together in a bow. 

STEP 5 Screw a pot-rack hook into your ceiling. 

STEP 6 Slip the center of the bow over the hook to hang.
