Re-purposed DIY Cardboard and Velvet Fabric Storage Boxes

As I was going through my clothes I knew I would need boxes in my dresser drawers for things. Enter the velvet fabric cardboard storage box makeover.

This DIY is actually super easy and the best part is you can keep the cost low while making old shoe boxes look like a million bucks!


– Shoe boxes or cardboard storage boxes – Glue gun – Stretch velvet fabric – Scissors – Chipboard


Get your cardboard box ready by tracing the bottom of it onto chipboard and cut out. 

Cut your fabric out for the box. Make sure you leave plenty extra so that it can fully cover your box.

On the 2 short sides of the box fold the fabric over and glue down to the inner corner at the bottom inside of the box. Make sure you have pulled the fabric tight.

For the 2 longer sides you will notice that you fabric should pretty effortlessly fold into a triangle point, as if you were wrapping a gift box.
