Paper Pumpkin Box meets Project Life

Morning all,

Sorry I have been missing; my brother came home and I took some time off to go fishing with him and my dad. Usually he comes home Father's Day weekend then is home all week but this year he got his dates mixed up so it was last min. lol Then I ended up having a bad flair up over the last few day's here so not been feeling too hot. I'll share the card from the hop next week I already have the post scheduled for the color round up next week to go so it will happen :)


Due to me not feeling great this week the Paper Pumpkin Pick-up Class will be live June 26 so you can still sign up for the class if you would like to! For details and how to sign up visit the Pumpkin Pick-up Page.

I shared awhile ago that I finally got to the end of January with my Daily Project Life Journal and here is the picture of the box so far.


As you can see my box idea is pretty full, which I figured it would maybe hold 3 months but it just fits 1 month. lol So I needed to figure out what and how to store it because I wanted to wait till the end of the year to put it in my album. I want to see what it all looks like. So brain storming started....then the light bulb went off! I saved the Paper Pumpkin boxes because they work really good to store stuff in another plus for joining My Paper Pumpkin :)


I opened up the box and removed the lid using a box cutter. Really easy to do just follow the creased line.


I still have lots of the wrapping paper from the Holiday Catalog so I cut a piece big enough to wrap the box as I didn't want the red box.


I attached the Wrapping Paper to the ends of the box first so I cut slights on the sides.


I folded over the sides like your wrapping a present and creased the paper. I then cut on those creases and notched out the one corner, because I didn't want to make it look like a wrapped present I just wanted the edges to be flush for finished look.


I then folded over the sides and glued to the edges. I took my scissors and cut the excess wrapping paper off on the inside.


I wanted the inside to have a finished look since it will take a little while to fill it up. So I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock to fit inside the box.


I then pulled off the decoration from the other box that was on the front and attached it to the front of the Paper Pumpkin Box.


Here is the side view check out all that room baby! lol I think I will be able to get a total of 3-4 month's in this box so I will probably have 3 boxes at the end of the year but these will fit better on my designated shelf area. So there you go a mini tutorial for how to changed your paper pumpkin boxes into a storage box for your project life. :)
