Instructions:

1. Separate the top and bottom of the craft boxes and spray with spray paint. Here we used 3 shades of blue green and painted the smallest box the lightest and the largest box the darkest (visually having the darkest box on the bottom keeps the vignette weighed down). Your options are unlimited here- go for a monochromatic looklike we did here, get crazy with 3 different bold and bright colors, or totally change things up and cover your boxes with patterned paper or fabric instead!

Helpful hint- if you spray these boxes you will need to apply a few coats as the cardboard may soak in a bit of the first coat. If you use a spray paint with paint and primer the coats will be thicker and you will need to apply fewer. Also the lighter the color the more coats of paint it will take to completely cover the box.

2. To protect the paint and give it a high shine, we finished off the paint job with a clean high gloss lacquer finish. We sprayed 1 evenly applied coat of this to get the desired look. This can be used to cover fabric or paper also.

3. Place your label in the center of the front end of the box. Here we used simple craft paper labels from the office supply store. Just a few other ideas for labels include chalkboard stickers, metal book plates, or sticker letters.

Write, stamp, or print the name of the box on your label and fill it up! Neatly stack your boxes in the office or other home space. They look great on a shelf full of books or left simply stacked out on a desk or dresser top. Use them all together or split them up based on your needs. Make a few sets to keep everything in your workspace neat and organized!
