Collapsible Box


Hi there! Thanks for dropping in today.
Yesterday, I turned a blah produce sack
into a TADA! container.

Today, I have another idea using the
same produce sack.

Trim the sack to a rectangle and
remove any labels.

Cut it into 4 smaller rectangles.

Put them side by side to form a cube.
Then pin the meeting edges together.

Connect the pinned edges using
a sewing machine or hand-stitching.
With a big needle & yarn, I made a
blanket stitch on the tops & edges.

If you have an extra sack, make a
square for the bottom
{use a plastic bag or a piece of
cloth as an alternative} and
stitch this to the sides.

Remove the pins and TADA!
you just made a cute
collapsible box!

Use it for pencils, pens & markers...

...and other art materials.

Have a colorful day!
