I love my shoe boxes

Materials: KNATA – Box with lid for paper, PET plastic, double-sided tape

Description: I simply cut a hole on the box, on the wider side.

Using double sided tape I covered the hole with a sheet of PET plastic.

After that I assembled the box.

So through the window, it’s easy to see what is inside.

The other way to make a shoe box from a paper box, is to write the name of shoes on it, and decorating with shoe-patterned paper.

    Have to admit the shoeboxes looks quite nice…Polaroid was what I use..but wait…they stopped making them (wipe tears)…time to convert?

    The striped shoes are from humanic, but I bought them three years ago… no idea :( Maybe you can find similar shoes in bershka, stradivarius or vagabond.

    This is a great idea!

    By the way, I love the red and white striped shoes in the middle of the first picture–any idea what brand they are so I can try to find a pair of my own?

    Wasn’t the some simular idea in Sex in the City? Taking pictures of the shoes and glue the picture outside of the box.

    Worth while looking at the homepage, although I don’t understand a word – nice ideas though, e.g. for decoupaging ikea clothes hangers.
