Shoe box from ordinary PAPPIS box

019

Materials: PAPPIS box and SATTA handles

Step by step:

stage 1. Take the boring old PAPPIS box, and measure its internal proportions (I’ll help you – it’s 32 X 24 cm)

001

002

003

004

stage 2. Cut a sheet of cardboard or any other hard material to that size. It will be your shelf, or divider

005

006

stage 3. Measure the height of your shoe (add an extra cm or two) and draw a line inside the box (on both sides)

007

008

009

stage 3. Take pushpins and position them along the line (3 for every side)
Use a piece of cardboard in each so they won’t stick out. These will be your shelf holders.

stage 4. Insert the shelf

stage 5. Now we need to create some elevation from the surface on which the box stands, so the lid will open easily. I used cork to create three legs, but you can opt to use bottle caps, more cardboard, bars of gold, whatever you feel like.

stage 5. Your box is now complete, and indeed it is a very respectable box in its own right. However, if you wish to make it a bit more awesome, you could attach a handle. I choose the SATTA handle. just make two holes and bolt the thing like you would do on any other drawer. You will find the bolts are a bit long, so you could increase the width of the cardboard by adding more cardboard from the inside.

I liked it so much I made a whole closet from it (024)
