Thinking Inside the Box with Storage Part 3

On August 24, 2012 I shared some of our box storage solutions with you for the first time.  One them was a large wooden box that we purchased at IKEA.

 In a later blog post we stained these boxes.  It's a much nicer look.

However, it turns out we weren't done.  In part three of the evolution of our IKEA storage boxes we have added cute labels to them.

Sorry that the pictures are a little fuzzy, I should have used a tripod.  Adding these label plates wasn't very hard at all. 

First, we found brads that were long enough to go thru the wooden box and fold out thus holding the label plate in place.

Next, I found a screw that would make a hole that the brad would fit through.

Then, we took out our ruler and measured where we wanted the holes to be so that every label on the boxes would be in the same location.

Finally, I used the screw to drill holes in the boxes and we added our label plates. 

I hope this inspires you to add some cute labels to your scrapbook storage boxes.

Have a great day and happy scrapbooking.
