I started with three wooden boxes from Hobby Lobby, the thin plywood kind. I picking out some scrapbook paper and ribbon from my stash.
I decided on a paisley pattern for the smallest box. I love the light blue back ground and brown paisleys.
I used a blue and brown striped ribbon for the middle sized box, our new toothbrush holder. I simply stapled the ribbon to the back of the box, snugly wrapped the box and stapled the other end on the back too. It's my favorite.
The third box got a white on silver diamond patterned paper and the lid a silver on white. It's not a shiny silver and I really like the contrast between the lid and box.
So for less than $10.00 I have two storage boxes and a toothbrush holder customized to my bathroom. I wonder how much I would hav spent retail?
Note: I put a plastic solo cup down in the toothbrush holder box to catch any liquid that remains on the toothbrushes. This will make clean up easy - just replace the cup.
