If you are interested in making your own storage box with lid, and you want to spruce it up just a bit, here is one of the easiest ways to decorate one of these boxes, so that you can place the box on a shelf, in full view, and not be disenchanted by the look of plain cardboard .
There is really only one step to this concept:
Cover your storage box and lid with wrapping paper kind of like you would a gift but wrapping the lid and box separately.
There are a lot of really fun wrapping paper designs on the market these days and many of them will even match your room decor.
