DIY File Folder Box (Using Fabric & an Old Box)

I kept telling my husband that I needed a box for all my file folders.  Nothing fancy, but definitely something to control my growing chaos and love for all things file folders.  But, as usual, I didn't have any money to spend on a silly box.  And so.  I got creative.  

I found a box that was the perfect length for file folders and I cut off the top box tabs.  I dug through my fabric stash and found a single piece of fabric that was just big enough to cover the box properly. 

Using hot glue, I began to tightly pull the fabric around the box and secure it.  I placed the box in the middle of the fabric and pulled the fabric around the outside and into the middle of the box.

Notice how my fabric just covers a few of the top inside inches of the box, not the whole inside.  You could cover the whole thing if you really wanted to, but since it does not really get seen, I did not find it necessary or worth the use of my fabric :)

This file folder box is WAY cuter than any I would have found at the store, and it was a total frugal option with a $0 purchase price!  Now my file folders have this really great and cute home in which to be stored.
