Spice holder

I was putting my groceries away the other day and realized my box of crackers was empty so took it out of the cupboard to recycle.


Then I went to put some other things away and got frustrated with all the little spice packets everywhere.


Then I realized a funny coincidence....they were the exact same width as the cracker box!


So, you know I just had to make something with the box right then and there~


Here's what you need to make your own:


Materials:
-1 box
-pretty paper
-craft knife, pencil, ruler, and cutting mat (or scissors)
-glue and sponge brush

Steps:
1) Draw out the shape of your box before you cut.  Measure about 2.5" from the bottom on one side and draw a line across.


2) On the opposite side, measure and draw a line about 4" up from the bottom.


3) On the sides, draw a diagonal line to connect the lines you've just drawn.


4) Now just carefully cut along all of your lines with a craft knife.


You should end up with something that looks like this:


5) Use your box as a template to cut out your paper, one for each side, including the inside.


6) Paint some glue onto the sides and adhere your papers.


And you're done!



It's a little thing but it makes me feel organized~


Anyone out there who actually knows how to cook probably doesn't use these spice packets, but I rely on them heavily.  If you're like me...tell us how you keep the packets from spreading throughout your cupboard.  Leave a comment below~
