Creativity on a budget

I've been struggling for ages to find the right kind of storage for my 8x8 papers. I've seen various boxes that i've liked but at £10 each i've been put off buying them. But one day whilst pouring my bran flakes into a bowl for breakfast, i thought why not recycle the box and make my 8x8 storage out of that. So here is what i ended up with, from the cereal box into a lovely storage box.

Cereal box (1kg size)

To storage solution

Ive decided to leave mine plain. All i've used is some left over Dulux sample paint pots to disguise what the box is. (It took 3 or 4 layers to cover it up). I may decorate it in the future but at the moment i quite like the simplistic look of it.
