Scrapbook Paper Holder

Melissa found this idea on Smart-Bottom Enterprises. I thought it'd be a great idea and wanted to make my own. I went to the post office and got 3 of the medium sized flat rate boxes. (To tell you the truth I kind of felt like I was stealing, but I was assured by many that it was OK. It must have been cause no one said anything to me, but you probably shouldn't go get 20!).
I did the project differently than Smart-Bottom Enterprises for two reasons. The first reason was because I didn't follow the directions and cut the lids off the boxes, and secondly I didn't have cute duct tape.

Anyways so I first cut off the lids on one side of the box, and the other side I put together to make the box.
Then I put the boxes on top of each other and duct taped the boxes together like the pictures below.
I used wrapping paper and wrapped my box up like a Christmas present, leaving a little hanging off the front opening.
And I didn't cover the bottom because I knew it wouldn't ever be shown.
Then I chose some scrapbook paper to cover the front with. I used clear tape on the edges of the paper so it didn't show. It was kind of a hit and miss for how it was going to work out. I just had to figure out how to make the pieces of paper work and tape them so they'd stay. I know, not much help, sorry.
But I think it turned out pretty good. The only thing I don't like about it is if you have packs of paper it bends in the middle cause it's not super sturdy. But it does the trick!
Thanks Melissa for telling me about this!
