I feel bad throwing away old or ripped books. Books are my treasures and I can’t get rid of them just because. I found an easy DIY project for kids to recycle those old or ripped books and use them to make a cute cardboard storage box. I don’t have to throw them away and the box won’t take extra space.

Many people throw things away so easily these days. Things you can recycle are the best organizers for your kid’s room. I felt extra eco-friendly and made something cute and fun!

 

Tools:

  • Your Hands!

  • Brushes

  • Glue (Spray Glue is better)

Supplies/Ingredients:

  • Cardboard box of an average size (Use a recycled cardboard box If you want to be extra eco-friendly)

  • Used/ripped books

Instructions

Before you start, make sure that the floor is stable and find a room where you can do a fun DIY project. (The glue can be sticky. When kids touch nice furniture with sticky hands, you know what happens.)

 

1. Start ripping the book. (This is the hardest part. Don’t feel bad!) When you rip them, you can cut them neatly, but I just like ripping them with my hands. It gives them a nice edge.

2. Glue the box with a brush or spray glue. Also glue the corner of the ripped paper and put it on the box. Arrange them the way you like them. A little bit of layers and colors give a playful look.

3. Make sure that all parts of the box have pieces of paper glued on. You can glue the bottom of the box, but I didn’t do it.


You can have a fun DIY project for kids with things you can recycle! I hope you enjoy this DIY project as much as I did!
