These are boxes made out of crushed PBR boxes.  We drink a LOT of that here and I had been saving the boxes because our recycling doesn't RECYCLE them!  I couldn't let them go to waste, soooooo..... Here's how they go.

This is the large box.  It is made exaclty like a record box, but with different dimensions.


This is the smaller box. It is preceeded by a picture tutorial.


Start with the box top and bottom:


Put together like so:


Then fold ends together, they will curve, and staple!  I use leftovers of these around the house as baskets to hold small things like paint, needles, bobbins............

YAY!!!  Thank you both very much.

I have a friend who recycles beer cans by cutting the inside lip and using them as cups.
