I always have lots of tiny doo dads on my desk, and never a place to put them.. And as a New Years Resolution I vowed to become more organzied.. And I'm doing it.. I just had to share this because it came out so well even thought i should i have lined the inside.

one- I used the pattern from Mirkwood designs..Which I can't find right now.. But this is exactlly like it  http://www.paperzone.com/cornerbox7t.html  *this will open a PDF*

I simply printed it out, I chose to cut the little handle shaped humps off.. But you can leave them if you'd like.
Then I traced it onto a Dr. pepper carton,(i use these for everything!!) and cut it out.
Next you will need to crease the edges really well, To make sure you don't have a problem folding it later.
Then I glued comics onto the cardboard pressing down and making sure no bubbles appeared.
Then cut out and punch holes on the corners.. i chose to punch two, and i have done three to create a  "lacing" effect. I do it just because I like it.. But you do what suits you.
Tie the corners together with ribbon.
Ta Da here is the finished product!

Seasick Sarah had a golden nose
Hobnail boots wrapped 'round her toes
When she turned blue all the angels screamed
They didn't know they couldn't make a scene.

She had to run, run, run run, run.
