I have a few boxes (the ones with handles & its the large size) and am wondering what I could make with them..they have no closure so I would have to put one on if I want to use it ..I was thinking as a portable toy box for my son..maybe an office organizer..

any ideas would be greatly appreciated Smiley

actually, we have been using them for years for Christmas.  My husband comes from a very large family, he's the youngest of 9 and there are countless cousins, nieces and nephews.   So, we take the boxes, wrap them in paper then add the Family's names to them so each family gets a box.  Then when everyone comes over for Christmas Eve, we give out small family gifts (food usually or crafts made by the kids).  The box goes home with the family and returned for use next year.

A few years back, I painted and stamped the outside of a detergent box and lined the inside with felt. It is a great place to store any loose photographs, letters, or other sentimental items.

If I remember correctly, I just used acrylic paint and then sealed it with clear spray paint. It peeled and flaked off after a while, so some other type of paint might work better.
