Record Cover Storage Box:
1. four record albums
2. plastic Rex lace or yarn
3. hole puncher
Cut the fronts of the four record covers from the backs AND save one of the backs. Use your ruler and make marks one inch apart on three sides of the front covers (the sides and the bottom). Use the hole puncher to make holes about ¼ inch from the edge of the covers and make them one inch apart starting at the bottom. You will also make similar holes around the one back cover you saved, and make holes all around this piece, one inch apart.
Leave the ends loose on either side. Use a different piece of Rex lace or yarn to stitch the bottoms of the covers to the bottom of your box.

Your box is complete! Use it to store reusable grocery/shopping bags, gloves, scarves, toys, etc! You can also put in a plastic bag and use it for trash or as a paper recycling bin!
Elizabeth Holcombe Fedorko, aka Bethsbagz, began her checkered crafting career when at four she realized using paste on paper was better than eating it. Inspired by vintage dime store treasures, vintage fabric, and a no-fear attitude toward color, Beth crafts totes, pin cushions, wreaths, and corsages into her Dime Store Chic creations. Beth would love you to take a peek into her whimsical world at her blog.
