DIY Storage Drawers using Beauty Box
 I made this more than a month back. Being a religious blogger who just clicks and forgets, I did the same. Today while searching for something, I bumped into this. So, I made it more pretty and presentable with the ribbons and clicked few more picture. Thanks to the good response you gave in FB, I made this collage etc for you guys. I hope you make this one with your old vellvette boxes which might be collecting dust otherwise.

Looks good?

Read beyond the jump to see the step by step how-to.

I tried to make myself clear hear but then I was limited by space in the picture. I hope you get my point *wink*. If not, then please comment.

I luckily had some ribbon with me but best is to use the ones that they give with the boxes. Recycling at its best!

How to make Storage Drawers with Beauty Boxes

To protect the drawers, you can use the pink sheet that comes with vellvette box as a dust guard. So, when it gets dirty, you can just replace the sheet. Voila!

Liked this post? Do let me know. I will search my computer for more DIY posts. LOL.

  1. I LOVED IT!
    i had been thinking of doing a DIY with the vellvette boxes by joining them n making one big box with sections but this is better:)
    n i have 6 boxes by now so i can make two like these!! thankooo soo much for this :* <3

      You are getting them for 6 months now? You can have cute twin drawers now. I am glad I helped :D

    2. hey, i have a little query...when u put the ribbon, how did u secure it in the back side? with tape or something?
      what i did was, i made two holes n put the ribbon in 1 hole n looped it in the other n tied a knot at the back its good but i want to do ur method:P
      do let me know:) thanks!

    3. I have made just one hole but the whole is very small. As a result the ribbon does not come out of its own. I have not taped or glued it because that way, I won't be able to change the ribbon when it gets dirty after days of use. Your method is great. Do share the link/images

  2. Oh, cool!
    I like DYI-things!
    I made my cosmetics boxes in papier-mache techniques :)

    1. I always wanted by never tried papier-mache. Will do soon to make jewelry boxes. Thanks for inspiring.

  12. Hi, I am Lisa a Makeup Artist Brisbane. I really like your blog. I wonder that how you chose this unique name " Sweet and Bitter Blog". You are really very creative dear.... I think if heavy base can be used to hold the drawers then it would be more steady and durable. Overall ..... great work..... Hats off to you.
