Country Living: Reader’s Digest Book Storage Boxes

Have you picked up the July/August issue of Country Living? I always adore the red, white and blue summer issues!

I’ve shared before some fun projects using the insides and outsides of old Reader’s Digest books. Well, here’s one of my favorites as featured in the CL idea notebook on page 52 of this latest issue, book storage boxes!I cut and assembled box sides from one book’s patterned cover and glued them into the cover section of another. You can create paper tape to cover raw box edges by splicing long, narrow lengths of paper from the remaining inside cover of the cut book and peeling it away into thin paper sections to glue to the edges, or use patterned or solid washi tape. My full instructions are in the current magazine or online.

Here are some of my close-up shots of the boxes:If you craft these or other boxes, you might like to label them!
