Recycled Diaper Box

I have TONS of empty diaper boxes. I have been keeping them for a while thinking I might use them for something great one day. Well, I finally recycled one of them and this is what I came  up with!


We also have TONS of books laying around. I try to pick them up every night, but then I have nowhere to store them. I knew I needed something that was easy for Riley to get to since she absolutely loves books.

I had some bluish fabric and got my Mod-Podge out and went to work. The fabric needs to be dark since the purple Luvs box is so… loud. You can still see it through this fabric, and other than black fabric, I don’t know if any would hide the purple.

Anyway, I just wrapped the box like you would a gift. I used an envelope for the “Books”, but I plan to get something a little prettier sometime soon. I recycled another diaper box here.


Very easy, free, and Riley loves her Books box! Yea!


  1. I use diaper boxes for everything! The boxes make it so easy for the kids to see the pictures on the front of the books, that way they don't take all of the books off of the shelf. Cute fabric too, I love blue.

  2. Jaycie that is SUCH a great idea -- love the fabric you chose, too! :)

  3. great idea!! I'm your newest follower... come by and visit me at Sassy Sites! :)

  4. Wow that was a good idea I liked the fabric you picked out. If you dont mind me asking did you get it from Hobby LObby? I live in Houston and I am always looking for ways to save money (But then again aren't we all)

  5. My Grandmother was an avid quilt-maker for years. She has an amazing stash of fabrics; so large that I don't ever have to buy fabrics for anything. Ever. That's where I got the fabric! Lucky me!
