DIY Tea Box

Make a tea box from milk cartons and some newspaper! You´ll need six milk cartons, a newspaper, a glue stick, a stapler and a pair of scissors. 1. Start with cutting off 2/3 of the milk cartons, leaving 2.5 in. high containers. Staple them together. I´ve used staples on all inner walls, that is seven places.

2. Use the glue stick and attach newspaper around the box. I´ve cut different forms from a newspaper with a lot of text, and let the pieces overlap. I´ve no newspaper on the inner bottom of the box, because it will be hidden by the tea bags. 3. Cut out “T”, “E” and “E” from a newspaper headline and stick them to the front. Then fill the box with your favourite teabags!

    Jeg har et stramt budsjett og desperat behov for å organisere matvarene i hylla mi, deriblant te. Lette etter en DIY-løsning som ikke krevde innkjøp av ekstra deler, og dette er jo helt perfekt! Man kan til og med utvide den etter behov.
