Upcycled Shoe Box

Last weekend, I attempted to upcycle an empty shoe box to a CD storage box with a roll of adhesive waxed wrapping paper. The outcome was satisfactory and the effort was well worth it. Even though this is not a noble idea, I am happy to have made it myself and not to mention that I managed to save a few dollars from buying a brand new CD storage box. 

Cost of a roll of wrapper = $5 (wrapped 2 boxes + excess)
Cost of wrapper for each box = ~$2.50
Cost of a brand new CD storage box (about similar size) = $5

Voila! It's 50% savings there.
