Oh I am a bit of a hoarder of Shoe Boxes.. I don’t know what it is about them, I just love them – they come in that perfect “little size”, you can put things IN a shoebox, shoe boxes stack neatly and they come in all sorts of colours. We particularly shoe boxes, as a gift set packaging – we love to decorate our shoe box and fill it with crafty goodies as birthday presents.. but we also like to craft with them. An in honour of our love for the humble shoebox, we have once again, pulled together a set of wonderful shoe box crafts for you!!! Check out these clever clever ideas – from handy home tidy hacks, to fun toys and games for kids! Which is YOUR favourite shoe box craft?!
