DIY: Dress Up a File Box With Artist Tape

Reading Time: 1 minute

In an effort to pretty up some of my white storage containers in my office, I came up with a quick and easy solution that involved using some of my barely-used supplies from my art school days.

Supplies needed:

  • File box (mine is from Target)
  • Artist tape
  • Small flathead
  • Xacto knife

1. Remove handles with a small flathead.

2. Start taping. To make the stripes even, I used the width of the tape as my guide. Use the Xacto knife to cut out the tape around the handles.

3. Finish taping and put the handles back on. Fast, fun, and easy!
