Organizing Using Little Metal Boxes

I bought these boxes on clearance a couple years ago and was excited when I finally thought of a way to use them. My boys have eraser collections and needed a place to store them (besides all over their rooms). I also wanted a boo boo box that would be easy to grab and take outside during the warm months. There’s always little accidents that happen and I like to be prepared.

I used scrapbook paper, a glue stick, letter stamps, and other embellishments to personalize the boxes for their collections. Now they can keep all their erasers in one place.

Then I made the boo boo box using similar crafting supplies. Once the box was done I added the first aid supplies. It’s perfect to take to the playground or by the pool.

    My son collects little erasures too. He earns them for good behavior at school so now he has a ton. What a cute way to store them.

    I love those metal tins. You made them so cute. I find I’m much more inclined to keep things organized if it’s cute. 😉

    I need a boo boo box… but my kids would prob take it someplace and I’d never see it again!

    Those are super cute. My kids probably have enough eraser to fill a whole box too!
