I have lots of diaper boxes around here, so when I saw the idea of covering them with fabric, I jumped at that. I love bins, but they are fairly expensive, so I rarely buy them. But now I have lots of bins around my house that are cute and very cheap and easy to make! I love being able to use things I would normally throw away to make something useful. For this particular project I covered one diaper box and one plastic basket that I got from Dollar Tree. I found the fabric on the clearance rack at Hancock's, so it was less than $5 for all of it. I just cut the fabric to a size that would cover the box, sponge-brushed on some glue (spray adhesive would probably work better, though), and carefully pressed on the fabric. I just sort of folded and cut to make it work around the corners and edges. See how it turned out!
