I’ve haven’t been able download email or pictures for the past two days! I figured out that my external hard drive was full. All the video tutorials I’ve made and pictures I’ve taken have filled it up already! I went to an electronics store and upgraded to a fancy shmancy new one.
This resulted in an eyesore of wires and power cables. I couldn’t live with that! Using the box the hard drive came in, I whipped up an upcycled solution to hide the wires and power cables. That said, I do NOT recommend hiding any adapters in the box as they can get hot, but if you must, then punch some air holes on the top and sides to allow heat to escape. Use the air holes as another design element and create cool patterns!
I’ll show you the basics of covering a box, a quick and dirty way to restyle a box, and let you in on some of my secret design techniques.
All you need is a pair of scissors, X-acto knife, ruler, Tempaper (contact paper or normal paper), and glue.
