Making a fabric storage box is not as complicated as it sounds. The process only requires material that might be deemed useless in your home and simple tools. These include carton boxes that are cluttering the home environment; therefore, this project is cost-effective. After the project is complete, the boxes can be inserted into a pigeon hole cabinet for effective utilization of space.
