How not to: We know these things need to go upstairs but why should they cause such a mess on the stairs?
Plan: To make a personalised stair box you will need:
  • one cardboard box per person (make sure the width of the box is no bigger than the width of your staircase steps)
  • double-sided sticky tape
  • patterned washi tape
  • gift labels (with string)
  • different types of leftover wallpaper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • a photo of each stair box recipient

Step one: Measure the length, width and height of each box and mark out the measurements on the wallpaper. Cut carefully and then stick the wallpaper to each box using the double-sided tape.Step two: Use the washi tape to add a decorative trim to the upside of each box.

Step three: Take the family pictures and use a pencil to draw a circle around each person’s head. If you need a stencil, you the base of the washi tape.

Step four: Cut out the circular headshots and stick each one to a different parcel label with some craft glue.

Step five: Finally, stick each label to a different box, securing the string inside each box with some tape. Hang the label over the side so that everyone can clearly see which box belongs to whom.
After: Say goodbye to clutter with these orderly stair boxes which will hold everybody's bits and pieces until they are ready to be returned to the right place.
