Cute Cubby Cubes

Think outside the “box”

I am obsessed with cubby cubes and bins! And if you were honest with yourself you would have to admit that you are too. I mean who the heck isn’t? They are adorable! These cubbies hold storage cubes of different sizes, textures, colors, and styles. They can have windows, lids, or open tops. No matter what their shape, size, or color, they are the perfect storage solution…in my humble opinion.

Since I’m sure you probably already know what a cubby bin is (if you don’t you are about to find out), I thought it would fun to show you a unique way to use all 8 of my favorite cubbies. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find something interesting to use this upcoming holiday season.

For each recipe, layer the dry ingredients into the airtight canister, attach a printable gift tag with baking instructions, and add a decorative touch with a sprig of holly or candy cane.

Large - Fabric Cube Home Storage Box, Closet Organizer One thing I always loved to do when my kids were on Christmas break was to organize their school supplies and papers. Then, I would stock up on all the supplies they were low on such as glue, pens, paper, notebooks, etc. They loved going back to school in January with fresh supplied. To help get things in order, try ordering a few of these really cool Fabric Boxes with Wooden Lids. They have a whimsical tree design on the fabric which looks rich and cozy for this season of the year. Because the lids are made with wood, they are easy to put your child’s name on it. Be creative! They can be decorated with sports themes, glitter, rainbows, really anything your heart desires. I would put my child’s grade and the year on the lid as well. When my kids come home, I go through their papers and projects. Some I toss, others I want to keep. These boxes are the perfect size for storing by name and grade and because they have lids, they are also stackable. A real treasure I think, don’t you?
Small Fabric Cube Home Storage Box, Closet Organizer Use this “stocking-like” box to stuff as a replacement to the traditional stocking. Keep your monogrammed stockings on the mantel! They look beautiful there. The Knitted Box with Lid is the perfect size for all your stocking stuffer gifts. It is even wrapped in stocking material! These box lids can easily be monogrammed as well, use glitter, glue, a hot glue gun, foam, whatever you would normally use to monogram traditional stockings can be used for this roomy box as well. They come in charcoal and tan and will make a beautiful addition under your tree on Christmas morning.
Large Fabric Cube Home Storage Box, Closet Organizer Okay, this is it! I found the PERFECT use for these lidded boxes this Christmas. How many of you are hoping to give your child a little furry friend this year? Nothing says Merry Christmas like a pink nose and puppy breath, am I right? Now before PETA has a coronary, what I suggest is that you cut the plastic window out so air can move in and out of the box. The window is small enough that the puppy (or kitty) won’t be able to crawl out of it. Of course, please put the puppy/kitty in the box just minutes before you want to give your little one the gift. And grandparents, this will forever solidify your grandchildren’s love for you…
Fabric Home Storage Bin for Furniture Cubby Storage How about these mDesign ½ cubes? Like their bigger counterparts, these half-cubes are perfect for storing video games, books, handheld gaming systems, headsets, and controllers. What makes these especially perfect is that they conveniently fit on TV stand shelves or other shallower shelving units.
Natural Woven Storage Cube Basket Bins - Hyacinth These collapsible woven storage boxes are of course, wonderful to use in your bedroom, family room, entryway or closet, but what about as wall shelf?

So different, so beautiful, so enchanting! The possibilities are truly endless.
Natural Woven Hyacinth / Seagrass Storage Cube Basket Bin My sister Julie hosts Christmas at her house every year, and believe me, the holidays in my family are on par with a small wedding reception with 50 to 75 people in attendance. My co-worker, and fellow blogger, Laura, had an excellent idea for these stunning Hyacinth ½ cubes. She says, when she must attend a holiday party she stocks up on these cubes and when she brings a dessert or side dish, she fills the half cubes with goodies like a homemade pie, or freshly baked breads. Handy the hostess one of these baskets filled with love is the perfect way to say Merry Christmas and the host gets to keep the basket to use another time. Sweet!
Kids/Nursery Fabric Cube Storage Bin Closet Organizer These, or actually any one of our medium-sized cubes would work for this Christmas craft. Wrap 3 or 4 of these cubes with your favorite decorative Christmas wrap. Be sure to wrap the inside of the box as well. Then, fill the boxes with cozy blankets, hats, scarves, gloves, throw pillows, dog toys and more. Stack them up under the tree or near the front and back doors. If you really want something unique. Place your artificial tree withstand in one of the decorative boxes.

Now I know some of these ideas are a bit off-the-grid but I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised at how convenient these storage cube organizes can be during the holidays. There is nothing worse than having a great gift with terrible delivery. Your house will be beautiful this holiday season. I hope these ideas help you take your style to the next level.

Don’t get “wrapped” up in the small stuff. Spend more time with family and friends and less time stressing out about the little things. Don’t worry, we got you covered!
