DreamBox 2

I recently got a DreamBox 2.0 from Create Room and I’ve spent the last week putting it together, organizing it and personalizing it with peel and stick wallpaper and tote covers. Today I want to show you how to make these cardstock tote covers for your DreamBox using a Cricut.

These are so easy to make and will only take you about an hour. Now you may be asking why would I want to make covers for the totes? Isn’t there a rule in organizing to use clear bins so you can see whats inside? Well this is true but visually I don’t love seeing everything that’s inside the totes. I love seeing a beautiful DreamBox craft organizer that’s the focal point of my craft room. Honestly it’s mostly for aesthetics but it gives the DreamBox some personality by adding the covers and wallpaper. Your DreamBox is a blank canvas to show off your creativity.

How to add wallpaper to your DreamBox

Want to add wallpaper to your DreamBox also? It was really easy to do and took under an hour. The hardest part was figuring out which peel and stick wallpaper to order. I used this wallpaper. Because of the pattern repeat on this wallpaper I needed two rolls. I have a lot left over that I may use for another project. Check out this YouTube video. Love the wallpaper you can get it here.

How to make cardstock covers for the DreamBox totes with your Cricut

Here’s What You’ll Need

Upload SVG in Cricut Design Space

Make sure to download the SVG file above. Once the file is unzipped follow these steps to upload the SVG files in Cricut Design Space. You will find the upload button on the left tool bar towards the bottom. There are 3 sizes of tote covers. If you are using the same color of cardstock for all three you can cut multiple size on a 12×12 sheet of cardstock.

Cricut Design Space

Once the files are uploaded you will notice that the large tote is larger than the 12×12 Cricut mat. It needs to be rotated 317º and you will be able to cut it on a 12×12 mat with 12×12 cardstock. When you are ready to cut select “Make It” the green button in the top right.

Make sure that the mat selected is 12×12. If only 12×24 is available make sure that your large tote is rotated to 317º. Next select continue.

Cricut Design Space Materials

I am using a 65lb cardstock. I like to use the medium cardstock setting and the fine point blade.

Once I am ready to cut. I will grab my light grip mat, cardstock and brayer. I will place the cardstock on to the mat and roll the brayer on top to make sure it is adhered.

Load your mat into the Cricut machine and press play. Once the Cricut is done cutting and the arrows are flashing unload your mat.

It’s as easy as that. To remove your cardstock from the mat without curling the paper flip the mat over and remove the mat from behind the cardstock.

You will need to repeat this process a few times. It’s helpful to have multiple mats ready to go. Depending on how you configured your DreamBox you could need up to 80 covers. I cut just over 55 covers for my DreamBox.

Adding Tote Covers to the Dreambox

The cardstock tote cover simply fits snuggly into the front of your tote. You can see below that if you don’t use glue dots or double sided tape the cardstock can move or tilt backwards. I suggest using glue dots in the top left and right corners. They are barely visible. You can also use clear scotch tape and tape them from behind.

I love the way the covers came out. The colors compliment the wallpaper on the doors. Overall the DreamBox that was feeling very much like a white box now has some personality. I even matched the cardstock and wallpaper colors to my branding.
