The ideal crafting setup is very personal. Function is critical, but style also plays an important role. One of the best things about the DreamBox is that it can always be adjusted to fit your changing needs and preferences in both of these areas.
One popular trend we've seen amongst DreamBox owners is adding decorative paper to the fronts of the clear totes. Read on for details on how to make your own.
Decorative Tote Covers
Our friend, Holly Yarbrough
, provided these cut files to be used in Cricut Design Space, which can be accessed by anyone with a Cricut ID. No need to resize, they should fit perfectly.
Holly's advice for anyone using the cut files:
"Since the totes are slightly larger than 12" x 12", you will need paper slightly larger as well. (You will also need the 12" x 24" mat to cut these on your Cricut machine). I cheated and spliced together two 4.5 x 6.5 pieces from a small stack book. If I hadn’t told you, you would never know!"
Holly also labeled her totes using her Cricut machine.
"I used the October Twilight font and cut them on white matte oracle 651. Since this is on the outside of the tote, if you want to change the appearance of your workbox, you can easily change out the inserts I created without having to redo the labels."

Small Space Craft Solution
Holly moved her WorkBox 2.0 across the country from a large home to a unique downtown loft with well under half the square footage. After the move, she made several upgrades to her box. She swapped out her fabric totes for the new clear totes
and added the door upgrade kit
"I went from having a room dedicated to crafting, to a wall under the stair case in our loft. I didn’t truly appreciate my WorkBox or EZ View Desk until I set this space up. Before, if I had a project in progress I could just leave everything out in the open and simply shut the door. Because my craft room was carpeted, I seldom closed my WorkBox. It was usually wide open with the desk up. Now I fully utilize the ability to close everything up and hide my projects away when we have guests. The space that I craft in doubles as our guest room as well as my husband’s office and a second living room."
