Nifty Christmas Storage Idea

I have a friend who spends $20+ for special boxes to store her vintage Christmas balls in.  There is no way on God's green Earth that I was going to pay that much. So I found this idea via Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try.

I bought myself some new boots right before Christmas and they cam in a nice tall box that wasn't too deep.  I went to the dollar store and bought a package of cups  and hot glued them to the bottom.  They fit perfectly!  Voila!  Ornament storage box for a dollar!

I was able to fit at least two ornaments in each cup.  So...this baby holds at least 56 ornaments.  I just put a nice thick layer of bubble wrap and tissue paper on top and stored them away til next year.
