I am back with another tutorial! You may remember last week i told you that i wanted to start making memory dex cards. I have been meaning to start them but just never seen to get time. When i got my latest DT package from Alinacutle that give me the push to start them as there was a really cool Memory Dex Die set in it. I shared it with you all in my last you tube video.
I began looking online for a memory dex storage system but i found they were so expensive! Then i had the idea to make my own. I am so pleased with it & because i have made it from chipboard its super strong! The 2 runners are made from paper straws! How cool is that?? I just coloured mine in with a permanent metallic marker. Its a fantastic box and i am sure you will agree with me if you make one :-)
These are also my first ever memory dex cards! I created them using 2 new dies from Alinacutle. The gorgeous Black Swan Die & also the adorable little Asian Girl Die As i said before the memory dex card is also created from Alinacutles Memory Dex die set. I love it as you can also create different edges with it.
If you want to have a go at making one of these boxes all you will need is some chipboard. If you don't have that you could also use an old cereal box. You will also need some scrapbook paper, 2 paper straws & i recommend a hot glue gun. I also glued some gorgeous trim around the outside of the boxes, you could also use Ribbon or whatever you have in your crafty stash.
