Make your own professional looking sectioned Box

Positivelypapercraft storage box tutorial


Hi everyone!
Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by to check out today's tutorial.  I am soooo excited about today's project & so proud of it to! I just love the way it turned out & i will be most definitely making more of these. This box is just so cute & the best thing is its super, super strong. I am sure you will love it if you make one or maybe two or three!

I had the idea in my head of those boxes that pop together with fasteners, i think they are made for CD storage but i am not 100% sure. Mine is just for show (the fasteners not the box) & i think it just looks so cool. I made mine to hold my embellishments but you can store whatever you like in yours. Another great thing is this box is sectioned so it has 3 compartments, great to store bits & bobs in it.

My box is made from old cereal boxes that i glued together so my pieces are extra thick. There is no need to go out & buy chipboard. As long as you have some cereal boxes or the backs off 12 x 12 paper pads, your good to go. Make sure you head over to my you tube channel to watch my step by step tutorial. I will put the video link below but i can not do that until the video is 'live'. As i keep saying, please subscribe to my channel and then you will get a notification when my video is published. It then saves you waiting for the video link to be put on here.

  3. This is a wonderful box. I love how you have done the corners. It does resemble the boxes that snap together on the corners. I actually have 2 of those that I'm using right now & have had them for a number of years & are still in terrific condition. I'll be making one of these for embellishments I think. TYFS
