12 x 12 Chipboard Paper Storage
Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today! I hope you are all having a lovely Weekend. Last night was quite bad with storm 'Dennis' but i think we got of lightly compared to some places in the UK. I hope you managed to avoid the worst of it. On the plus side its a good excuse to stay home & craft.
Today you will be pleased to see i have more craft room storage! Even better is that its for 12 x 12" papers. My idea came from the A4 magazine file that i made the other day. I new there had to be a way to make a bigger one. That is one of the reasons i bought the A3 grey board from Amazon.
I also added some little reinforcements on all 4 joining corners. For this i used a 2" circle punch. The actual length of the box is 13 1/4" because i store some of my papers in 12 x 12 plastic sheets. They have a 1" strip down the sides that has holes punched out so i new making the box 12" long would not be big enough for mine. You can store lots of papers in this & again its very strong & sturdy.
You can find all the measurements listed below in Metric & Imperial.
