12 x 12 Chipboard Paper Storage

chipboard handmade paper storage unit,

Hi everyone!
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.

  5. Just love all these storage boxes. Have ordered the greyboard and paper already. What double sided tape are you using as I notice that there appears to be 2 different types. Can’t wait for my goodies to arrive. I hope we don’t clear Amazon out of all their stock, lolxxxxxx

  6. Hi Ann. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial! I always love storage projects. I have a question, the link you had in the YT video for the A3 black cardstock doesn't work any longer. Could you tell me the weight (gsm) and size you used? Was it 24" x 12"? And the weight? Not sure as they seem to have different weights on the LimeTree Craft website. Thank you! Janelle
