A4 Chipboard Paper Storage!

A4 box file tutorial positivelypapercraft


HI Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by! I did promise more Craft Room storage & today that is what i have! I am so proud of this & it turned out so much better than i thought it would. Its so strong & will happily hold quite a bit of A4 card stock. Of course you don't have to keep Card stock in it, you may want to keep your Craft magazines in it or maybe even your card scraps. The choice is yours.

Very professional looking, even inside.


Decorate your file box anyway you choose!



I even added a beautiful fabric bow

You could add charms like i did.

Extra decoration added on the front makes it look so pretty.
The great thing i love about this project is the fact you can decorate it anyway you like. You can choose colours & papers in the style that you want. As you can see in the pictures i added a beautiful fabric bow that i cut with my steel rule die. On the back i punched a hole & added an eyelet, i hung some gorgeous charms through the hole. Not something you would find on a shop bought file box!

You will be amazed how strong this is & also how simple it is to make. As long as you have some good Chipboard/Greyboard it will be super simple & it will look amazing! How pretty would it look if you had a few of these sitting together in your craft space?? I no for a fact i will be making a few more of these. Last year i bought 2 boring white ones & they have gone in the bin since i made this.

  2. Oh goodness, what a wonderful box for magazines and or cardstock. Right now I'm using boxes from the Post Office and have cut them like this one, but have not embellished them. This is so much stronger and just may give this one a go and will so much better looking on my shelf. Thank you for sharing Ann......
