EASY 12 x 12" Paper Storage Tutorial

positivelypapercraft paper storage tutorial

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for stopping by my Blog! Today i have a tutorial on how i made this 12 x 12" scrapbook paper storage unit. I have been asked so many times if i could come up with something to store your 12 x 12" papers in. I decided the easiest thing to use would be Pizza boxes. I often use them for my monthly craft boxes so always have a supply of them. I will also put the link for them at the end of this post & also on my you tube video.

I just want to say that this tutorial was very hard to film. As you can imagine the boxes are so large & took up all of my desk. I just hope you can understand how to do it. Its really quite simple & you can also add more boxes if you would like yours bigger. Mine had 5 boxes & it turned out really strong. Mine is being used for my 12 x 12" card stock.

I am pretty pleased with the end result & all you really need is card stock and pizza boxes to make it.
I will list all the measurements below in imperial & metric & also the link to my Youtube video.

SCORE ON THE SHORT SIDE @ 1"  THESE ARE TO COVER THE TOP SECTIONS OF YOUR PIZZA BOX

SCORE ON THE LONG SIDE @ 2"

OR 10 PIECES MEASURING 30.5 CM X 4.4 CM 
SCORE ON THE LONG SIDE @ 5 CM 

YOU WILL ALSO NEED 2 PIECES OF 12 X 12 CHIPBOARD OR THICK CARD TO COVER THE SIDES OF YOUR STACKED PIZZA BOXES 
OR 30.5 CM X 30.5 CM 

YOU ALSO NEED 4 PIECES OF 12 X 12 PATTERNED PAPER TO DECORATE YOUR BOX

  1. Hello from Harper,Kansas U.S.A. Ann. Ty so very much for your 12x12 paper storage tutorial. For all of your tutorials really. I'm new to paper crafting and I learn so much from you and the videos you post. I really look forward to the next before even finishing the one I'm watching! Paper crafting gets me so excited about accomplishing something with my hands and learning new things that it's a little overwhelming at times....No l swear I'm serious and I hope my enthusiasm isn't freaking you out right now.? My projects turn out a little wonkey because I haven't proper tools yet but I keep practicing anyways so when I do have the equipment I can show you how much you have taught and inspired me. Tyvm again,be safe and God bless.
    Sincerely,Johni Kay Brazzell

  2. WOW, this was a LARGE project and one that certainly can be utilized for the 12X12 papers. Wonderful idea on the pizza boxes. Had no idea you could even purchase them. What I have done for mine was I use the free boxes you can get from the Post Office and cut them at an angle and they work great. Back then I had never thought of covering them up to make them look pretty. My next project, pretty up these boxes. TYFS
