Stamp Storage Box With Matching Dividers-More Craft Room Storage!

Positivelypapercraft Craft room storage tutorials


Hi Everyone :-)
Today I am back with more craft room storage! I think every crafter needs somewhere to store there stamps. The great thing about this one is that you can make it in any colour/decoration you like! Its super strong as i made it from Gray board. Another cool thing is i made matching dividers so i can actually find the stamps i need without searching for ages! I hate that & it really puts me off.

Easy craft room storage, positivelypapercraft,

If you follow my YouTube channel etc you will know that i have been making loads of Craft Room storage these last few weeks. We all know that it can be expensive but i think the main thing is finding the type of storage we need. This can be tricky & then its not always in the colour or style we like. You won't have that problem with this! You can make it to match your colour scheme or style etc. Its not hard to make & its really just the same method as most of my other storage items.

This holds loads of stamps & its super strong. I also made some matching dividers which i then labelled with my Brother label machine. You can of course just hand write on your dividers or even print some off with your PC etc. You can choose to store them in any order you wish. I hope you will give this box a go. I love it & it looks so pretty in my Craft room. Especially the big Glitter Bow i made for the front.

Please find all the measurements listed below in Metric & Imperial:

2 PIECES CHIPBOARD MEASURING 9 1/2" X 6" 
OR
24.1 CM X 15.2 CM 
(MEASURE UP 4" FROM THE BOTTOM AND CUT FROM THAT MARK TO THE TOP CORNER, THIS WILL GIVE YOU THE SLOPING SIDES. DO THAT TO BOTH PIECES)

1 PIECE MEASURING 6 1/2" X 4"
OR
15.2 CM X 10.2 CM 

1 PIECE MEASURING 6 1/2" X 6" (BACK PIECE)
OR
15.2 CM X 16.5 CM 

1 PIECE MEASURING 6 1/2" X 9 1/2" (BASE)
OR
16.5 CM X 24.1 CM 

YOU WILL ALSO NEED YOUR JOINING PIECES (HINGES) WHICH ALL MEASURE 1 1/4" WIDE AND SCORED @ 5/8" ON THE SHORT SIDE. TO DETERMINE THE LENGTH JUST USE YOUR PIECES OF CHIPBOARD TO GET THE RIGHT LENGTH. 

FOR MY PATTERNED PAPER I JUST CUT IT AROUND 1/8" SMALLER THAN THE CHIPBOARD

DIVIDERS
CARD STOCK MEASURING 6 1/4 WIDE & THEN WHATEVER HEIGHT YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR DIVIDERS. 
I MADE MY FIRST ONE AROUND 4 1/2" TALL THEN MOVED UP AROUND 1/2" SO THEY GOT TALLER TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE BOX.

I PUNCHED THEM @ 2" ON THE ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD TO MAKE THE TAB.


Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.

I will be back tomorrow with some crafty Bargains/Goodies i got throughout the week.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx
