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.

Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today. I am rather excited about Today's project! Quite a bit of work went into it and i am pleased with the result. Its not perfect but then again its handmade. Its all made from paper pad backing covers/old cereal boxes & anything which resembles chipboard. I doubled up the cereal boxes and also the paper pad backing sheets as i wanted them to be quite thick.
My storage unit holds 14 Ink pads. It will not hold Stampin Up pads though. The paper i used to cover it is so beautiful!! Its from Stamperia & its called Wonderland. Of course you can choose whatever you like to decorate yours. I also put some fancy Gold corners on that i have had in my stash for a while. They were glued on with my favourite Super Glue i get from Amazon!
I love this glue & its the best i have ever used! Once that Glue is on, trust me! Its not coming off again. I will put any links i have for products at the end of this post. I normally just put them under my Youtube videos but i will also put them on here as well.
I am thrilled at how strong this storage unit has turned out. I hope you like it and will give it a go. Just take your time with it and make sure you have everything prepared & ready. As i said in the video, the only thing i was not happy with was the shelf's. Some of them slightly stick out. That is easily rectified if you just cut your slits a little longer. This will allow the shelf's to sit back further into the box.
Please find all the measurements listed below in metric & Imperial:
CHIPBOARD SPINE MEASURES 6 7/8" X 4"
OR 17.5 CM X 10.2 CM
MARK AT EVERY 1" AND THEN MAKE YOUR SLITS ABOUT 1 3/4" LONG
6 CHIPBOARD SHELVES MEASURING 6 1/4" X 4"
OR 10.2 CM X 15.9 CM
MARK IN THE MIDDLE @ 3 1/8" & MAKE YOUR SLIT ABOUT 2 1/4" LONG
CHIPBOARD X 2 PIECES FOR THE TOP & BOTTOM MEASURING 6 1/2" X 4"
OR 15.9 CM X 16.5 CM
DESIGNER PAPER MEASURES
2 PIECES MEASURING 3 7/8" X 6 3/4"
OR 17.1 CM X 9.8 CM
1 PIECES FOR THE TOP MEASURING 3 7/8" X 6 1/4" (OR 2 PIECES IF YOU WANT TO DO THE BOTTOM ALSO)
OR 9.8 CM X 15.9 CM
IF YOU WANT TO REINFORCE THE INSIDE CORNERS YOU NEED 4 PIECES OF CARD MEASURING 3 7/8" X 2"
SCORE ON THE SHORT SIDE @ 1"

SCORE @ 2.5 CM
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial & remember you can find the video and product links below.

Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by to check out today's tutorial. I am soooo excited about today's project & so proud of it to! I just love the way it turned out & i will be most definitely making more of these. This box is just so cute & the best thing is its super, super strong. I am sure you will love it if you make one or maybe two or three!
I had the idea in my head of those boxes that pop together with fasteners, i think they are made for CD storage but i am not 100% sure. Mine is just for show (the fasteners not the box) & i think it just looks so cool. I made mine to hold my embellishments but you can store whatever you like in yours. Another great thing is this box is sectioned so it has 3 compartments, great to store bits & bobs in it.
My box is made from old cereal boxes that i glued together so my pieces are extra thick. There is no need to go out & buy chipboard. As long as you have some cereal boxes or the backs off 12 x 12 paper pads, your good to go. Make sure you head over to my you tube channel to watch my step by step tutorial. I will put the video link below but i can not do that until the video is 'live'. As i keep saying, please subscribe to my channel and then you will get a notification when my video is published.

I am back with more cool Craft room storage projects! Today we have a really cool Ink pad unit which holds 30 pads & also has a top shelf to store bits & bobs! How cool?? It looks very professional & it really is very simple to make. I am thrilled with how it turned out & so glad i made it. As i said in my Youtube video, this is not my idea. I saw it on Youtube & it was by Graphic45. I have put the link to the video in my Youtube description.
This Ink pad unit is designed to hold Distress Inks but you can also fit other size pads in it. You won't believe how strong & sturdy it is!! It looks fantastic on my desk & if you have room for one i really recommend giving it a go. The most time consuming part was cutting the 40 chipboard 'chips' & colouring them in with a black marker.
Below you can find the measurements in Imperial & metric. You will also find the link to my YouTube video in case you need it. If you subscribe to my channel you will get all the notifications every time i upload anyway.

Large Stamp Storage Box (Holds Q-Connect Storage Pouches)
Hi Crafters :-)
I am back today with a Craft Room/Stash storage project. You may remember the Q-Connect stamp/Die storage pockets i shared with you the other day. I had a few people asking what containers etc i then store the pockets in. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to make my own. This is a really large and sturdy box but i would not recommend filling it with loads of heavy Dies. I have used it to store my stamps. There is no way on this earth it would hold my Dies, it would collapse straightaway haha.
You could store some Dies in it but not loads.
The box is made from Chipboard and i also attached some lovely metal feet to the bottom. Although its not my 'usual' decoration style, i love it and it looks great on the shelf.
2 X CHIPBOARD MEASURING 9 1/2" X 6"
2 X CHIPBOARD MEASURING 6 1/2" X 6"
1 X CHIPBOARD MEASURING 9 1/2" X 6 1/2"
2 X 11 1/2" X 8"
2 X 8 1/2" X 8"
1 X 11 1/2" X 8 1/2"
BLACK CARD TO LINE THE INSIDE
1 X 9 3/8" X 6 3/8"
2 X 9 3/8" X 5 7/8"
2 X 6 3/8" X 5 7/8"
I hope you have enjoyed my project and will make some for your craft room. You could also make it as a special gift box and maybe make a matching lid.
Please check out my tutorial for full instructions. You can find the link at the end of this post.
