With all the cards I make I am always looking for a way to organize them. I have seen these cute organizers on several sites and thought I would try my hand at making one.
Here are a list of supplies you will need:
A box approx. size 7x7x6
Letters ( I used the glitter chipboard from Brenda Walton)
Adhesive ( I used my ATG less mess but you can use modge podge)
Embellishments of your choice
Step 1. cut off or fold down all flaps except the front flap( I found after folding that cutting them off gave a less bulky look)
Step 2. If you decided to fold down your flaps you may want to paint the top rim of your flaps so you will have a more finished look when you add you pattern paper. Skip this if you are going to finish off your box with ribbon like I did.( Remember don't do anything to the front flap yet).
Step 3. You will notice that I have folded down the front of my box. I first cut off the top portion 3 1/2 inches and then folded the bottom portion down 2 inches. Step 4. You are now ready to decorate just measure and cut your pattern paper to fit the sides ,back and front of your box. I added ribbon to all of my top edges for a more decorative and finished look. I also added decorative elements to the sides you can also line the inside for a more polished look.
Step 5. Don't forget your inserts
