I make custom boxes all the time. I didn’t even think to talk about them during my craft room tour. When my friend Barbara asked where I got the drawer organizers I realized I should make a video. These boxes are so quick, I’ll make them when I’m making lots of the same cards to hold elements until I’m ready for them. The same style boxes can be made to hold treats or whatever. You can make a top for the boxes using the exact same pattern, just allow an extra 1/16″ for the center section.

I filled my wood crate with birthday candles, candy, and red balloons, but a gift card might fit too. To be honest, I have several little wood crates on my desk holding my paper sampler, little sticky notes, and other odds and ends. I think they’re very cute! They just take a half sheet of card stock.

This is a quick gift that would look lovely on your Easter table or just a little treat gift. I used the That’s the Tag bundle. That’s the Tag has greetings for weddings, Mother’s Day, new babies, birthday, congratulations, thinking of you, and thanks. But I wanted it for Easter, so I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. That set has a greeting for just about everything!

This box is so beautiful! And did you notice the Window Box Thinlits coordinates with the Sending Love Designer Series Paper® stack? In the video I shared a couple of tricks for working with the Thinlits. For instance, I put a piece of Washi Tape to mark where to place the trapezoid pieces so they align properly.

This box is so very beautiful! The Cable Knit folder gives such an impressive texture. Of course, you could expand the gift card to be a full greeting card and putting the embellishment from the box onto the card.

The directions and video show how to make envelopes large enough for the 2 3/4″ cards and small enough for the 3″ box.

6-x-6-dsp-storage-solution-2

I finally found a perfect storage solution for my 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks! I made a custom box with 3 pieces of the thin cardboard that comes with our 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. It fits up to 6 stacks plus the masks (AKA stencils).

Here are the detailed directions

You can use this box without the sturdy reclosable bags, but I think you will “need” them as much as I did! Get the bags here.

In addition to the cardboard, you will need 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper of your choice, 36″ of ribbon, a strong adhesive (Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape), Multipurpose Liquid Glue, a Bone Folder, and a Trimmer.
