Storage is something that I always struggle with and am always looking for new and better ideas. Recently, I decided that I needed a more reasonable way to store my Embossing folders, plates, and cutting related things. I had been storing them in these awesome little photo thingys that I had altered. However, creating the inserts for the folder to hold my embossing things was very time consuming and cumbersome. And I do not have time for either of those words in the same sentence right now. When I decided it was time for a storage change, it was really late at night, like super late, like 2 a.m. late. Despite that, I came up with a super awesome, fast and easy way to store all my stuff. I made a box using chipboard, my Bind-It-All, paper, and Ribbon. And this is the finished product:
I took 3 pieces of 12x12 chipboard and cut them into 6x12 lengths, and glued two together. I did that for each side that I needed. Next, I adhered the paper to one side. I then punched centered holes into all of the pieces on three sides. One of the large pieces I punched centered holes on all 4 sides, this is the piece that goes on the bottom. Last, I weaved ribbon through the holes in a criss cross manner to bind them together. Start to finish this took me about 3 hours (I am a slow worker).
