Some of the best projects around in paper crafting land are on the web site, SplitCoastStampers.com. Unfortunately for me, it takes lots of paper to print out the instructions so that I can follow them to make my projects. Believe me, the last thing I need to add to the Craft Room is more paper!
So, once again, I have adapted a project from SplitCoastStampers.com and created a one-page tutorial that makes it easier for me to tack up on the wall and reference while I’m making my project. It’s here on my blog for you to share free of any charge.
Some adjustments that I made to the overall design concept was to lay out the Designer Series Paper pieces on one sheet of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Yes, that’s all you need for the basic box! I also adjusted the size of the card stock inserts to make it easier to cut them from a 12″ square piece of card stock. Why make them 3-7/8″ when 4″ will do just fine, thank you very much! So my inserts are 4″ x 5-1/2″ instead of 3-7/8″ x 5-1/2″.
I also tried to make it clearer how the accordion folded side pieces should be adhered to the front and back of the box. It does make a difference which way you face those little folds.
Finally, all my materials are Stampin’ Up! materials only! For the featured project, I used Rich Razzleberry Patterns Paper from the Brights Collection of Patterns paper in the 2010-2011 Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog. I used the Round Tab Punch to make the labels for my dividers, and stamped them with stamps from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.
Here’s the inside of the box that I made. Have fun making the project yourself – and let me know if you have any questions!
