Storage Box Organization for Spring

My craft room is always in need of improved storage and organization.  When I saw these bright and colorful prints from Doodlebug's new Flower Box collection, I knew they would make perfect storage boxes.  


I used this 3D box file  from Silhouette to die cut my boxes.  I increased the size of the boxes just a bit so they would accommodate my pearl and jewel packs.  Because I increased the size of the boxes, each box required two 12"x12" pieces of paper.  I used the coordinating B sides for the corners and label holder.  Did you notice how I attached each label holder with the appropriate embellishment?  


Each box measures approximately 4.5"x5.5"x3.25"--small enough to be cute, but big enough to be functional.  I totally plan on making more of these for my craft room.


Each box has coordinating woodgrain corners.  I LOVE the multi-colored woodgrain prints in Doodlebug's Flower Box collection.    There's a pink woodgrain print, too.

What would you make storage boxes for?

  34. Storage boxes are a great way to free up space in your file cabinets and archive documents you don’t need to consult every day, but can’t throw away.
