Hello my name is Kathy and I'm a Doodle-Pop Hoarder.  So much so that I had to create a storage solution.  My storage box was posted on the Doodlebug Facebook Page recently and I was surprised at the response!  So many of you asked, so I got my act together and put together a tutorial.  This organizer holds approximately 120 Doodle-Pops, or Doodlebug Sprinkles packs.

For my tutorial I'm showing how to make one without a cutting machine.  Originally I created an SVG file to make one.  It is available on my blog, along with a Silhouette version here.  The cut file versions are assembled in the same general manner.
Start by cutting the pieces.
From a good heavyweight cardstock cut the following (I used 80 lb. cover weight cardstock)
Cut 3    7 3/8 " x 11 ½ "
Cut 1     8 ¾ " x 7"
Cut 2     8 ¾" x 2 ¼ "
Cut 2     7" x 2 ¼ "
From Patterned Paper
Cut 2     6 ¾ “ x 2"
Cut 2     8 ½” x 2”
I recommend you put this together using a liquid glue.  I use Scotch Quick Dry, it works well and holds up when I over-stuff it with Doodle-Pops.

Start with the three 7 3/8 “ x 11 ½” pieces. Score each piece as shown above. After scoring cut where the solid lines are.
1)  I also cut a a bit off each of the tabs, starting from about 1/4" down the long side side,  and cutting up to the fold line.  This helps make the sides of the finished box more smooth and even.
2) This is what it looks like with all the fold/cut lines
3) Fold up the short ends and fold in the tabs.  Add glue to the tabs and adhere to the long side of the box.
4) Repeat with the other tabs/side until a box is formed.  Do this for the other two scored pieces, and let dry.
5) Glue the 3 boxes together as shown, make sure they are all aligned.  Let dry.
6)  Glue the 8 ¾ " x 7" piece to the bottom of the 3 boxes.
7)  Glue the 8 ¾" x 2 ¼ " pieces to the long sides, covering the seams.
8)  Glue the 7" x 2 ¼ " pieces to the shorter sides.  It gives the sides a little more strength.  Lastly, glue on the decorative panels (the patterned paper strips.)

As part of the Silhouette and SVG files, I've also included the divider tabs and labels (which are print & cut).  For folks who do not have a cutting machine, I've created a PDF you can use to print on cardstock and hand cut.  It's available here on my blog.
One last note... this organizer also works perfectly for all of the Doodlebug Sprinkles!  Discovered this by accident... now I need to make more!

How would you like to get some Doodle Pops of your own?  When sorting through mine for this post, I realized I had a LOT of duplicates.  I'm giving away sets of 5 random Doodle Pops to 9 of my Instagram followers.   Head over my Instagram Account to enter to win!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
