I posted a few days ago about the Imagine the Impossibility's Challenge I'm joining in on I just might have bitten of more then I can chew with this project , My New goal is too have everything cleared up and then next month I will go through and paint everything too match .
Onto How to make a Scrapbook Paper File ( D.I.Y)
So how do you store your scrapbook paper ? Me oh you know the Best way you can in a pile all mixed up with different sizes in a box . I knew I would have to figure something better out at some point well guess what that point is NOW ... So after looking in circles for hours I remembered that a few weeks ago the mail man left us a "Welcome" to the neighborhood package that had 10 large flat rate boxes and a bunch of smaller sizes about 25 boxes total ... Funny part is we have lived here for a year!
They are Perfect Size for scrapbook paper ( I DON'T RECOMMEND GOING TO THE POST OFFICE AND TAKING THESE BOXES FOR A DIY PROJECT ) I really shouldn't have used them for this but once the thought popped in my head I had to try it , I'm WEAK like that . You could also use the LARGE cereal boxes to Do this or check your local stores and see if they have any boxes you can have .
So I closed them up on both sides and cut them in half to end up with 10 paper slots . I got out the Glue Gun and Glued 5 of them together which gave me 2 stacks .
Too make it a little Prettier I Wrapped it in Fabric I put paper around the box first to smooth it out a bit
I painted the inside of them White since putting fabric on the inside was just a pain.
I will be posted More of the ways I'm making this basement work for my craft supplies.
( Sorry for the BAD pictures I was using My No Good point and shoot I always forget to have my batteries charged )
Stay tuned to see where I put it in my NEW craft office
