Our home contains endless odds and ends. Craft bits and pieces: Rainbow loom bands, Perler beads, sequins, googly eyes, rock collections, barrettes.

The solution: Boxes! Made out of sturdy cardstock, with a lid to keep things in place. Of course, such boxes are also perfect for small gifts!

Supplies

  • Paper cutting blade such as an X-acto Knife (I use blade #11)
  • Liquid Glue (I used this glue pen)
  • Scoring tool
  • Printer
  • Ruler and cutting mat

Using a scoring tool, score along the Dotted lines.

Fold the cardstock so that sharp creases form along all the dotted lines.

Repeat the process for as many lids and bottoms as you need. The lids will fit snuggly atop the boxes. The boxes are ready for your odds, ends and treasures! It would hold a Mother’s Day gift nicely :)
