A Trio of Boxes and a Storage Solution


A few weeks ago SVG Cuts shared these wonderful One-Piece Boxes on Facebook, and I've finally had a chance to create with them.  Not having  a lot of 12 x 12 pattern paper on hand, I loved the fact that these are also sized for 12 x 6 Mats.  On the boxes I created I used Bo Bunny pattern paper.  The picture above is a close up of the Nested 3D Flower (Silhouette file)  that was cut from card stock using the Silhouette Cameo.  As with all flowers that I've created in the past with dies, I simply scrunched the petals between my thumb and index finger to give them some form, then stacked them on top of each other and inserted a Brad.  To attach to the Box, rather than poking holes, I used Basic Grey Magnetic Snaps.  To embellish I added some Dyed Seam Binding and a tag using a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Simple Things stamp set.

Here's a picture of the Tall Box along with Boxes 3 and 4 from the One-Piece Box Collection


For the bottom box (#3), I added the Pink card stock trim and a flower blossom using Silhouette's Nesting Flower 4 cut from scraps of the Bo Bunny Paper.  Again, with this flower I used a Basic Grey Magnetic Snap to attach the flower to the box.  I tied both box 3 and 4 together with some dyed Seam Binding, then embellished the top box (#4), with a Butterfly die cut from scraps of the Bo Bunny paper using the ODBD Grunge Butterfly Die, and added some Zva Creative Crystal Flourishes.

Now onto my studio reorganization...I'm working on cleaning and purging some things from my studio.  Last month I purchased the new Tim Holtz Cargo and Trinket Storage Cases, I love these for organizing my stuff!

In the Trinket Case, I've put the Maya Road Trinket Pins in the top compartments.  In the boxes under that I have some Tim Holtz Accoutrement Buttons,  Alterable Wood Buttons, and miscellaneous embellishments from Tim Holtz and May Road.  In the very bottom I've stored more of the bulkier Idea-ology Findings.

If you missed my post on the Cargo Case, here's the photo of my supplies.  As Tim posted last week, there are a ton configurations for storing your supplies using both of these boxes.

Thanks for stopping by!

You are so lucky to get the storage and trinket cargo boxes. I was hoping for the cargo for Christmas, because I love the amount of distress inks that it holds. I didn't get it, but I haven't given up hope.

Your Trio of Boxes are Beautiful. I also love what you have done with Tim's Trinket Box and am amazed at all the Beautiful contents you have to put into it. The Cargo Box looks very Handy. I just wonder if anyone knows just how many Distress Ink Pads it will actually Hold. Awesome Creativity. TFS........
