'Good Friday' morning crafty friends

I'd like to show you what I've made using scrap pieces of cardboard.  I've mentioned before I do keep a lot of packing from my orders (if not all!) and once you've added a layer of card or just your pretty paper it does strengthen the item

I used the main part of the packaging below 

then I removed all the flaps 

cut the cardboard to the required size

I use Tyvek to strengthen the sides

I order a pack of A4 and cut it into strips for each project.  This is a fabulous addition to your stash if you make mini albums, journals etc.  I've mentioned on my videos that you can't tear this material

the Tyvek is adhered with ScorPal tape.  If you don't have that used red line tape

I find it much easier to add papers to the inside when it is flat

the finished item 

I also distressed the sides 

the box will store my 4" square cardstock

The 'Friday Freebie' is

  3. Lovely storage box June. I also like doing things like that. My internet is awful these days. Keeps coming and going. Can’t watch videos as they just won’t start. Just at a time ,when you want to look at these things. Take care and enjoy the weekend.

  5. This is a great idea! Thanks.
    I wish you Happy and Healthy Easter!

  6. What a brilliant project June, a great idea for storing your square cardstock. xx

  7. Wow, I would never have guess that you started out with cardboard packaging. This box is gorgeous and elegant, and works so perfectly to hold those card stock squares. Something like this would look beautiful on my dresser top as well.

  8. Your tutorial makes this project look simple enough, and it is so beautiful. the inked edges and metal findings really give a lovely finish, and it's so useful too. I never thought to use Tyvek on the edges, but I can see how it would add a lot of strength to the structure. I love that you were able to build this to your specifications exactly, which make it so useful.

  9. What a lovely project June - just right to be doing in the current 'climate' and so useful!!
    Thank you for providing all the measurements!

  10. This is a great project June, that Tyvek is wonderful stuff : )

  11. What a brilliant tutorial June. Love the idea and am scrabbling through my cupboards to find a suitable box!!!
