Studio G stamp storage

I have been slowly getting back into the swing of things in my little scrap nook and I noticed that I had no place to keep my Studio G stamps that you can get for $1.oo. So I made a box to keep them in. I thought that I would share this box with you all! Enjoy!

I used poster board but you can use heavy wieght cardstock.

Cut your base to 12" x 7 3/4"

Since I used white, I created my own pattern by first Sponging a little color

then by stamping with a background stamp.

After I was done with that I clear embossed some images

for a reverse embossing technique.

When I was finished with that I sponged with Chocolate ink

to make the embossed images stand out.
Flipping the base to have the wrong side up,
score 2 9/16 of an inch at all sides.

Then cut the corners off as shown

then cut along the score line torwards the middle as shown.

Then fold up at the score lines and tape up the corner flaps to the inside.

The base is complete.

The top is created in the same manner with these measurments:

Cardstock~ 9 3/8" x 5 3/8"

Score at 1 1/4" on all sides.

Sorry that this photo doesn't show the lid finished.

To make the dividers for the inside,

I just cut squares at 2 1/16" and used half circles for the tabs.

Thanks for visiting and I would love to hear about your creations!
