Hi everyone! This week has been full of all sorts of newness here at SP and today is something else new! Today is 3D Thursday here at SP!
This is something I have kind of been doing on and off over the past few months as part of my MarkerPop duties. Being the MarkerPop Design Team Coordinator, I planned the schedule over there and 3D Thursday is something I always wanted to do so I put it into our schedule. Well MarkerPop is still doing 3D Thursday and I also want to make 3D items a regular part of the SP schedule so Thursdays are now 3D Thursdays!! YAY!
I have been wanting to come up with a way to organize my cards into categories so I came up with this little card organizer box.
I make A LOT of cards so I will need a lot of these containers. I decided to label the side of my box with the category name so that each category of cards would have it’s own box.
If you wanted to, you could create divider tabs to go inside the box so that you could put more than one category into each box.
I made a video tutorial to go along with this project:
The box itself was made out of Pink Pirouette 12×12 cardstock from Stampin’ UP. The scoring guide is at the end of this post so you know where the score marks and cuts go.
I decorated each side of the organizer with patterned paper from the new Love Story collection from Echo Park. This collection was included in the SP Monthly Kit for December.
For the label tag, I used some pink cardstock. I stamped a big “love” sentiment from the I Love Love stamp set so that it was a tone on tone effect. Then I stamped “Love Cards” using the alphas from the Tiny Build a Banner stamp set. Around the sentiment, I stamped a couple of little hearts, also from the Tiny Build a Banner stamp set.
Then I matted the label onto some red cardstock & attached it to the side of my card organizer. I decided that I would place my card organizers on my shelf sideways so I wanted the label to be on the side rather than the front of the organizer. It kind of reminds me of a magazine organizer.
At the top of the label, I added a decorate brad from the Merry & Bright collection from Carta Bella.
Here are some more photos of the card organizer:
Here is the scoring guide. If you would like an easy to print version, I created a free PDF printable that is available in the SP Store now (click here!).
