Storage Cube

Good Morning How is everyone this Monday. Today I am sharing my Storage Cube It is great for when you are short of space on your shelves instead of having everything stacked on top of each other and things falling of the shelf every  time you grab something.
Mine is sat next to The Storage holder which I keep some of my favourite paints in
I have decorated all of them with Graphic 45 Papers Large selection on the website

Other Products -  Kraft Card,  Distress Inks, Rusty Hinge ,  Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw, Walnut Stain, Dove Blender Pen, Tacky Glue, Red Liner Tape

Begin with Finding the 7” x 21” pocket and flip fold album Cut 2 of your Patterned 12 x 12 paper down to  12 x 6.87  Die cut The Leafy Delicate Border Basics onto the small section of your Flip Fold
Cut a 2“ Strip off your Patterned paper that we just trimmed Use the Classic Border Basics to the edge of this and die cut Edge the card and paper with Memento Rich Cocoa Dye ink and glue this into place

Cover the rest of the panel with paper from the on we have already trimmed down to size inking all the edges on both the card and paper  use red Liner tape to stick down 2 of the folds to make pockets
On the Large end panel both sides you need to Die cut the edge of the paper with Delicate Border Basics If you don’t own a fine glue tip use the back of your hand to apply the glue to the delicate die cuts

Cut out 2 Large Circles (Largest Scalloped Die) from Kraft Card and 2 Small Circles ( the Largest of the Dies) out off patterned paper Ink the edges and adhere the patterned paper to the Kraft Card using tacky Glue

Adhere the Circles to the Front of your card and the inside bottom pocket, Die cut lots of the Stamps that come with this collection and Colour these with your Blender Pen and Distress inks
Insert these into the pockets

When your Pockets are full your card would look something like this ready for a child to pull out and play with (Build a Scene) You can the decorate the front of your card with your remaining stamped and Diecut Images

There are so many options for this design card how about leaving the stamps blank so children can colour them in themselves you could also make a play mat out of one of the 12x12 sheets of paper

Have a great weekend
