Cuttlebug storage for folders and dies

Okay, so it's not decorated yet - but what do you think? I'm so proud of it! So happy I could pee myself! (j/k LOL - but I am happy!) I spent the entire afternoon working on it. I planned it out and even made a basic model of the box in paper first so I wouldn't mess it up. Someone posted on the Cricut Cuttlebug board that they got a $6 box at Walmart (office supplies) to hold their folders. First, I thought well that's way more than I'm willing to spend on a cardboard box. LOL Then I thought, hmmm.... I could make one myself and divide it for the different sized dies and folders. So today I finally sat down and did it, I had some extra thick chipboard that was perfect for this project. Now, I just have to decide how I want to cover and decorate my box! I made the middle divider permanent, but the other dividers come out in case I need to reconfigure it later on.

Looks great! Mine are all still in the individual packages since I couldn't find a way to make anything work with all of the different sized folders I have.

Where did you get the box itself that you used?

Thanks for sharing!
