Divided Stacking Box Tray


I am so excited about this cut file!  This is my new Divided Stacking Box Tray and it is fabulous for desk storage or to give as a gift!  It has a base box that has a long storage box inside and comes with a divider that can be placed to create two compartments then there is a top tray (with handles) that sits on top.  This tray can be used as it is or you can cut the two additional boxes that sit inside it.  There is also a divider that comes in the file to split these boxes into two sections!  The image shows the bottom tray with divider and the top tray with two boxes and one divider and what they look like together.

This file works with both the 12x12 and 8-1/2x12 mats.
Here is the tutorial:
 1.  Starting with the large box, fold on all the score lines then place adhesive on the four tabs.
 2.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides to form a rectangle.
 3.  Next grab your large tray piece (this will fit inside the box just created).  Fold on all the score lines then place adhesive on the four tabs as shown.
 4.  Adhere the tabs to the outside of the box sides so the tabs will not show on our finished box.
 5.  Your large tray piece should look like this now.
 6.  Grab the handle tray piece and fold on all the score marks.  Place adhesive on the four tabs as shown.
 7.  Adhere the tabs inside the tray area.  Your handle tray should look like this now.
 8.  Next grab your smaller boxes.  Fold on all the score marks and place adhesive on the tabs as shown. 
 9.  Adhere the tabs to the outside of the box sides so the tabs will not show on our finished box.
10.  Your boxes should look like this now.
11. For the divider pieces, fold so they have a peak in the middle as shown.
12. Place adhesive in the peak as shown in the image.
13. Adhere the peak together then place adhesive on the bottom of the divider piece.
14. Place the divider inside the box.
15. This image shows the divider in the large tray.

16.  You should now have the main box, the large bottom tray, the handle tray, and two smaller boxes.
17.  Place the large bottom tray at the bottom of your main box.  You can use adhesive around the sides if you would like.
18.  Next place your divided box in the handle tray.
19.  Then place your remaining small box beside it.  They fit tightly so they will hold each other in place.
20.  Your handle tray should look like this now.
21.  I place glue dots around the edges of my compartments for the boxes I create where I want the pieces to stay.  It helps keep the edges looking nice.
22.  Place the handle tray on top of the box!
23.  The bottom tray with divider in will hold a standard post-it note pad, square distress ink pad, or other objects similar in size.  If you do not use the divider you can place long objects in this tray.
24.  For the handle tray, if you do not use the boxes/dividers it can hold markers and pens or other long objects.
25.  The handle tray with dividers can hold a variety of objects/embellishments.  I have five different sized stamps shown.


This box is so much fun and I love that the handle part easily removes to reveal more storage!  You can find this box HERE!


Here is a peek at what else you will find in my Silhouette store this week:

What kind of paper did you use? I'm trying to figure out what weight of card stock might be best.
Thanks!
