New Storage Boxes

Six Drawer Storage Unit

With this six drawer storage unit you are able to make the project shown or you can cut just half of the file and make a three drawer unit!   The six drawer unit is approximately 9" x 9" x 1-1/2" with each drawer being 4-1/2" x 3".  If you were to make just the 3 drawer unit, it would be approximately 4-1/2" x 9" x 1-1/2", drawer sizes remain the same.  This project would be great for organizing your scrapbook supplies, items around your house, makeup, first aid, giving as a gift full of different candies or money, even as a teacher gift...it'd be perfect for their desks!  You can find the tutorial here: https://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2017/07/new-storage-boxes.html

1.  Cut out the box and fold on all the score lines.  Place adhesive on the tab.
2.  Adhere the tab to the other side of the box.
3.  Fold the bottom of the box up.
4.  Tuck the tab in the slot to close the box.
5.  Repeat this for all boxes and adhere the coordinating mats in place.
6.  Next cut the large tray and fold on the score lines.  Place adhesive on the 4 tabs.
7.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides to form the shape.
8.  Insert the boxes into the tray.
9.  Repeat for the second set if making six drawers.
10. Place adhesive on one of the drawer set tops (long side).
11. Adhere the two trays on top of each other.
12. Cut the large mat for the back of the trays.  This helps with stability.
13. Adhere the mats on the sides of the trays.  Note: If you want to use the 3 Drawer Unit and have the side mats for the outer box, simply cut the longest ones in half for the shorter sides of the 3 drawers.
14.  Your box should look similar to this now!


9 Compartment Storage Unit, 2 Ways

This 9 Compartment Storage Unit can be used in the two ways shown making it perfect for storing many different items!  The finished unit is approximately 4-1/2" x 9" x 2-1/2" with each drawer around 2-1/2" x 3" x 1-1/2".  

These boxes assemble like the boxes above.  Once you have the tray and boxes together, simply adhere them to the bottom box tray and to the boxes beside them so they are all secure and not removable.  This makes the unit stronger.  As with all of my 3D items, I suggest using at least an 80# Card Stock Weight for the base/drawers to give it sturdiness.

6 Compartment Storage Unit

This  Compartment Storage Unit is perfect for storing many different items! The file comes with the individual boxes (each around 2-1/2" x 3" x 1-1/2), the large tray, and the divider tabs.  The finished unit is approximately 6-1/4" x 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" (3" with tabs in place). You can find the tutorial here: https://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2017/07/new-storage-boxes.html

6 Compartment Storage Unit
This Compartment Storage Unit is perfect for storing many different items! The file comes with the two box set (each around 6" x 2-3/4" x 1-1/2") and the large tray. The finished unit is approximately 6" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/2".  This storage unit follows the tutorial below for the box creation.  Then once you have the three boxes cut, you adhere them together and then assemble the large tray by adhering the four tabs to the box sides then adhere the storage unit into the tray.  https://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2017/08/new-storage-boxes.html
 
Customized Desk Storage Unit
This Customized Desk Storage Unit is perfect for storing many different items, even pencils/markers! The file comes with the three box sets and coordinating mats.  You can customize your storage unit by cutting multiples of the same file, or continue adding multiple files and adhering them together to design your own to fit your needs!  As shown, the finished unit is approximately 10" x 7-1/2" x 1-1/4".  Once you have the three boxes cut, you adhere them together.  There is not a limit on how many you can attach!  You can find the box tutorial here: https://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2017/08/new-storage-boxes.html

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out the box and fold on the score lines.  Place adhesive on the long side tab, the three bottom tabs, and the two wings by each shelf piece.  In the photo, there are white adhesive on these pieces.
2.  Adhere the side tab to the box side to form its shape.
3.  Adhere the bottom tabs by folding the two tabs in then closing the box and adhering it in place.  Then adhere the shelf wings to the box.  Your box should look similar to this now.
4.  Adhere the coordinating mats in place.  Make sure to adhere the folded mat inside the shelf, this provides extra support so the shelf can hold weighted items.

For all my 3D projects, I like to use an 80# card stock weight and strong adhesive.
