Berry Boxes

click photos to enlarge


If you have stopped by before, you know that I absolutely LOVE hoarding collecting boxes and especially making them. I came across the cutest berry boxes and couldn't wait to make them last night. Before I show you my creations, I want to first give credit to Claire, the author of the blog, FellowFellow.  Her cute boxes, fabulous photos and fact sheets, in both inches and metric, can be found at the link below:


I used two-sided card stock paper from a K&Company pad. These are so easy to make (Claire has done all the measurements for you) and very sturdy. 


I used my Martha Stewart score board since it has 1/8-inch increments. So little materials and tools are needed!


I made all the top strips 1" wide and they stayed on better. I also put a bit of glue under the edge on the side opposite where it is stapled.


These particular boxes are going in the fulfillment drawer to hold the items I use for shipping my Etsy orders. I have a few more to make plus I am attempting one twice the size of the large one .. for ribbons. I cannot wait to make some in bright summer colors, like Claire made, for the kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by!
Molly

P.S.  Made some more for my placing in my craft drawers.
