This is what I've stored my ring findings and materials in -- forever.
I MADE A TOTAL OF 8 BOXES - 3 LAYERS
4 ... 5 x 3.5" (size of paper before scoring = 7 x 5.5")
2 ... 4 x 6.5" (size of paper before scoring = 6 x 8.5")
2 ... 7 x 6.5" (size of paper before scoring = 9 x 7.5")
Score 1" on all four sides and fold.
Make two 1" cuts on both ends & fold in the 1" square tabs.
I used a piece of tape on each corner. Tabs can be on the inside, outside -- however you want them.
I went back and added packaging tape to the ends to make the boxes more sturdy.
DIVIDERS FOR THE LARGER BOXES
Using scraps, I trimmed the length to the same as the width of the box and made a score down the center. My box sides are 1" so I scored 7/8" on both sides of the center score line and made a valley fold. I added glue and tape runner as shown.
After it was glued in the box, I added a piece of packaging tape on both sides to secure it better.
This is the middle layer. I didn't take a pic of the bottom layer (four boxes-see pic above). It only contains notes, some business cards and info where I buy my findings.
This is the top layer and there is room for my ring mandrel.
Better organized and in a larger container with room to grow.
Thanks for stopping by!
