I subscribe to Studio Calico's Project Life® kits, so each month a beautifully curated box of craft supplies arrives at my doorstep. Of course, the box contents are crazy amazing, but the box makes my heart go pitter patter all by itself!
It's extremely well made, sturdy, and has a strong magnetic closure. It's just too perfect to throw away! I've re-purposed them in a variety of ways. I've turned them into travel kits, greeting card gift sets, first aid kits, recipe boxes, paper doll sets & more.
But today, I wanted to show you how perfect they are for organizing all those little bits & baubles that you collect. I'll share a free cut file that you can download to create dividers for the inside of the box. I've used this box to organize some of my smaller kit supplies, but I think it would make a great jewelery box too.
This is what a Project Life® box looks like.
I've covered it with patterned paper in the past, but I decided to spray paint it this time & I loved the results! (I prefer Valspar's flat paint/primer in one.)
Now you've got a blank slate to work with & you can decorate the box or leave it as is.
I covered my box with some of my favorite paper of all time. (Studio Calico's Color Theory pack.) It comes with the little faux paper strips already printed on the paper, making a perfect spot to add my text.
I used another sheet of Color Theory paper along with my Silhouette to create the dividers for the inside of the box. (You can download the files here.)
The file will automatically cut your score lines, so you'll just need to make mountain & valley folds to create each section. Please let me know if you have any trouble figuring out how it goes together.
... and there you have it!
I hope you enjoy creating your own bits & baubles box! Enjoy!
