on you tube) and I came across a couple that featured this idea. Sorry I can't give credit to the people I watched, I didn't take notes as to whom I was watching, but I did want to pass the idea along for those who have not seen this.
OKAY! so everybody recognises these mailer boxes that are free at the post office, and that is what is used. This one will hold 12 x 12 paper.
tricky thing to do when it is already a box shape LOL) Top is 12" tall, front is 6" tall, and the distance from back to diagonal is 4". Well, the insides are not acid free so I lined it with the white papers that are in the pockets of the albums I have bought. ( I always take them out to eliminate some of the bulk)
you know the ones that Michaels will run on sale) and knew I wasn't going to be using these busy pattens. It takes 3 sheets of 12 x 12 to cover the outside (what do ya know that is how many of each color and pattern are in each tablet!) This was my FIRST attempt at this with NO instructions. So I decided to make the measurements slightly smaller, only 11" tall at the back. So I am sitting there thinking this is pretty neat, but there has to be an other, easier way to cut these.
NOTES: I used some Elmer's wet glue that was acid free, but a little on the messy side.
I used an Elmer's tape runner, that I had left over as I don't like them AT ALL. The dry tape idea is good, quick and I figure expensive to do as many as I need.
I also tried a spray adhesive on the small one. It worked pretty good, my fingers were pretty sticky, but for the outside of the box I feel I can get away with it when I am ready to do more..........and I WILL be doing more of these to get my scrapbook paper store vertically. I guess you can just leave the outside as a mailer, but I like the colors, and the patterns....now that they are on a box!
The gal at the post office said you can go on line, to their web site and order a full box of these and they will deliver them right to your door.......Hmmmmm.
So that is your FREE paper organiser. Thanks for coming by, hvae a great week.
