Floral Shoppe - Tool Stand Tutorial

Alexandra Morein


“I like to add new handmade items to the crafty studio and today I would like to share with you a tool stand, which was created from scratch out of medium weight chipboard and embellished with the beautiful paper from the Floral Shoppe line.


60-Second Tool Caddy Tutorial Video




The stand measures 5” (W) X .5 “ (L) X 6.5” (H) and seemingly simple, looks great and is handy for lots of stuff that you can put in it.







If you like this project, you can follow along a video tutorial that I prepared and get a stand done for yourself.
