Mon Amour – DIY Staples Storage Container


By Linda Roos


I like to use the graphic45 metal decorations and have a lot of them. But I don’t have any great place to store them. So I wanted to make a great storage for them. I also needed the storage to have some place for the small pieces, because I don’t want to lose them when the packaging is open. 

Graphic45 have on their website, under inspiration a whole bunch of project sheets that you can download. I was scrolling to look for inspiration and found a recipe box that I really liked and it had a perfect drawer for my small pieces. So I decided to level up this amazing recipe box and made a nice storage for my metal decorations. 

I changed the measurements to fit my metal decorations. If you want to make one for your decorations or something else, here are the measurements, and look at the video for instructions. 

Measurements chipboard:  
  • backside 4 ½ x 10, one 
  • sides 5 x 8 ½ , two 
  • front 4 ½ x 3, one 
  • front 4 ½ x 1 ½ , one 
  • bottom 4 ½ x 4 15/16, three 
  • bottom 4 ¾ x 4 ⅜ , one 
  • 1 ¼ x 4 ¾ , two 
  • 1 ¼ x 4 ¼ , two 
  • front of the box 4 ½ x 1 ¾ 
Pattern paper inside the box 
  • 6 ¾ x 6 ½ , one. and score at 1 ⅛ at every side.
