Embossing Folder Storage Box

Hello everyone.
This is my second post for today.
If you have not checked out my first post you can HERE.

For a long time I have been looking for a way to store my embossing folders that would be easy to access and be more organized. Yesterday after looking once again at pre-made storage units I decided to just make my own. I look at a few in the Silhouette Store but felt since they would be made out of card stock they would not last very long at all. I wanted one that was strong and would last for years.

I'm a HUGE fan of Kathy from Paper Phenomenon. Using her techniques for making boxes with chipboard and card stock hinges I designed a beautiful and very functional box to store my folders in that is very easy to access and will last for many years.

It took about a hour to design the box and get all the measurements calculated. I wanted 3 sections in the box.

The finished box is 12x12x8.
The 2 side sections are a little over 5 inches wide and the middle 1 1/2 inches wide.

Next was deciding on the card stock I would use to decorate it. 
In my stash I had the graphic 45 The Magic of Oz for several years now. Since I do not scrapbook it was never used. I could not bring my self to cut up the beautiful pages for cards. They needed to be used on a larger projects to keep the images in tact.

I knew I wanted dividers to separate the folders. I used the Print n Cut on the Silhouette to print the tab labels and cut them out.

Last but not least I need to decide on a top. I first thought about a lift off lid and then it hit me I could use my cinch and have the lid open like a book. 

So with further ado here are a few pics. Hope you like it as much as me.

Hope you enjoyed taking a look at my new project.
