The storage unit is made up of individual boxes thar were then attached to each other. I did stagger some so i could see what type of punch they were. On those I sraggered I did attach a piece of chipboard on the back and sides to help it stand up and to add additional support. I also wanted my Martha Stewart score board to be readily available. I just added a bigger box to the back.
Here is how I created the boxes.
First I decided to figure out how big the box needed to be by measuring the tool. I measured the width, the height, and the depth. The height is based on how high up the tool you want the box to go .
I then cut my chipboard accordingly. In the case of this tool I cut my chipboard the following size:
5"x5" - cut two for front and back.
1 1/2" x 5" - cut two for sides
1 1/2"x5" - cut one for bottom
I listed the bottom separately because it is not always the same size as the sides. I lined the pieces up in the following orser.
I then used construction strips to attach them. The strips are 1" wide and scored down the middle. Then add score tape to each half but do not cover score line.
See picture below with sides and bottom attached.
Then connect to form a box then attach bottom.
Please look at the tutorial for the tissue box to get some pointers on using construction strips to construct boxes.
After box is constructed make sure the tool fits in the box before attaching it to other boxes.
I made sure my tool fit in the box both ways.
I then added adhesive to the side I was connecting.
I then added it.
I then added paper and ta da...I am done.
