Greeting Card Storage Box

Greeting Card Storage Box

This decorated greeting card box from Uchida of America is useful and attractive.

Materials:

  • Large Ori Yoki box
  • 6- 4.5 X 6 chipboard dividers
  • 6- 4.5 X 6 pieces of patterned paper
  • 6- Scalloped squares, punched from cardstock
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Cover 4.5 x 6 chipboard dividers with matching size colored/patterned paper. Round edges if desired. Ink edges if desired.
     
  2. Fold scalloped punch shapes in half evenly, to form an index tab.
     
  3. Label with a category title; birthday, thank you, congratulations, get well, baby/wedding, note cards.
     
  4. Staple one tab on top of each divider, staggering the placement like the tabs on file folders.
     
  5. Decorate the top/sides of box with words associated with greeting cards; Happy Birthday, Here’s to You, Congratulations, Thanks a Bunch, It’s Your Day, etc. Embellish further with Opaque Stix, adding flourishes, doodles, hearts and more. Use tacky glue to add plastic gems, if desired.
     
  6. Fill with pretty cards made using Marvy’s scalloped punches! Check out the gallery at Uchida.com for ideas. This box makes a great gift! Fill with cards, envelopes, stamps and an address book. Make a box just for the holidays; store wish lists, sizes, pictures, family newsletters, cards, labels and stamps. Everything, all in one place! Use Ori Yoki to make a recipe box! Instead of labeling each divider with occasions, label them ‘appetizers’, ‘soups and stews’, ‘main dishes’, ‘desserts’, ‘side dishes’ and ‘Family Recipes’.
