If you don’t already own a scoring board –  go get one asap. For real. Get up. Get out of bed. Run, don’t walk to the nearest craft store and pick one up. They are awesome and make for perfect creases every. single. time. I use my Mini Scoring Board daily.

Now that you know the process – go ahead and make a million or so. You know you want to. These boxes are great for gift packaging, but they are also perfect for organizing all those random supplies that pile up. I don’t know about you, but I have a ton tiny crafting supplies that desperately need a home. Most days I just move them from one spot to the next but now they have a designated place to live and their address is 123 Awesome Street.

  1. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
    and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you
    can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

  2. I love this, such a sweet idea, especially the basket. I love giving out little treats at the office but don’t want to spend a ton of time making the containers. This is just perfect.

  3. I’m loving this series. I am re-doing my studio and you’re right: those little bits and pieces get in the way. Thanks for the clear tutorial!

  4. How cute and easy. I almost love to read your words as much as your darling crafts. I think I will adopt you. 🙂

  5. I believe everything posted made a great deal of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer post title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a title
    that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean damask love | craft is in session is kinda boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write article titles to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  6. Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to
    be on the internet the simplest factor to consider of.

    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time
    as other people consider worries that they just don’t understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , other folks could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  7. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do
    it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find
    out where u got this from. kudos

  8. I was cruising around looking for box templates and this just fit the bill.I re-use boxes this size for my (Little boxes of Joy).If you have time I would appreciate any insight for more Little boxes like this that are super simple to put together.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Love your blog
