Greeting Card Storage File box

I saw these little wood boxes at Michaels the other day and I thought that it would be cute to use as a file box for greeting cards.  Well I didn't buy it. But then for the next few days I kept thinking about the simple little box.  Well a couple days later I'm back at Michaels (imagine that). Everything I bought was on sale and I needed something to use my coupon on. So I went and grabbed the little box for $5.99 minus 40%. This is what I did with it.

I painted the box with a plain white paint. Made some tabbed dividers. Made a monthly birthday list and added cards.
I used the Simply Sweet Cartridge for the tabs. I used some itty bitty lit Studio g Alphabet stamps to label each tab. Then did some basic doodling.
For the cards I used a lightweight chipboard and covered it with pattern paper. I could've decorated them a little more but wanted to keep it simple. Besides they won't really be seen, other than the tabs.
The Birthday list I made with a plain sheet of paper. I drew Lines and stamped each month on it.


  1. I LOVE these boxes and have many of them in my craft room. When you paint them and alter them a little bit they are so cute. I LOVE what you did with yours. Great idea. Happy New Year.
