DIY Storage for your Die Cutting Plates

Hello friends, today I’m sharing this handy desk storage to hold my die cutting plates.

DIY Storage for your Die Cutting Plates

These are always lying around and fall down the back of my unit so I decided to make this.

This will hold the 6″ x 9″ cutting plates and smaller but it will also hold some stamping platforms, scoreboards, and other things.

I made 2, one for me and one for my mum.

TO MAKE THESE I USED

Little Miricle papers by Dress My Craft available here.

Hydrangea Lawns papers by Dress My Craft available here.

The Chipboard I use is 2mm and from Every Crafts A Pound here I get the multi-pack.

THE MEASUREMENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS ARE…

2 pieces of 2.1/2 x 4″ chipboard for the sides.

2 pieces of 9.1/2 x 4″ chipboard for the front and back.

1 piece of 3.1/2 x 10.1/2 chipboard for the base.

2 pieces of 4.1/2 x 6″ pattern paper to cover the sides.

2 pieces of 9.1/2 x 6″ pattern paper to cover the front and back.

1 piece of  12″ x 5.1/2 pattern paper to cover the base.

2 pieces of 2.3/8 x 3.3/4 coloured paper to cover inside small sides

2 pieces of 3.3/4 x 9.3/8 coloured paper to cover the inside of the front and back.

1 piece of 2.1/4 x 9.1/4 paper to cover the base of the box.

The big bow not only looks pretty but can also add support for the sides.

  1. This is a beautiful box to hold your plates in! I love the kitty paper too!!! Excellent tip on keeping the blades that do not cut paper any longer. For some reason I have kept them, so now I know exactly what to do with them, cut chipboard!! I shall be making at least 1 of these boxes. TYFS Sam
