Project

Collection in a Box

Tiny treasures like stickers, buttons, or stamps are easier to enjoy and store when they're glued to folded pages.

Materials

  • Paper or card stock
  • Small box with lid
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Measure and mark a long strip of paper or card stock whose short side matches the long side of a small box.

  2. Step 2

    Accordion-fold the strip, and glue the first page to the inside of the box's lid and the last page to the inside of the box's bottom.

    Try using double sided paper. I used double sided paper for my granddaughter and there is twice as much space and especially when you are starting with a 6 year old! barb1248

    My neice is leaving for college next week and needs a place for all her college treasures. I took the idea, purchased a 13 x 13 decorative box (to match her college colors) and used 12 x 12 cardstock, taping the pages together with decorative tape. I attached only the first page to the box top, leaving the last page unglued to add more cardstock if needed. I started with 2 cardstock pads, about 96 sheets. I used Mod Podge to attach the cardstock to the lid. Works great. barb1248
