Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Storage

Finally done! I've had covering this box on my list of things to do for months -- at least. I decided to use my favorite paper so that I can always look at it. This is a repurposed recipe box that I've had since the very early days of marriage when I thought I might actually use recipes. If I remember correctly, the box was free but I had a subscription to get the recipe cards in the mail periodically. It didn't last long...
Anyway, this nice box was lonely and it ended up in The Card Castle.



I found the paper clips at Target in the Dollar Spot. Although I loved the design on them, it wouldn't help with my labeling and I didn't want to just put a label over the pretty print. I removed the domed stickers with the print and replaced it with the card stock indexes printed on the computer. I had some clear domed stickers in my stash so I used them on some of them.
I guess I need to make a few more labels because Provo Craft just released new folders that are dying to come and live in this box....

Jackie - This is fabulous! What a creative use of something that most of us would have pitched when we discovered that recipes involved work.

Jacki - so lovely and puts my shoe box to shame! Can't wait to see more great cuttlebug cards posted as no doubt you'll be making them more often with such great storage, along with those lovely clips that just cry out to be touched and admired!

What a great idea. I love those domed paper clips. My EF are in a plastic tray from the dollar store but when I want the perfect one I have to search through the bunch to find. Must try your system.
