I took a child's sized shoe box (perfectly sized to contain embossing folders) and decorated it with assistance from my four year old, Bekah. We added some colorful papers and ribbon, then a decorative flower embellishment. We only used what we had on hand and now we have this gorgeous, playful organizer that will keep my current folders nice and neat. It also has room to add a few more (yeah!).
Now, I used this to store my folders but I'm going to do another to sort and store my various rubber stamps. I'm embarrassed to say they are just flopping around in a drawer right now. Sad but true. I want to take a box with a lid and design a stamp sorter, complete with divider folders for the different brands I use. Anyway...you get the idea. If you want to create a simple, useful gift for someone...this is it! You may even want to make a starter gift by adding a stamp or folder to your box when you present it to them. What a fun way to use your creativity and help to spark someone else's!
