Silhouette UK: Card storage and organiser

Hello, I hope you had a great weekend! For this week’s project I wanted to make something 3D but at the same time something useful for my craft room. I stumbled across this card storage and organiser from Sweet Afton and thought this would be great. It will help me keep my cards organised so I can easily find a card to suit the occasion. Whatsmore the chipboard from Silhouette was perfect for this. This cut file was originally for A2 (American) style cards, but I often design cards larger than this, so I increased the size to fit cards 6″ wide. 

card storage and organiser process overview:

Once I had changed the size of the cut file to 6″ (a size that will fit most of my cards), I cut the design out in chipboard. When I selected chipboard for the material to cut, I tested out the cut settings and found these were not cutting through the chipboard. In the end, I had to increase the blade depth by two. It just shows how important it is to text cut first and your machine and blade can affect the cut settings. 

The paper I used to decorate the box and dividers is from docrafts and is 12×12 Modern Deco Paperpack. This pack has some lovely papers in it, perfect for decorating your 3d projects. 

*for full instructions on how to adjust to cut file to your size, see the link at the end of the post to take you to the Silhouette UK blog where you will find step by step instructions with screenshots.
