One question often asked in papercrafts is how to store things.  I've tried all sorts over the years and this is what works for me.  All made from mountboard & gummed tape.

 I have about 8 of these, for 6*6 and 8*8 pads.  This is an 8*8 size.  Considering it's only held together with gummed tape it will hold it's own weight when filled full.
 Similar size to my 8*8 boxes, just made wider so I can fit 2 lots of a6 folders side by side.  Was no more difficult to make, just 2 extra pieces to tape into place.
 This took a lot of work, a large box bought at homesense, filled with folded & glued pigeon holes then painted.  The drawers hold a full set of distress markers and there's a row onto where I can fit stickles and reinkers.
 My ribbon box from a few posts back.
Stamp storage. filled with not quite a5 pieces of single sided laminate inside cheap self grip poly bags.  If I'd used avery elle & muji boxes I'd have had to pay out several hundred quid.. this cost me less than a tenner and holds at present over 400 sheets (there are a few more boxes to the side) with room for at least another couple of hundred.  Where I have stamps with matching dies I've added a strip of magnet to the back and the dies are in the pocket with the stamps.
