Luvin' my paper pad storage!

  I don't know if you are like me but I have piles of 6x6 and 8x8 paper pads in my cabinet but find if I have them out on my desk I am more inclined to use them.  I also like to bring out my season pads so that I remember what I have- and what a great way to do this with Gina's Paper Pad Holder.  
When I got this box I had to assemble it and I wanted to share a couple of photos on how easy it is to put together.  
1. I typically lay all the pieces out to see how they fit together, make sure the shinier side is on the outside and that all the slots fit- basically put it together without the glue. 
2. I then start the glue process, remember there are slots so I put a small amount of E6000 along the edges and then stick them together- holding them in place with some support as you will see in picture 3.
3. Once I get the outside pieces together it will look like photo 4: to get to this step I will usually put all 3 pieces together and then provide the support on each side so that in 30min the outside is together and dry enough to move on. 
4. The last step is to add the dividers, once you put all these pieces in you will want to make sure that you have the support to push it together on each side again until the glue dries (approximately 30min).  And there you are ready for the fun part! 

And there you go- time to do some fun embellishing.  You can make it quite simple as I have- or go way out with die cuts and chippies!
