I wanted a way to organize and store the specialty scissors used for trimming paper for scrap booking and other projects. I came up with the idea presented here.

Approximate Time: 1 to 2 hours



  1. First, cut corrugated cardboard into 4x4 inch squares.

  2. Use band saw if available, if not, use craft/box knife.

  3. Cut as many pieces as you need. My project required 3 pieces for each scissor, plus 2 end pieces.

  4. Ad

  5. Glue pieces together with white glue. I added 4x4in. pieces of cardstock between every third piece as separators.

  6. Place end pieces on cube, then add weight to the cube and let dry for a few hours.

  7. Decorate the cube if desired, use colored paper, cloth, collage pictures from magazines, etc.
