Card stock storage idea!

I have a really fun project I made.   I got this idea from Treasure Box Designs design team member Jessica, she shared with the design team her method for storing 12x12 card stock.   She said she cut up used priority shipping boxes.  I thought WHAT A GREAT IDEA!   I've always had mine in those plastic drawers and it's so hard to dig through them to find the right color.   So... I cut up 4 used boxes that I had.  Here's the photo of that:

NOT very attractive is it???  I kept the tops attached to the boxes so I could keep a cover over my card stock.  It helps to keep dust/dirt off them AND away from sunlight which can damage your paper.   So... I got to thinking I should cover them with paper and add some paper piecings.  

Now how stinking cute is this???  I LOVE how it turned out.  The paper is by October Afternoon, the piecings are from the Scrapoholic file from Treasure Box Designs.   I only decorated one box front since only one shows!  Best off all... my new paper storage was FREE!  Thanks for looking and please share if you make a similar project!   ~DT Lara
