For my contribution to the Challenge I decided to make a Beyond the Page Project.  About a month ago I purchased the Multipurpose Box kit from my local Kaisercraft store at Robina.  I haven't made one of these projects before and I originally thought this would be good to store hand-made cards in under categories like birthday, baby, wedding etc.  I like the idea of having an organised system to store my hand-made cards in as they currently get put into a box in no real organised state.  Then I thought for while about this box and thought it would be great to hold recipe cards to have on hand in the Kitchen.  Then my third and final idea was to use this box as a storage box for my dies.  It really is a very useful and versatile box that could be used to store almost anything!

This was a photo of my old method of storing dies.  (Its pretty scary.)  You can see why I have been looking for a new way to organise my Kaisercraft Dies. My collection has grown steadily in the last year and I haven't been sure exactly how to manage it.  All I knew was that it was getting very hard to find the die I was looking for and that something needed to be done.

The Kaisercraft Multipurpose Box has come to the rescue! Its the perfect size for storing the dies attached to the magnets provided in the Kaisercraft packaging and you can easily flip through them to find what you are looking for.  I used the dividers to separate the dies into the Kaisercraft categories; Decorative Dies, Decorative Die Words, Card Creation Dies and Dies with matching Stamps.

I decorated the box with the gorgeous new Boho Dreams Collection papers and die-cut my own title for the box - how ironic!  This project was quick and easy to make.  I am now thinking a box for embossing folders, background stamps, flowers...the list could go on!
Could you use a box like this in your house to hold something?  If you decided to give this project a go, let me know, I would love to see your interpretation : )
