Themed Idea Holder at


Do you have lots of ideas that come from magazines, store project sheets, patterns etc? I have many and I needed a way to organize them. I was using file folders but that storage was not sufficient enough for all the ideas I wanted to hang on to. I found magazine boxes at the Dollar store and created themed idea holders.

I decided to break them out into Seasons:

  • Fall (Halloween, Thanksgiving ETC)
  • Winter (Christmas, Snow, New Years ETC)
  • Spring (Florals, Easter ETC)
  • Summer (4th of July, Kids Crafts ETC)

To create these organizers you will need:

Magazine Boxes

Scrapbook Paper

Scalloped Punch

Hot Glue Gun or other adhesive

Paper Trimmer if needed


Measure out the scrapbook paper you want to adhere to the front. *Note: It is better to work with a thin patterned paper then cardstock. If needed, trim.

Take the paper and align it on the front and then slowly glue the paper to the box.

Once the paper is secure, punch a scallop for each box and write out the “theme” for that box.

Adhere it to the front.
