A DIY SCHOOL LOCKER PENCIL BOX

Hello all, Agnes is here sharing a super versatile storage box: a Locker Shape Pencil Case. It is an SVG file from a digital store. After uploading it to the Cricut Design Space, I duplicated it three times and re-size them to the following sizes: 10.75", 8.75 and 6.75".
It is a Locker shape box that serves as a pencil case or to store any other kind of goodies. Since school days are near, I thought this would come in handy. You could even use it as a gift box.

I chose this Esse cardstock for my base because it is a thick cardstock (100lbs) perfect for when you need a good sturdy base or cover for any project.

To the left, you see all parts ready to be cut.
I also used the Locker Talk Cartridge for the embellishments. I also used a Cricut marker (black ink medium tip) to write the words instead cutting them.
To the right, you see the first cut I made: the pencil case front.
This SVG cuts dotted lines for scoring purposes but you can change the settings to score but because this is a thick cardstock it is more convenient and easy to score if you let it make the dotted lines.

Sorry about some of this blurriness, I didn't realize until now and it was too late to start over. Please, accept my apologies. 
The first pic shows the Explore writing the words prior to cut them, the second pic shows all the cut parts and the third shows a close up of the words. I decided to fill them in with ink and used the same Cricut marker I used to write.
The colored cardstock is a mix of Pop tones and Basis. You can find these cardstock collections at the Cut Cardstock store.
Again, from left to right: folding along the dotted lines on the pencil box and to the right shows how well the explore writes. I did manipulate the size and shape of the High School sign to fit my locker front. I mounted the embellishments on foam tape square for dimension.
The tab at the right is used to open and close the lid.

 A few more pics showing some pencils and markers inside the pencil cases.

And more pics...I want you to check the texture of this Esse cardstock. It is beautiful. I am in love with it. I also want you to take notice of how the pencil box top goes in the bottom part instead going over it like a common box will close. I think that detail is very nice.

I hope you enjoy today's project. I think is a darling and very useful.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you have a great weekend.
