Create and Keep Refrigerator Caddy Tutorial

Here is another alternative project that can be made with the Create and Keep Simply Sent Kit-- a magnetic refrigerator caddy and message center.
Both this and the accordion envelope album in my last post were made with the same kit.  And there are still a lot of pieces left so you will be seeing at least one more project made from this kit in the future!

The Create and Keep Simply Sent Kit comes with components to make a box and ten cards.  I used the box sections to make the caddy then added a post-it note pad and pencil holder.  I also cut one of the cards to cover a notepad and decorated two additional cards to put in the pocket.
It is very easy to make!

1.  Add sticky strip to the front of the two small side tabs.  Fold on all score lines.
 2.  On the back, add two rows of sticky strip to the side and bottom flaps.
4.  Adhere the back section to the bottom tab of the box front.
 5.  Fold in the small tabs and adhere.
 6.  Fold the box up and adhere the side flaps to the back of the box.  I removed the velcro dot on the front of the box to make it easier to decorate.
 7.  Cut a 2-1/2" X 4-1/2" piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.  Score vertically every 1/2".  Turn and score 1/2" from the bottom.  Cut away the bottom right section and trim the tabs as shown.  Fold on all score lines.  Apply sticky strip to right flap and fold into a tube.  Fold in bottom tabs and adhere to side of box.
8.  Decorate and attach post-it note pad with sticky strip.
9.  Attach magnets to the back.
