This is a listing for a pattern and video tutorial bundle, not the physical item pictured. It will be delivered to you automatically via Etsy upon completion of sale.

In this tutorial you will learn to make a beautiful set of sculptural stacking boxes (the base of one box fits the top of another) that double as a nightstand, stool, or table and stool set for children. You can leave them plain, or learn how to decoupage them (tutorial included) with decorative paper.

The tutorial includes step by step written directions in U.S. Standard and Metric, a pictorial guide as well as three video tutorials with links embedded within the document. You will need internet access to view the videos.

Recycled and recyclable, Totem boxes are wonderful for urban living, families, students, and anyone who appreciates beautiful, sustainable design. Together they create a fantastically functional storage system that you can also use as furniture in your home. They are strong enough to support the sitting weight of a 150lb. adult.

Totem Boxes are particularly well suited for storing craft supplies like yarn, fabric scraps and stamp supplies as well as loose-part toys like wooden blocks, Legos, alphabet magnets, scarves, etc.

You will need strong cardboard (like the kind that banana boxes or diaper boxes are made out of) and basic supplies like a pencil, white glue, a metal ruler, binder clips or clothespins and a utility knife. In addition you will need access to a computer and printer to print out your pattern pieces and directions.

Please note that this pattern is for personal use only and items constructed from the pattern cannot be sold.

If you are a non-profit, or charity organization who conducts ethical, sustainable practices and are interested in producing the Totem Box for sale, please contact me.
