I have room to store all my paper and with the lid I can keep dust and the sunlight off of it. Keeps it in perfect shape if I set something on top of it there aren't any bent corners or anything. It also looks great and will look even better after I alter it!!
I've been using this cube to store my patterned paper for about 8 months. It is still in great shape! Whenever you choose to keep it make sure it's in a place where you don't need to move the cube much. It's not meant to be moved a lot (I was keeping mine under a table and dragging it out, not sturdy enough for that). Lots of paper can be kept in it - a full 13 inches of space. The cover has held up wonderfully from all my stacking on supples and books waiting to be put away. If you do buy this cube, make sure to buy more dividers. You'll want more than the 4 that comes with the cube.
This product really works for me because I like to organize my scrapbook products into theme or topic. That way, when I'm working a specific project, all I need is in one place. It also helps me to pack for my weekend scraps so I don't end up taking everything I own "just in case".
