So, just how many sponge daubers have you misplaced or lost? We think it’s a lot! Here’s the perfect storage solution that you’ve been waiting for!
Dimensions: 7.5” x 4.75” x 1.5”
Our exclusive Sponge Dauber Storage Box is just what you need for your ever-expanding dauber collection. Now, instead of misplacing your favorite daubers, you can label and store them in this must-have storage box.
This is exactly what I needed! I really didn't have an efficient method of storing my fingertip daubers before, and, as a result, I've wasted and/or lost a lot of them. This box puts an end to the waste and gives me the storage solution that I've been looking for. I've already purchased four of these and will buy more in the future as my ink pad and chalk palette collections continue to expand.
Now, instead of having them all over the place in unsightly sandwich bags, all of my sponge daubers are labeled and stored alphabetically and by medium (two boxes for ink and two for chalk). Everything is neat and clean, and the diminutive size of the box makes it very easy to take my daubers with me to crops. And it's impossible for the box to open by accident because there are two snug, fail-safe sliding locks on it!
A great product and an excellent value!
I ordered three of these...two arrived fine, one was cracked in shipping. I actually ordered one extra just because I had read about this problem on other reviews. I don't really need the third one, and figured I could give it as a gift or use it for portable storage, where it will likely get cracked later, anyway.
Other than being fragile, the box is great for organizing your daubers. It does the job it's intended to do, and it is pretty much exactly as pictured, so that's why I'm giving it 5 stars.
One problem you might have is that the daubers are stored dirty side up, so you might get inky fingers pulling one out if it was used recently. Would have been better if it had a foam insert with holes where the daubers fit in snugly, with the sponge part down, and enough of the "handle" part showing enough to allow for labeling of the color name.
This case exceeded my expectations in quality for the price I paid for it! The acrylic is crystal clear, and thick, not flimsy like other cases I have seen at craft stores.
The back hinges are well constructed, with a metal pin through the center for stability, and the front latches slide easily, but with a snug fit so the lid won't pop open.
The inner dividers are shallow enough to be able to grab the dauber you want easily, and the daubers sit with enough clearance in the case that you could add a piece of paper to the inside lid with a "map" to list which dauber has which color ink on them. (If you do choose to make a color coded list for the lid, I would still recommend adding a piece of window plastic over the list to help keep it clean and ink free)
I started with an Altoid box as a tray and quickly ran out of space. I looked at Containers and all the hobby stores. No products out there were the right fit. I remember seeing this box at a rubber stamp convention and was so glad to find it again and at a great sale price. I was shocked and very pleased to find them on my porch within 2 days of the order! The boxes arrived in excellent condition, the plastic was better quality than expected based on some of the reviews. Locking devices are a great feature and the download chart is very helpful. It's a nice compact size with enough space between each dauber and shallow enough to be able to retrieve the dauber easily. I love love this container and wished I ordered more even though I don't need them yet. Thank you!
I edge/distress almost everything in my scrapbooks, so I go through a LOT of daubers. These cases are great! I've purchased several for myself and several more as gifts. I am particularly fond of the slide lock, which keeps the top of the case locked in case it gets knocked over - everything stays in place and the colors don't rub into each other. I used a template to stamp the dauber colors on a grid so I can quickly find the color I want. See sample at www.LaurasCropCircles.com (look under My Scrap Room).
I have accumulated many sponge daubers over my years of paper crafting. I did not hesitate to purchase the sponge dauber storage box in light of its space saving benefits and the ability for me to see what I have organized inside. The plastic is high quality without being brittle and the locks hold nicely but also maneuver easily when opening the case. I like that I can store and transport my saturated daubers without them touching each other and without them falling out of organization. The storage box fits nicely in my top craft drawer in easy view and takes up minimal 'real-estate' space. I love it!
I bought a pack of 6 sponge daubers and in no time I had used them with 6 different colors. I could have put them back in the bag they came in I suppose but instead I set them on a shelf by the ink pads and I would knock them off, they would fall down behind the stacks of ink pads and it got very frustrating😜. This storage box is the perfect answer and with 40 daubers, I won't run out of clean ones when I need one for a lighter color. Thank you for making these available to us plus the price is very reasonable as well.
This was a great purchase. The daubers are not small but not large either. They really are the perfect size for my taste and talents. They get into tight corners without worry of smearing that corner. The box it comes in is great. It keeps the daubers separated from each other. It is easy to pick up your dauber and place it in the box as well. The box has a latch which is strong and should you knock it off of your table they will not spill onto the floor. Going to order another box for my glitter paints and chalks.
I love the sponge dauber storage box. I have one and will be ordering another. I numbered all my ink pads and put the same number on a dauber and numbered each hole in the case. So when I pull my ink pad to use on a project I immediately see the number say 25 and I go to my dauber case and pull the dauber out of hole 25. When I am done, my duaber has number 25 on it and i put it back into the case slot 25. This keeps me from trying to distinquish the color on my dauber and saves me a lot of time. Happy stamping..
I LOVE this product! Absolutely love. I use my ink pads 900 percent more. I don't really like the Ranger handle thing that Tim Holtz has, but these little daubers are perfect. And how do you keep them? If you've a lot of inks it's hard to keep organized, but not with this box! I took my Memento Dew Drops, each comes with a tiny label, and I placed the label on the bottom of the box so I always know what color goes with which dauber.
DEFINITELY GET THIS IF YOU'RE AN INKER/STAMPER!
