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 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 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 was so excited to have a clear storage container for my daubers. I even threw out the original packaging. Well now I wish I hadn’t done that. One hinge on this product completely broke off. The other a small silver pin that slides out every time I open the lid. Don’t waste your money
Latches not attached to plastic box, therefore cannot latch. I've purchased this item before with no problem so was disappointed when this one came damaged or latches never attached. Would give 5 stars if it worked properly. Yes, I tried to attach them as did my husband; it's not happening.
I bought this. along with the daubers to fill it. Am happy enough with the daubers but this box is terrible.. those little black latches fall right off if you even look at the box wrong while it is open. there i no way for them to stay on unless the lid is closed and latched.
The plastic box is OK, but what could be wrong with that, right?. The sponge daubers are very cheaply made, the first one i used big chunks of the dauber came off, and i was only making a template of the colours to go in the lid of the plastic box. That was not the only one however, some of the others have had small pieces come off, leaving bits on my cards. I have other daubers of a different style and have used them many times without incident, thought it would save me time washing them out, by having a set i could just colour co-ordinate with my ink pads. Sorry i do not recommend this product even at the sale price.
