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 LOVE sponge daubers. I've tried making some using foam cosmetic wedges and sections of PVC pipe, but nothing works as well as these sponge daubers. The clear case makes is sooooo easy to get just the right one when I need it. I use chalks and inks so I have plenty to use for both.
I saw these at a unit meeting for a company I belong to (Close To My Heart) and loved it. Another consultant had it and labeled each dauber with a different color so that we don't mess up our inks (we have a 60 color palette). I said to myself that I had to have one of these and ended up ordering one for me and one for my mother!!! I love them and it fits rights into my rolling tote. Couldn't have made a better product to store the daubers in!
I love these boxes and purchased 2 more after I bought my first one. I am an avid "inker" and this product keeps my daubers in order and protects them and my other supplies from the ink remnants. I can dedicate a dauber for each of my stamp pad and reinker colors to use repeatedly.
Love these little daubers ...awesome to keep in the case... you can make a chart and put the color on the chart with the dauber.... tape or glue dot the chart to inside of the lid...... and that way you can use the same dauber over and over ...you dont have to keep washing them
Wonderful organizer. I finally have a way to see all of my sponge daubers that are being used and no longer waste time looking for a particular color! I am surprised no one thought of this sooner. Perfect for anyone who uses a lot of sponge daubers in their craft/art projects.
