I decided to purchase a bookcase as the main piece of storage furniture in my scraproom. I made sure that it was a large one that would accomadate 12 x 12 products such as my paper and albums.
I then had to come up with a good way to store templates, pages and page protectors, photo papers, photo storage sleeves, various products for my current and future projects and so on since such things don't just easily sit upright on the shelves. Since they are clear they don't even have to be labeled.
I found these and bought four. I was very impressed. Compared to similar products, these are much more sturdy, the clasps are more secure and they have the useful handle. Plus, they are fairly deep at about 3". I addition, they have large, flat plastic dividers pieces that can help organize papers and the like more easily. I decided very quickly that I needed four more... for a total of eight (since they fit perfectly on one shelf).
So, I took a couple of them along with me to a family crop with my DMIL and DSIL. One held my current project and the other included paper that I thought might be useful to me or one of the others. The handles made them especially easy to transport.
Shortly after, both of my family members decided that they too needed to own 8 each for their own spaces. So, we obviously think they are great and now have a total of 24 between the three of us.
These bins are wonderful. They can hold all your pages in progress (there are dividers) or they can help you sort your cardstocks and patterned papers. Many other organizers fit inside them, so you can even store paper AND sticker folders in the same container. They hold a lot, so they do get heavy, but they are such a convenient size and have good strong handles, you can carry one on each side if you have them really stuffed. I only scrap with a group, so I have to carry everything with me. I am getting rid of my huge old rolling organizer and switching to these. They are modular, stack well, and you can see what's in there!
I love this !!! I had been looking for quite a while for something to put my WIP's in.
This is an awesome storage solution to keep (incomplete projects) in & away from the kids until I have a minute to get back to it.
Has lots of space and I can even put in a kit or two. The dividers are great for sectioning up to 4 different projects. I guess you could buy more if needed.
I like the clasps sturdiness also!
Used in this project: desk
i currently use this box with my crop-in-style tote to protect my 12x12 papers on the go. i have previously travelled with this box in my suitcase to secure my out-of-town scrapbooking purchases with great sucess! this box has met the needs of both of my uses and has made me a huge fan of the super satchel system i highly recommend if you have similar needs to my own.
I bought 2 of these boxes. When I opened the shipping box I was surprised how deep the boxes are. I bought these to store 12 x 12 paper in for stamping. These boxes are really nice and durable too, not at all flimsy and cheap. I highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a good dependable storage box. Thank you for a good product. Kamigirl:)
I love these art bins. I have 2 right now, I need some more. I like them because it keeps your 12 x 12 paper neat, with out worry if you're going to bend the pages. You can seperate / organize your projects too. If I use them, you should too :)
I used to buy the cheap boxes for my projects, but they would never stay closed. This one is perfect for my projects and the handle makes it easier to take to crops. I got it 50% off at Joann's and am waiting for another sale to buy more.
I got this product to hold the layouts and products that I got from the classes that I took at the Great American Scrapbook convention. It holds a good amount of stuff.
