I bought this box for a scrapbook gift. I needed a presentation box which looked nice for the gift as well as provided storage for the book. It's a perfect size for storing paper and other supplies which are 12 x 12 since 12 x 12's fit perfectly. My book however needed to be trimmed down to 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 in order to fit comfortably FYI it's a handmade scrapbook and the cover was originally 13 x 13. I love it though because finding a box that fit a scrapbook without being too big was nearly impossible until I stumbled over this box. Being black, it looks quite sophisticated as a gift box. They come in many colors however. As a storage box for which it was intended, it would be perfect. The size is perfect the depth is deeper than most boxes like this which makes it great for storing lots of stuff and it looks nice. I would highly recommend this box either as a presentation gift box or as a storage supplies box--and it looks nice. I would recommend it to anyone for those uses. I feel lucky to have found it!
I bought nine of these boxes for organizing my supplies by season/family/etc. They are perfect for storing embellishments and specialty 12x12 paper. These boxes fit great in an oversize storage cube unit I bought from Target. I will be ordering more of these boxes as my re-organization continues. Great service from Scrapbook.com when I had questions on my order. Fast shipping...great product and great company!
I bought this to add to a wall unit, that is exposed for others to see, I have a craft room, I wanted a box, that looked nice and yet sturdy enough to hold my scrapping items. Very sturdy and strong build.
I really wanted the Martha Stewart boxes which weren't available anywhere. I bought these, and they will work fine. They are reasonably sturdy, but I wouldn't stack more than a couple if they are filled. They hold quite a lot and are generously sized.
A complaint: There's a label holder on the box, but it doesn't come with any labels. When you make your own, you have to be careful and cut them a bit large or they fall right through when you insert them. I noticed the 3 I bought are not all the same size. They differ slightly, so it looks like I have 3 slightly different ones stacked up. I'm OK with that. They also weren't very careful about where they put the paper seams, and the cover paper is cheap looking. They would have looked much better with an orange peel style texture. Since these are in a closet, I care more about functionality.
