I bought this to keep some of my projects together and then went on to order the scrap rack which I am in the process of organizing. I found it easy to put together. I did however watch the video and that helped. I also bought extra of the large pocket and was able to get my projects together in one place. It will fall over because of the weight, but I expected that.
Ok, it's a long title but I purchased these three products in order to reorganize my scraps and I love how they worked out. I give the basic storage page 4.5 stars because, much as I love the handles sometimes the pockets catch on the handle sliders, and the other two 4 stars each because the material is a little flimsy.
We all save scraps, some of us might be a little insane in this area, but there ya go. I have scraps from 1" triangles to bigger than 8x8". I already had them organized, but the problem with my current system was that the bulk wasn't spread out, so the scraps would fall to the bottom of the pocket they were in with the result they took up more space on the shelf and in my totes. Now they are together but the bulk is spread over a 12x12" area so that the storage width is much less, making it easier to carry them with me to crops. I realize the storage pages that didn't come with the paper manager are meant for a binder, but I don't like binders as much. Binders take up the same space in my tote whether tehy are full or half-empty. Folding back the 3-ring hinge or tab and folding it down so it will fit in the paper holder is a small price to pay for the supreme convenience of having all my scraps together and taking up as little valuable real estate as possible. I think I am going to do the same thing with specialty papers and embellishments so that I can go to one place for all Christmas themed items, Halloween, etc.
The main holder is built very sturdy but the pockets that hold the paper are way to tight . I could maybe get 8 sheets but when I tried 10-15 no way it would be very helpful if the pocket had a little more width to easily put 12x12 paper in and out. I will not be buying anymore of these products. It is also very difficult to pull your paper back out you almost have to bend it in the middle to do that.
I bought this for my paper collections. I thought the handle would be great for taking to crops and the inserts would be great for creating kits for crops... I rarely leave reviews. These inserts/ paper holders are just barely wide enough to get your 12x12 papers inside. They are just about useless. They won’t hold enough to even bother. Graphic 45 papers will not fit at all. I love my storage solutions brand, but was enticed by the handle on this container. That’s the one function that’s worth it.
