The very first question is, do I carry a craft box every day? Prior to my getting this storage box, no, but I did carry with me a crap ton of craft supplies in various pouches and envelopes that clatter around in my work bag. It is for this reason that I went around looking for a box to begin with.
This is the box I’ve been talking about. It’s a three-tier plastic box measuring 15cm x 15cm x 13 cm. Each tier is customizable, up to six compartments if you use all dividers, and connects to the tier above (or to the cover) by two clasps on the sides. You can actually extend the levels of this if you buy more, just attach more tiers since all the tiers are constructed exactly the same. This was originally intended for loom bands and their components, and that’s in fact where I found it, in the loom band section of Toys R Us!
For size comparison, here is the box compared to a single Daiso washi tape. (Note my really cute wallpaper. No, that’s not my cat.) Let me show you what I currently have in this box.
The first tier holds a few of my smaller washi tapes. In particular I really love the slim MT washi tapes in the lower right corner. I was able to squeeze in a couple of wooden stamps in two of the top compartments.
The second tier is my stamping supply storage. I have two Artline stamp pads in the lower left corner and four smaller Love Qiao Shou stamp pads squeezed in everywhere. There’s a roller phrase stamp on the bottom right and a Muji rectangular label stamp in the upper right. Those things in the upper left, when spread out, are these:
That’s a square acrylic block for mounting clear stamps, and the lid of a Muji puncher container to protect my acrylic block. Below are a few of my clear stamps. A Hello Kitty set and a couple of bunches of clear stamps that I am currently liking. I just cut out those clear folders from card cases.
Lastly, the third tier is my stickers storage. I keep all my loose stickers here, which basically means all stickers that don’t come in a sheet. This includes sticker flakes (stored here separately in small plastic bags), my own DIY stickers, and random other stickers that I got from kits and boxes. There’s a lot of room in here, which means I probably will move these stickers around or something, or put in even more stickers!
I really love this storage box! To be honest I don’t bring this around with me everyday. I just bring this to work on Mondays, and bring it back home on Fridays. One of the perks of this box is it keeps my stuff in one place instead of several pouches, it’s fairly light, and it’s easy to just bring in and out of bags. The best part? I paid only Php100 for it, as it was on sale!
