Need Ideas For This UNIT! HELP

Hi everyone...well it's been quite some time since I've posted and I do miss blogging dearly. I haven't created or made any cards in awhile so I don't have anything to post of my own. I do however have cards I made at a workshop recently that I will post tomorrow :)

Things have been crazy in MY world and to top it all off I get hit with a stomach virus causing lots of yukkies and plenty of sore exhausted muscles. Some say it might be the stomach flu or the Novo Virus or even food poisoning. whatever it was, it's slowly going away. Weakness is still a factor at this point for fear of eating but getting better everyday.

Now For My Request : ) Isn't this cute...however I will probably alter it to match my craft space...

I saw this box and wondered what I could use it for. It comes with removable drawers and is made of cardboard/paperboard. The dimensions are 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 and 6" depth.

I thought about even separating the drawers and using the shell...I'm a blank...HELP any idas for storage ot even craft ideas would be helpful.

Thanks

Hi Michelle, sorry you haven't been well and hope you are much better soon.

The drawers could be used for heaps of things - storing ribbon scraps, flowers, stamped images waiting to be coloured, die cuts, bottles of paints, alcohol inks, re-inkers, EP. That's just a few ideas HTH :)

Oh, Michelle! Hope you are feeling better and stronger soon! Those viruses are so draining! This is a great find! A good size, too! I would either paint it or cover with DP. I agree that it would be perfect for ribbon scraps and you could separate the color families, or I love drawers for my smaller spools of ribbon.Can't wait to see what you do with it! Blessings to you!

I have no idea about the unit! LOL Ribbon scraps sounds good or maybe stamped or cut pieces you didn't use and wanted to save for another day.

This is a cool box, not sure what I would use it for, if not for crafting storage, maybe in the bathroom to keep cotton balls and such in. After you decide you will have to let us know what you did.

Unmounted stamps in CD cases?
Square envelopes/cards?

Looks like a fun decoupage project with some DP that matches your craft area. I hope this finds you doing well.. Hugs, Peggy

Hi michelle! well, I would use this particular storage unit for sorting flowers, or perhaps different colored ribbons. Maybe some small ink pads? Either way, it's cute! LOL Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about ya. ;)

Michele, Hope you feel better soon!!
I have something like that box, and I keep miscellaneous ribbons in one. Small stacks of paper in another.
The possibilities are endless!!
