What can you stash in our Stash & Store boxes?

The Stash and Store product line consists of 3 box designs.  These boxes are dimensionalized so 3 of them will fill a cube.  They work with the IKEA Kallax & Expedit, as well as working with the standard craft store cubes that are available at Hobby Lobby and Joann.  You can mix and match the 3, or use 3 of the same – whatever is best for your supply stash.  This week, when you buy 3 Stash and Store boxes you'll save 25% - Learn More.

Designed for craft paints, sprays, glitter glue, and more.

This box has 3 small drawers on top, 2 in the middle and 2 on the bottom. Each section is designed around common craft supplies. Ideal for small bottles - glitter glues, paints, and sprays.

Stash and Store 7-Drawer Case

The 3 top drawers are 1" wide and 2.75" tall.  Ideal for things like baker's twine, re-inkers, glitter glue, & the tic-tac sized boxes filled with shaker filler from Queen & Co.

The middle drawers are slightly wider than the top drawers with a little more height as well. They will accommodate supplies that are 1.75” wide and up to 3.25” tall. I filled these with glitter bottles, dauber inks, glitter, and self-inking stamps.

The bottom drawers are the same width as the middle drawers, but give you a bit more height to accommodate things like paints and sprays. They are 1.75” wide and 5” tall.

The 3 drawer box is ideal for ribbon storage.

The top 2 sections are the same size, and accommodate standard  3.25" spools of craft ribbon from Michael’s, JoAnn or Hobby Lobby.

The bottom section is a little taller, so bigger spools of ribbon up to 4" will fit comfortably.

Consider sorting your ribbon into the 3 drawer box following the 4 Section System – no need to include section 1 (alphabets and numbers), but sections 2, 3, & 4 (themes, holidays, and the rainbow), are perfect for ribbon organization.

The 5 drawer box came into being because I’m a WASHI TAPE ADDICT!!! I’m not ashamed to admit it, and I’ve got no intention of getting help. I love washi tape so much, I usually have multiple rolls of it in my purse or computer bag.

The 5 drawer box will hold over 100 rolls of washi, but it will also hold countless other items.

So, I think the real question is - What CAN'T you store in our Stash & Store boxes?
