Slim scrapbook cases

Post by Coral3 on Mon Jun 25, 2012 12:07 am

Just wondering if anyone has tried using these particular cases for paint storage? I like the look of the loose lids, which could be slipped underneath while painting (rather than having attached lids which fold back & get in the way). I am wondering if they're made out of good solid/sturdy plastic though...wouldn't want them if they were the thin/flexible plastic. Question

Anyone tried them?

That might be great. I've loved my slim scrapbook cases and they are great for birthday parties but it's hard at fairs. I have to take them out and put them in a drawer divider because of the lids being attached.

Oh, you know what. You'd have to store them flat though because they don't snap. I can snap my lids closed and put them vertical....so they won't work for me. Dang it.

I cart cases of paint around vertical at times too, Denise. I'm thinking it won't be such a big problem...as long as I hold the lid on while getting the case in/out, then make sure other stuff is packed up against it to keep the lid on during transport (which I usually do anyway), I'm thinking they'll be okay. Failing that I'm sure I can rig up a simple strap or something (with velcro at each end maybe?) to go around the whole stack of them at once and keep everything snug.

Anyway, I just ordered myself five, so will find out soon enough I guess.

Tell me what you think when you get them. I think the one strap around all is a good idea.

...just wondering now how I could make like a 12" wide wrap-around out of black towelling, so I can whip it open on my table - and, hey presto! - there's my work-area towel, already laid out ready. (But it might be too painty to wrap back around the paint cases by the end...so not sure if that would work in practice!)

I was just thinking about two velcro straps around the cases like this only longer:

Hi
I just went and checked out our new container store... they have tin boxes(light weight) for 8.99 about 2 in deep... 12 1/2 x 9 1/2. These have a lid.. They had small plasitc rectangles just a tad bit smaller than the one stroke.( in packages of about 10) A lot of smaller acrylic containers for travel kits, or just repotting into one container. I so far really like these plastic containers they are 14 1/8 x 10 3/5 x 1 1/2 in. They have a fold down handle and are recessed so you can pull them out without a handle. They have a removable clip on the inside and the best part is they are only 3.99. Portable Project Case

^ 2 inch would be too deep for what I want - they just need to fit one layer of 32g round cakes neatly, without a heap of unused depth. I have some rectangular document cases which will hold 11 cakes each, but they're not ideal due to the folding lid which gets in the way. The square scrapbook containers will hold 16 cakes neatly (well, I'm hoping!)

you could prolly use a piece of elastic to hold your cases shut while in transport..get 1 inch and stretch it around measure and then sew it closed...
i really like the straps denise showed in her picture...

I just use the really big rubber bands around my laptop case during transport (just in case) cause I let it ride vertically.

thought I would share my strapping system for those who may be interested- a 260Q - they make great rubber bands -and do well at child proofing my cabinet doors too!

well I thought it may be useful to the paint and twisters out there at least.
