Love the shallow totes for easy access to specialty papers. And I was able to rearrange some of the other shelves and totes so that I only had one 12x12x3" tote left over after adding the 1" totes. I did have a little bit of confusion with the new shelf pegs, but when I realized that the ends going into the unit actually fit together with the peg on the opposite side, they were easier to install. It's hard to explain how they work together but a video might have helped with that.
So nice to have everything in one place instead of 5 different pieces of storage furniture. Loving it!!
I love having somewhere to put my paper scraps in my tower...I now have enough room to also store my markers which I didn’t have when I used the fabric totes. Customer service were awesome in getting these to me in Australia
Love my shallow totes can fit all my Unmounted
Love the ability to store my paper by color.
These came perfectly packaged and quickly. They are perfect as cardstock drawers, which is what I ordered mine for. I love them as a new addition to my WorkBox!
I saw this Dream Box as the ultimate organizational system for this home craft business that I wanted to start based on a program I bought into last year. Seeing this helped me visualize that I could keep VERY organized with the kind of crafting and the rate and volume of projects that I wanted to store and organize.
I love the piece itself. I put it together all by myself. The only parts that I found difficult were,
1) Please label the tops and bottoms of the actual pieces and also on the diagrams.
2) Make the diagrams bigger or enlarge details somehow.
3) The only thing that did not really work well at the end was that the top when closed does not really meet even with the magnets. I built it square...maybe someone there has a suggestion? I keep it open, and even with cats, they can't get in the stuff.
I love my scrapbox! It is even better than I could have imagined. I love that my stuff is now so organized and easy to find. It makes crafting so much easier.
NOT 1 inch totes. They are 3/4", 25% less capacity than implied.
1" Totes - Great Concept!
The concept of these smaller totes is fantastic for paper crafting! I am able to fit 91 mini ink cubes in one tray and 16 large distress oxide ink cubes in one tray!! This solved a big storage problem for me!! A couple of downsides - the first was a few warped trays and I see others have had this challenge as well. I've reached out to customer service so I'm sure they'll take care of it. Also - somebody mentioned metal clips - I didn't receive metal clips, mine were plastic and I must say it was actually extremely difficult to get the shelves in place with the 1" space. The plastic clips moved all around and the clip part broke or got crushed on several of them while I was trying to get the shelves in place. In the end, after some struggles, I got them in place even though some of the clips are broken. Metal ones would have been fantastic... Curious why that other reviewer actually did get metal clips? Even with the installation challenges and a few warped totes - the concept is wonderful and I love them.
Love the 1” totes! Definitely solved a storage issue and complements the WorkBox well. Unfortunately several were extremely warped, (almost by 1/2”) and two were very scratched on the bottom. I was a little surprised they were shipped in such poor condition.
Needed extra storage
Love them for stamp pads. Increases needed storage space.
Perfect space savers
I do love my 1" totes. They're great for being able to store paper flat without taking up too much space. I've got my paper, card stock, cardboard, and cross stitch patterns in them. I also have unfinished paper projects laid out in a couple of totes, all flat and nice where I can come back to them anytime.
Installing them meant that I wasn't able to use a couple of my big totes in that section of the box, which was a downer. However, I had extra space in my right and left cabinets, and customer service let me purchase extra pegs and shelves (they ended up being the wrong size, so I just sawed them down) so I could use my extra, large totes in the upper R&L cabinets (I don't have machines that need to fit there, so the space there at table height was going to waste).
The only complaint I have is that in my stack of 1" totes, the top two totes were really warped such that they wouldn't even slide into the space between the shelves. Again, customer service was great in sending me replacements, but the two totes they sent were just as warped. I feel like it must have something to do with the way they're stored in the warehouse or from the pressure during shrink wrapping. But I eventually just gave up. So two of my totes are on shelves with a 2" gap rather than the 1", which isn't ideal but I'll manage. I store my 1" supply stackables in them, which need a little more height anyway.
Overall, glad I purchased them!
1”totes to the rescue
I bought these originally for my wooden stamps and ended up using them for my ink pads and my Gemini plates . Which helped me use the regular totes to the maximum without wasting space .
Literally doubles your space
Love, love, love these.. ordered a second set to double the space for so many more choices for scrap booking projects
Love the 1” trays
I’ve had them for several weeks now and I have to say they are perfectly sized for embossing powders, distress markers, ink cubes, and seed beads. I really appreciated the additional shelf boards that came with them, and the metal shelf supports are fabulous. They are a great improvement over the plastic clips because the shelf sits on top without having to be aimed into a narrow channel. I’m really pleased with the whole thing. Installation was easy and it meant I was able to get a few more supplies into my Scrap Box.
Love that these totes are shallow. I use them for scrapbook paper, and I don't really need the large bins to separate scrapbook paper in. I use these for the papers I just have a few sheets of.
