LOVE this product!
I (obsessively) collect a LOT of colored pencils, pens and markers for my art quilts. Finding a good way of storing them was a bit of a challenge, but the ScrapMaBox has resolved that very nicely. We are contemplating making another room dedicated to long-arm quilting, in which case I may be getting another DreamBox for that room. If I could, I would have a DreamBox and a ScrapMaBox in every room of the house.
I find the ScrapMaBox is taller than some of the items I wanted to store in it, AKA pens. It's well-constructed. But it's hard to get the pens out of it. It just wasn't better than the other things I was storing my different pens in. I'm trying to find another use for it.
This is the perfect holder for my many colored pens. As they are now stored horizonally not vertically they also will last much longer!
Trying to decide if I should buy one more of these...I have lots of pens!
I LOVE my desk. The only issue we ran into was the desk latch. When it latched, the desk didn't close properly. The holes were in the wrong place. My husband drilled holes further back and I am able to close up the desk. This was my second desk because the first one came damaged. This desk was in perfect shape. I'm still organizing it! Can't wait to start using it. Again, LOVE IT!!!
I ordered the Dream Box, pre-built. Unless you or someone you know is super handy and will come over and put it together for you, it's the only way to go. I'm single and I had to wait 2 weeks just to get some muscle over to bring it into the house! I wanted to LOVE this as I have been drooling over it for years (literally) Unfortunately, I can only 'Like' it. I believe that this is because of my not getting all my measurements prior to ordering. I just assumed everything would fit. And, it doesn't. My sewing machine doesn't fit. I saw sewing machines in pictures and assumed mine would fit. It does not fit where I want it to fit. The only place I can put it is under the table, and only if I remove the second shelf. I sacrifice a lot of storage if that is where I choose to keep it. It's a regular sewing machine, so it's not like it over-sized. Secondly, I make bows. Lots of bows. I was so excited to have one place for all my ribbons and tools. Again - size limitations. I have a 12x12 glass cutting mat that I use. with borders, it is 13x13. Won't fit, no matter what configuration I do. My cricut mats also stick out a little. I am able to make that work, but it's a little frustrating. Overall, given MY personal circumstances, I would not buy again. That being said - it is amazing. I was able to take 8 full totes and condense it down into the Dream Box. I am able to keep the majority of my supplies in the cabinet, but I do have to utilize my closet for storage as well. It truly is amazing.
I have looked and looked and purchased SO MANY products in order to organize the scope of my various art, crafts, sewing and other projects that catch my eye and that I want to try. But it was like I was grasping in the dark to find the path to overall organization. I purchased totes, drawers...you name it and my stuff was still not organized! So frustrating AND expensive! An aquaintence of mine said "hey have you seen this thing called a SCRAPBOX?" I said No?? She showed me the sales video? It was like a message sent from Heaven. I said " I gotta have that!" I did some research and I ordered one the next week!! I knew this product would take care of years of searching for SOME KIND of organization! I purchased the Scrapbox 3.0 and once I started filling it, I was able to sell some furniture(which i had various art-craft products stored), some large totes and other storage products. So basically it paid for 1/3rd of itself? Its been amazing ever since! I do alot more art and crafting and experimenting with each due to the Scrapbox. You can either spend the same amount of money purchasing all kinds of various storage products large and small and STILL NOT BE ORGANIZED or you can BUY THE ORIGINAL SCRAPBOX and never strive to be organized again...cause you will be! Spend more time with your arts and no time organizing them...they're at your fingertips.
I put this together myself and was pleased with the finished product.
Absolutely love my Dream Box!
My ScrapMaBox works perfectly with my Dreambox to hold all my pens and markers. I can easily see what I have and grab what I need when I’m crafting.
The ScrapMaBox is a lovely addition for many small items that you need quick access to. I'm using mine for paint pens
I'm so pleased with my scrapmabox. It was really easy to assemble and held much more than I thought. I left one panel out so I have a few larger areas. I love having my markers close. I had my husband build a tray to fit the top where I can put my stamping blocks. Now to save money for the dreambox!!
Was easy for me to put together.
Thought that it would be a little larger, looks that way in pictures. I like it, however for storing pens, pencils and highlighters for a quick grab if you need them.

not as usefulas i thought it would be
My favorite craft furniture manufacturer.
Love my ScrapBox!
love your products. they are perfect for so many things.
i love it
Scrapmabox Really like it! Better than desk organizers. Easy to put together, only flaw is a purple smudge on the outside.
Scrapmabox Wonderful tool. I just didn’t know what to do with the two clips that came with it. I did since find out that the two clips are for attaching the box to a second one
Holds a lot!! I love it!! I cant believe how much it holds!! I was thinking I'd have to order two, but one fit all my needs!!
Finally, everything in one place! I love my new Workbox 3.0, with all of my craft items now in one place. I highly recommend the lighted sconce for nice, bright direct light over the work desk. I have mine in a room with carpet, and I recommend you install yours on a hard floor. Other than that, I am in love with the Workbox 3.0.
huh... wish it had come with a little bit of a note saying you could leave out parts/pieces to have a bigger area...hubby put it together, now i gotta take it apart to adjust...but it will work..
Nifty Little Thing! It’s wonderful to have a quick-grab spot for all my various pens. Micron pens, Gel pens, Sharpies of various points - all organized, by color in addition to brand, makes me stupid-happy.
Love it!! It is everything and more than expected. Beautiful and well made
Not impressed Still setting it up. Had too many issues with the assembly. You sent the wrong hinges, 2 of the wheels were no good. You had to send hinges and wheels. I ordered a scrapmabox and it didn't come with the original order. After 2 phone calls and ordering the magnetic boards, I finally received the scrapmabox. It was damaged!!! You sent me a new one which took over a week or so to receive. It arrived while I was on a vacation. I just tried to put together the replacement and it too is damaged and it didn't come with any screws!!!!! I didn't even call yet about the screws. I am so disgusted!!!! Send me the screws and I will be done with you.
ScrapMaBox Great experience. No complaints.
Pretty great Great product. It's a little pricey, but very, very sturdy. I love that it was designed to fit in my Workbox!
Perfect for storing my markers! It was easy to assemble and it fits perfectly inside my Workbox to store my markers. I have two of them! :)
Unimprssed Poor. It was yet another defective piece that I ordered and took way too long and too much work to have it delivered. Not impressed with your company
ScrapMaBox Pleased but thought I would be able to customize it a bit more. Love the fact it works perfectly in my work box!
ScrapMaBox I love this piece.. fits perfectly above the desk and hold a nice selection of tools for my card making and Silhouette Cameo 3 ... perfect addition to my fabulous workbox 3
Easy to assemble works great The item is just what it looks like and works great. easy to assemble too!
Too small. I thought it Too small. I thought it was larger. My bag.
Great for pens, markers, and paint brushes I've got my scrapmabox loaded with pens, markers, and paint brushes. I really like it for paint brushes. Before, I had them all just in a pile in a drawer and couldn't see which was which. Now I can organize them by size and shape. I also love that you can configure the box to have different size compartments in case you want to use it for something a little wider or taller. The only bummer was that anywhere I can fit it in my sewing box, there's either wasted space behind it (if I've got it flush with the cabinet front) or wasted space in front of it (if I push it all the way back). That's not really something that can be fixed, obviously--if the box were deeper, you wouldn't be able to reach your pens. So it's not a problem, per se, just something you'd want to think about (whether you use that space for the box or for totes). I'll probably end setting it toward the front and putting little used items behind it.
Great Little Box I was upgrading my 2.0 with the latest and greatest. Chose this because of its ability to be reconfigured. It works great and fits perfect in the center of the box. I would recommend this
Works Great! Bought this for myself for Christmas. Went together easily. Love being able to separate my colored pencils so I don't have to dig through a bin/box of them.
GREAT organizer I got this product free during a promotion, so I don't know that I would pay $30 for it because I'm a big DIYer and I think it could be easily made but I'm sure glad I have it! I use it to organize my sharpies by color and its perfect.
Nice little box This came with my purchase of a WorkBox 3.0. I'm glad it did because I think it is a little pricey and I would not have purchased it. The box was easy to put together and slide into my WorkBox. Works well to store pens, glasses, tweezers, etc. Hides the surge protection strip for all the stuff that is plugged in. Good addition to the unit.
Scrapmabox When I received my scrapbox 3 unit there was a space for this additional storage unit. In my opinion for the price of the scrapbox 3 this scrapmabox should have been included. As this was a gift the person this extra piece. It came in a timely manner and was well packaged. I store my writing markers and pens in the many slots. It does fit into the area with extra space left over. I do feel it is overpriced. There are other containers you can get That serve the same purpose at a much cheaper price.
ScrapMaBox Super This is a great little big box that may be used for numerous things, not just pens, but a who slew of ideas. I love it, and it makes my WorkBox 3 look truly well put together with this little gem.
The better look n to be more Organized With having 1 maybe 2 of these.I'll get rid of the cadys that have all items in to place in these boxes:grinning:
