- Modern MiniBox
I love my mini scrapbox. I entered the Mother's day contest The original scrapbox and The Cricut companies were having with no expectation that I would ever win but was ecstatic when they called my name. Dreams do come true!
Assembling the mini-box was fairly straight-forward. Unfortunately, there were missing pieces which were replaced, however, this did delay the finished product and I had a week of partially assembled pieces in my living room. It looks like one of my doors wasn't planed thin enough, so in order to attach the knob, I am using a screw that is too long. Thankfully this is hidden for the most part, but was unexpected for the expense. For your awareness, there are mistakes in the instructions and a missing step, however, it was manageable to work around. There is lots of storage which is great for organisation. Unfortunately, the smaller boxes do not hold vinyl/iron-on material rolls well, which was my main use. Perhaps in the future, they will allow people to customize which of the clear storage totes they would prefer. Despite its weight and being full, the mini-box is very easy to move which was my main reason for choosing this product. There is ample crafting space with the table top as well as the tops of the side boxes. I added removable hooks on the back in order to hang the cutting mats and to cleanly store the power cables.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! It is a good product and I have it in St Barth ( a smaaall island of Caribbean) ! Thank you to Jenny and the customer service who made a great job. You are great, you are good, you give happiness! Thank youuuuuuuu let’s create...
I uploaded before and after pictures of my craft room. For years, organization in this room always took a back seat due to how busy life gets when you're working, crafting/sewing and baking! My thoughts were always "I'll get to that...Later". Well, later was happily realized when I discovered your thoughtful organization furniture, designed and constructed with someone like me in mind! I nearly cried as I neatly organized everything in it's new home which included a place for just about everything! From generations of collected buttons and threads to patterns, instruction books and notions I actually purchased two of the modern mini-boxes; one for crafts and sewing and one especially for baking. When I need to cut out material for sewing projects, I just move them together for the perfect cutting table! I have to say, I assembled both of these mini-boxes together myself, in the hallway, in one weekend! See what motivation can do? Mind you, it took a couple weeks to get everything perfect and in it's place but... Whalla!! I couldn't be more overjoyed about the end result! Thank you to all who work at The Original Scrapbox!! You made the creative part of my life So much Better!! CK
Your screws for the top are only 1” screws instead of 1 1/8” screws. My husband measured them. We had to go out and buy screws to screw the top on. Also you need to specify in the instructions which door hinges to attach where.
My sister put it together for me because she is more handy. It took her several hours but it is perfect. I make buttons and other paper crafts. I love that I am so organized now and everything is is one spot. It looks amazing and adds a feeling of professionalism to what I do.
This is my second ScrapBox product love everything about them I will be getting more
The only thong I am a little disappointed is the doors when the table closes doesn't close and stays prop open a little I will need to improvise and add Velcro.
Great product. The shipping company they use is terrible. Based on my experience with the shipping company, it will deter me from purchasing again. With the price I paid for the product, I expect the entire purchasing to be great - the shipping company was RUDE. They attempted to deliver the product outside of the promised delivery window then refused to come back during the shipping time frame they promised. The Original Scrap Box is aware the shipping company is rude and has terrible customer service but they acknowledged they use them anyway. I was told to call the next time I order to request a different shipping company. When you paying $1k plus for merchandise, you shouldn't have to do that. A shame because their products are wonderful.
I love finally having all my various craft supplies in one place where they are organized and easy to find
The mini scrap box was easy to assemble. It is good quality, very sturdy. The storage boxes are the perfect size for sketch books, pens, pencils and crayons. It’s nice to have a designated area for craft items and if children choose not to sit at the incorporated table they can pull out a tray or two. Very easy to replace craft items and return to craft box, eliminating the mess and clutter. Love it. I like it so much I’ll be ordering the ultimate sewing center soon.
I really love the Modern Mini Box. I also ordered the ScrapMaBox and the box it was shipped in and product inside was damaged. I can email you pictures if you would like to see the damage.
This is the perfect compliment to my 3.0 Workbox. I like that I can roll it next to my workbox and have additional working space! My husband put it together in 2 hrs...Yes, it really took him 2 hrs!
I’m very disappointed in the product. I was so excited when it first came but the first step was put the wheels on and it was missing a wheel. I will say you guys have excellent customer service and got me the wheel in great timing. The problem I have is it is poorly built. My husband was finding that the fittings that things were supposed to go into were stripped in some so some areas only have 3 screws holding it together vs 4. They made screws too small in a lot of places so they wouldn’t fit so my husband had to go out and buy new hardware. The legs were bent. This was just something we found the whole time we were building it. One disappointment after the next. My husband being a man that can fix things was able to and I love how it turned out but was just disappointed at the building process. But I do love all the storage that my scrapbox comes with and all the places I can hide things from my kiddos. It’s just for that kind of money I would think there would be a better building of the product. Over all it’s gonna be great to have I just wish it was made better.
The mini box is my third purchase. I also have an Original Scrapbox and Tower. Love them all. It makes staying organize a dream and gives me lots of dedicated workspace. I do a lot of work for our little village museum and having to work tables has really helped.
Screws for the table were not long enough. Husband had to countersink them in order ft. Or them to grad the table top. Also I would recommend that the table top be hinged underneath at the overhang part so you can raise that part of the table to access the bins under the table easier. Another suggestion would be to leave one whole section with no separations so you have a long section to put your design trays (for jewelry) and longer tools that don't fit in those bins.
The parts provided, specifically some of the bolts/screws, needed to be longer. We had issues with the ones specifically used to connect the top of the box and the handles on the doors. We ended up at the hardware store buying our own because they wouldn't work
I really like it! Good quality the instructions were great and everything was in their bags.
Not all pieces fit right, had to have new top sent out. Not all screws worked. Shipping time was longer then expected for original shipment.
There was an issue with me over tightening the bolts that attached the wheels. There was also an issue with the nuts that were installed in the top panel they were installed too deep the attaching bolts were not long enough to start, had to purchase longer bolts from Hardware Store and install carefully so not to damage top.
So far, I love my Minibox. I put it together by myself. There were a couple of times that I asked my husband for help, but otherwise, it was not that hard. To screw the left and right boxes to the center box, yes, you will need another person to hold the unit still while another screws the two boxes to the center one. I had an issue with the bolts that connect the table top to the boxes. The screws were not long enough. I thought that since I had been putting the Minibox together for about 2 hours, I had lost the strength in my hands to tighten them so I asked my husband. He tried too and was unable to get the screws to catch. I emailed Scrapbox and within 3 days of receiving my email, new, longer bolts were in the mail. (It was the weekend before New Year, so it might have been faster if it weren't a holiday). The new bolts worked wonder! I cannot wait to continue using my Minibox and adding all mine and my daughters crafting supplies. The box is very sturdy and feels solid. I can see us using this for years to come. Thank you
Modern MiniBox Love it!!! Great addition to my 3.0 box! Worth every $$$! It’s easy to use and to clean up! Live the clear boxes, easy to see my materials/supplies ❤️
Love it I love my scrapbox, it organizes all my craft stuff and I love how it closes up and looks nice and clean.
Minibox ...it’s ok I guess I purchased the minibox for my wife and her growing obsession with sewing. We have a smaller home so this was perfect for a smaller space. I called customer service to estimate shipping so I could surprise her when she got back from her family’s out of town. They screwed up the shipping so she got surprised by the freight delivery instead of a fully assembled unit. She was still so happy though I forgot about it. Anyways the unit itself is somewhat underwhelming for the hefty price tag. The legs have already broken underneath the table and are very cheap quality. The hinges and screws are also cheap and have bent somewhat as well. The smaller doors on the outside swing all over so I installed some Velcro to keep them closed when opening the unit. If I didn’t pay 1200 bucks for this thing I wouldn’t be as upset. Overall the unit itself has great storage and workspace for her machines and she is happy. In my opinion this should not retail for 1000 without a few upgrades.
OMG. The Best thing EVER! I don't know how we ever got through school projects without this! I really wanted the Workbox 3.0 but was afraid it would be too big.. this is perfect for the space we have.. my daughters swim team, band and softball team use it all the time for school projects. I put a couple of motion light strips on the inside and it is absolutely perfect! Holds soooooo much stuff!
Mini Box After a long search for the perfect product for my crafting needs, I purchased the mini box. The speed of shipping was very impressive, as was the quality packing. We were somehow shipped the wrong colors for part of the center box. We had ordered black, but were sent white. The company was eager to help and very apologetic. The shipping for the replacement pieces did seem to be slow. I was stuck with this half assembled box while awaiting pieces. The overall product is great. I am very happy with it. The storage space is overwhelming. The hard sided plastic bins that came with it are very sturdy. Assembly actually was not too bad. It took most of a day. They even sent a mallet and screwdriver. That never happens with other products. The only con I can say is that the table to trim edge seems flimsy and loose, as if it will rip off easily. Im not sure how to fix it, and in all honesty I had not contacted the company. everyone I have shown it to is quite jealous! I hope to enjoy it for many years.
Pleased We are very pleased with our scrapbox. I was very impressed with the high quality of the materials and how well things ft together. Had some minor issues with assembly but your response team went out of their way to help me get it done and I was particularly impressed with how committed they were to making sure everything worked out for us. We are Very Pleased.
Mini box I am so glad I finally bought myself the mini box for Christmas! I have been wanting one for years! I finally said this is the year. My Daughter and Husband put it together for me as their present to me. ILOVE IT! I use more than half for scrapbooking and the other half for essential oil supplies. I couldn't be happier. Life is good.
Not as nice as they used to be I have purchased three generations of scrapbox products for my wife. The original workbox is great and very well made, and still looks and operates good. It looks like a nice quality piece of furniture when both open or closed. Next was the easy view desk. Overall build quality and drawer fitment dropped. Drawers slide on nylon tape. White paint stains easily and rubs off of MDF board material. Drawer handles pull off. No decorative features. Last purchase was the modern minibox. Very poor quality. All square edges, no round or decorative edges. Very Wal-mart or Kmart feeling and looking, while still having the original Scrapbox high build quality price. Assembly hardware is completely different than all previous models, but seems to work good. Once assembled, it's very hard to get into. Drawers aren't easily accessible. It does have a nice height and work surface. The scrapbox people are always very nice. I wasn't going to say anything or do a review, but just received an email from Scrapbox asking for a review of it. Sorry, but that's how we feel about it.
Beadboard Style on mini box Does the mini box come in a beadboard style?
Great for artists Wonderful storage, a place for everything
1k For Particle Board Flimsy. A grand for.... Particle Board? Pass...
Best Storage Ever! I got my Modern Minibox 2 days ago and I am already in love. It took my husband and I 4 hours to make, it would have been a lot less but we put the wrong hinges on the side doors lol. I finally have a place to put my boxes and boxes of crafting supplies and I only used half the space in this awesome thing! I love that you can customize how you want the shelves in place. It was a great purchase and I couldn't be happier. Thanks!
You will never leave this Mini Box! I love this Mini Box. There are no words to describe how versatile this piece of furniture is. I ordered the Mini Box after looking at the other products on the site. as much as I wanted a bigger piece from the collection, but i didnt have enough room in my office. So I saw the Mini Box and fell in love. I bought the piece and since i was a military veteran, I got a 10 percent discount. Since this piece of furniture was big and came from Utah, it was shipped on a truck to my house within a few days. They also give you tracking information so you can see the progress. The delivery is tricky. Your mini box comes in a box that has a pallet bottom. You will need a crowbar to open it, so buy one. The delivery guy dropped it as close as he could to my door. YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE IT OUT OF THE BOX TO BRING IT IN YOUR HOUSE. Don't be scared because the items are in 3 boxes inside the crate (Middle, Left, Right) so you wont mix up any of the steps. Everything is clearly marked too! You will also receive a bunch of clear totes in separate boxes. Assembly was easy! They supply you with a mallet, screwdriver, and wrench! I assembled it on my own and it took 2 hours because I was doing other things. The only thing that was hard...was putting the shelving in (I watched the youtube video and it helped a lot) Once it was complete, I was happy. AND IT HAS WHEELS!! You will love it and its worth every penny!
For All Crafters!! I ordered the the mini box and I love it. I can everything I need to do scrapbooks card and more. I wanted her hobby box but my place is too small for that so I thought the mini box will be small let me tell you it is not small it’s perfect for my space. If you can get it you will not be disappointed can’t wait to get another one. Thank you so much everyone at the original scrap box.
Every Crafter Needs!! I’ve been scrapbooking for over 20 years. The collection of scrapbooking material I’ve accumulated over the years would not only take up an entire room in our house it also took over half of the garage. I’ve spent most of my time trying to find what was needed since my projects were always so different. My purchases consisted of The Workbox 3.0, Studio Tower, and the Modern Mini Box. Not only does my workspace look extremely clean and professional but my workflow has never been so productive. The Modern Mini Box is a complete workstation at your fingertips. Without leaving my chair I can easily access everything I need. The table is the perfect size for all different cutters like the Silver Bullet, Silhouette, or the Cricut. I don’t think they could have done a better job the unit is sturdy, easy to put together and it looks great! I’m Now excited to work when I have a project instead of having that overwhelming feeling of “ I hope I can find everything”. Thanks for making scrapbooking exciting for me again and my husband wants to thank you for getting his garage back lol!
Very Nice The mini box is very nice for my needs and holds a ton of things, good organization. Had to get a furniture installer to assemble it, which was an extra expense but it was worth it. I had issues with placing the plastic inserts for the shelf holders because of the limited space between the shelves but I figured out that I had to use a small metal wrench to hammer the inserts in place. No other problems noted. I love my minibox!
