I *love* this idea



While checking out 2 Peas the other day I ran accross this thread and knew I had to give this idea a try since my collection of scrapping bits & bobs is getting out of control! There is an antique store we go to every so often and I always noticed big stacks of those trays for sale there. Well, this morning we drove over and I picked one up...it holds a ton of stuff! Best part is I can just pull out the tray and work from it instead of a gazillion bottles, bags, baskets...well you get the picture, it is so much easier...thanks for the great idea Jen...these are pics of my finished tray, pretty spiffy eh?!

Martha, I bought something similar to those at an antique show a few years ago. I was told they were mill drawers. I use them to hold my shot glass collection. Good find!

WHOA...that seriously looks gorgeous! So glad you were able to find some and that they'll work for you. I agree...I am SO looking forward to not opening a million containers to scrap. Yay! :)

Yes, very cool! Just make sure a kid or dog doesn't come in and knock it over (shivers at the thought)

This is such a great idea. Man..I want some of your button stash! So then, do you just leave it out on a table, is it in something, what?
