Cigar Box Storage

If you haven't ever visited Cathe Holden's blog in your internet travels, I suggest you pop over there and take a look around....stat! This woman has more talent in her little finger than I could ever hope to have in a lifetime.

I think I first came across Cathe's blog when I was searching for ideas for my craft space (which I am still getting nowhere with by the way). Check out Cathe's space and you will certainly understand why I became inspired.

One of the things that caught my eye in her craft room, was the use of cigar boxes to store her supplies. I find I often mix my craft supplies together as I don't have enough of some things to justify it's own storage box. My punches and stamps are just one example of this. They are mixed in with the glitter and the quilling tools.

So, I got myself some cigar boxes at the local market:

Added a bookplate to the front to hold the label:

And this is what I ended up with - clearly labeled supplies:

in a box of just the perfect size:

I think I might have to make some more of these for sure!
