Q: Will the drawers hold my 12" Scrapbook Paper?

A: The dimensions of the inside of the drawers will allow you to hold paper up to a maximum size of 11 7/8" x 12 7/8". (30cm x 32.5cm). If your paper is larger then this the edges will curl slightly. The 1" drawer will hold up to approx. 50 sheets of paper, the 2" drawer will hold approx. 150 sheets of paper and the 3½" drawer will hold approx. 200 sheets of paper.

Our paper shelves have been designed primarily to hold your scrapbook papers but be sure to insert them at an angle. Paper shelves have been created to be stationary. If you would like them to be able to slide you can purchase drawer rails to install instead of the metal dowels.


Q: Will the drawers pull completely out of the cabinet?

A: The drawers and rails have been created with a drawer stop which will prevent the drawer from sliding out. If you toggle the drawer left then right it will come completely out. The left and right rails have two small knobs one on top of the other that can be filed down to eliminate this resistance.


Q: Will my stamps fit into the 1" Drawers?

A: The 1" drawers will fit any standard rubber mounted stamp and the 2" drawer will allow them to be double stacked. If you have the Stampin' Up stamps and would like to keep them in their packages they will not fit into the 1' drawers.

To determine how many of your stamps will fit into the drawers, simply use a 12" x 12" paper and lay your stamps out on top. This will give you an idea of how many drawers to purchase.


Q: How big are the compartments in the inserts?

A: The 1" Insert is 12¾" x 11¾" and has 30 - 2" x 2" x 1" compartments, and is designed to fit inside the 1" Drawer.

The 2" Insert is 12¾" x 11¾" and has 15 - 2" x 3¾" x 2" compartments, and is designed to fit inside the 2" Drawer.

At this time we do not have inserts for the 3½" drawers, although you can place a 2" insert inside with a 1" insert on top.

Inserts are manufactured from clear, semi-rigid plastic.

Q: How do I choose the right combination for my storage needs?

A: The "BEST" craft organizer system has been designed to be modular so that you can select the combination that best suits your storage needs.

The 1" Drawers are great for rubber mounted stamps, projects on the go, small tools and punches, etc.

The 2" Drawers work well for larger tools and punches, storage boxes, etc.

The 3½" Drawers can hold fat quilting quarters, tools that won't fit in the 2" drawer, yarn, books, etc.

The Paper Shelves are designed to hold approx. 50 sheets of cardstock. These are a stationary shelf, they do not slide like the drawers.

Our 1" and 2" Inserts are a great addition to separate and organize smaller items like; beads, findings, eyelets, brads, ribbon, charms, etc.
