Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest storage ever made! This by far is the greatest invention ever!! I have so many! I use them to hold and separate all of my scrapbook paper. I also have one for each of my four children holding specific things for each one as well as for each of them holding the projects I am working on. I also have one for each of the kids I nanny for so that my boss can keep their momentous safe! Highly recommend if you want to be organized! Great for receipts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo cutter for crafting. Today I purchased a few of the accessories including the Vinyl Starter Kit, Chalkboad Vinyl. The cutter bundle I purchased came with a few other accessories as well. The 12" x 12" Paper Storage Case accommodates a number of Silouhette items in various configurations. Plus, you can see what's inside! I live in a small apartment and the hall closet has to accommodate coats and supplies for a myriad hobbies/crafts. Elfa Shelves and drawer units store most of my other supplies for sewing, needlecrafts, decoupage, painting, etc., but I needed something to store my new stuff. When I decided to purchase the Silhouette Cameo cutter, I knew that the 12" x 12" Paper Storage Case would be a "must have." It is portable, so when I am ready to get to work, I can grab my supplies and set up in my living room.

Many uses and a great price too!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Presious papers to keep safe, perfect I needed a box that was not heavy and the box it's self was not think and took up all the room. The perfect size to hold newspapers, not smooching them together and not so much room they went flying. And I found it. This box is so perfect has everything I wanted, plus light and see through. Couldn't have made it better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for anything you want to cover in plastic! I know this are regularly used for scrapbooking which is great. I will purchase another one in the future for my actual scrapbook or two. But I wanted to get something that would cover and preserver my Wedding Album which has velvet on the sides of it. So this would help so dust wouldn't get on it and its clear so if its on the shelf it'll look nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Sewing! I bought these specifically to hold embroidery thread - the height is just right so they won't fall all over the place, and I can clearly see my colors right through the lid. I bought four and am using two for thread and two for sewing notions. They stack for neatness and fit just about anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got me organized !! I needed a new way to organize my scrapbooking supplies and these 12 X 12 containers fit the bill. They are perfect for paper, stickers, and even stamps, adhesives, and everything else I use for scrapbooking. I ordered 25 initially and picked up a few more later. I like that they are clear so I can see what is in them but I also labeled them so when I stack them I can easily find things. The one disappointment I had was that sometimes they don't want to line up correctly in order to snap closed. I find this frustrating and would recommend they improve this feature. Thank you to the helpful personnel at The Container Store that met me outside at my car with my containers when I ordered online and called ahead. That made for extremely easy shopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from storage of scrapbook paper I ordered these for flat storage of my paper, then I had a friend make a shelving unit to hold all my books and paper. The containers were great because they take up such a small amount of room. And they hold a large amount of paper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great School Storage My friend let me borrow one of these and they're perfect! I'm going to buy one that will store my paper for school next year. I'm not the best organizer ever, not bad, but not good either, so this will be one of many helpful tolols I hope to have next year. It'll keep my papers from bending too, so I can use a clean and unrumpled sheet for my work.

I have record albums that measure 12'' by 12" would they fit in this container without any trouble to take out or get stuck in it. Also without getting bent or warped.
Asked by: QUICKCARL1960
The interior of our 12" x 12" Paper Storage Case is too small for storing LP record albums. See our product suggestions below.

How deep is this box?

I'm looking for something that will fit in a 2.5" deep drawer, and hope this will! I live in the country, and am really tired of the mice romping (and pooping) on my cooking utensils. I hope your plastic box will keep the mice out and my knives clean! The drawer measures 20"x12"x2.5". Thanks, Margaret
