Cricut Cartridge Storage Solution

Sorry, I have not posted in awhile, but it is my Birthday month (yes, I said month lol) and I have been trying to get a lot fun in.  :)

I have been trying to come up with a better way to store all the cartridges I have accumulated since buying the Cricut.  I have seen a few suggestions on the MB, but when I found this one, I thought, it is inexpensive, so if I don't like it, no biggie.  Shannon over at Splatter Pattern posted this solution:  http://splatpat.blogspot.com/2009/02/cricut-cartridge-storage.html   It is an old post, so some of you may have already seen it.

I did try this and it worked out well.  She posted all the dimensions to make the inserts.  It was very easy to make.

Here are a couple of my completed storage boxes.  Since all the big sales are coming up I thought I would share, just in case anyone wanted to try it.  She suggests using the Snapware Ribbon boxes, but the other ones work as well. I used the medium 2 layer rectangle boxes for the cartridges.  They only run about $9.99 or less, with a Joann coupon or sale you can pick them up for about $5.  Starting Black Friday Joann's has all plastic storage 50% off for the weekend.  Happy Shopping!
