Default Plastic Storage Boxes for 12 1/2 " squares

Has anyone found flat boxes that hold our BOMs? The ones at Michaels are just a little too small!
I would like clear plastic, not too deep, at least 13" square. TY

Look at the flat scrapbooking boxes at joanns. they are about 13" square and about 4" deep. I bought several last year when they were 50% off. I store my project's blocks in them.

Are these the ones you are talking about?



I got some at our Walmart last year that were on clearance - wish I had gotten more - think they were by Sterilite

I think what you may be looking for are the ArtBin Super Satchel Single Compartment boxes at Joanns. They are about 13.99 but quite often have them on sale.

I use these Iris Storage Boxes, found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Usually the ones at HL are clear and the ones at M's are colorful. I use coupons from the newspaper ads and pick up one a week or so. They hold 12" blocks very nicely.

I love the ones from JoAnn's. They are about 14 x 14 x 4. The 40% off 13.99 (more for colors) makes them affordable at $8.40. They are big enough to hold all the fabric (except backing & sometimes that too) for a complete lap project & the finished blocks. Great for travel because of the handles. The fabric & blocks do slide to the end if you hold by the handle. They, also, stack very nicely. I haven't tried the ones from Michael's or Hobby Lobby so can't comment on them. Wal Mart has some good ones, but most don't have handles, or are too deep. I have used some of the shallow ones for holding the project, but move to the JoAnn boxes when I start sewing.
