    Recently someone had treated themselves to a rainbow of colors and needed a storage suggestion. I thought I would share mine. This includes two, three drawer storage bins used for scrap book paper. Each drawer is 14" x 14" by 2 1/2" deep. I used 1/4" dowels that I cut into 1 1/2" lengths using pruning shears! I pre-marked the drawers, used a little hot glue and wait till cool. I hope it helps! Mona

    Taking a bow...

    Why thank you. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars and I didn't want them exposed to the sun and dust. :)

    I like this a lot. Sure helps with all those threads! Would never have thought about hot glue. I would have thought it would damage the container. You did a geat job!
