What do you do with empty PL boxes? They are so nice, I hate to pitch them but they need to have a purpose to stay here...

I saw them on a Becky Higgins interview and thought they looked nice. Are they large enough to store paper in??

I was just thinking about this same thing this morning. I was thinking I could store my finished but unfiled layouts in the large ones for the page protectors. I think they'd make great gift boxes too.


What are you looking at?

Do you have the old-style big box, or the new smaller core kit box? I think the small one would fit 6x6 paper pads upright if you took out the styrofoam thing.

I have the older box where the cards stood up. I didn't want to throw it away over the weekend when I was cleaning, so I took lid and put all my paint and mists in. I am thinking since the box is so sturdy that I can adhere patterned paper to it and maybe put on a coat of modge podge or something and just use it for storage. Now all my paint is in one place!

I have 2 of the 12x12ish ones that the page protectors came in. I have all my december daily stuff in one - that I really need to finish! And the other is currently holding LOs that are waiting on picture reprints.

My core kit box is still holding leftover bits of my core kit.

Confession: I have them all. I have saved every box since 2010. (They make for good photos when your new kit arrives each year to show the evolution =P)

LOVE the 12x12 page protector boxes but I have yet to find a use for them.

Let's hope they don't features us on an upcoming episode of Horders.
