That is really cool, but I would need an entire staircase to hold all of mine Is that yours? Where did you find it?

Okay so the stickles photo didn't show up before the photo of the football player so I was sat wondering where he was keeping his stickles! lol!!!

But that is a cute solution. I keep mine in a plastic box ready for putting in my tote for crop. I like to keep most of my things in easy transportable storage boxes.

here's a link. I am sure a Pea can up with a cheaper way to store them like this.

I could be wrong (I'm not very handy with a power drill) but isn't it basically a spice rack that has had a hole drilled through the shelves so that the top/neck of the stickles bottle can go through but the main body of the bottle can't?

Anybody got any spice racks they aren't using who doesn't mind experimenting then reporting back?

I really like the idea of stickles, but I'm too scared to buy them b/c then I'll want ALL the colours and that would just be DANGEROUS

I had the same thing happen {football players photo came up before the stickles!}! That is great...I so wish I had a bigger scrap space...for now i have to store mine in a drawer. I don't have much workspace. Love this idea though...

Cute idea but I would have to have a GLITTER STADIUM to hold all my stickles

I do have them stored in a plastic bin that fits them just perfect and it makes it easy to transport. I could easily just flip it upside down for the same effect.

I don't have a picture, but I'm sure someone has posted the stickles storage using an acrylic frame. Put strips of velcro on the frame and cut pieces of the other part of velcro to put on your stickles (or glitter or paint or alcohol inks). This works great and really saves space. You can use the kind that you can hang on the wall or the kind that sits on the table. I saw this and started using this method. It is certainly great and a space saver.

If anyone has a pic of this method please show it. It's the best I've seen yet.

Cute. I don't have very many colors yet. I also have to admit that I haven't even opened any of my bottles yet either.

I was thinking of the drilling holes in a spice rack too. I knew the peas would be able to think of something.

I tried the acrylic frames and velcro and my stickles bottles just kept falling off. (Often while I was trying to sleep, I'd hear little thuds from the scrap room!)

I like this spice rack idea. I'll have to keep an eye if anyone tries. My hubby has a bunch of drills - surely one could work!

Nice, but wouldn't the tips be constantly clogged that way?

I have a plain ol' 3' shelf on the wall on which I store all my Prima bottles and Stickles together. Even in storage, they look good together!

Okay. Mine are on their sides on a tiny shelf (I don't have but 8 bottles) and I am wondering if they should be stored upside down??

Love the Mastercard commercial/ad parody!

This is great, my mom had gotten me a shelf tiered kinda like that to maybe store some stamps on but I believe this would be the greatest use for it. I'll just have to drill holes,Thanks so much for the idea.


Even in a bad situation find the good and focus on it!

I have limited desktop or tabletop space so I came up with a space saving way to store mine. I have a strip of Velcro tape on the back of my desk (I have a desk w/a hutch top) and then I put little pieces of velcro on each of the bottles and I hang them upside down. Easily accessable and cheap!

I don't store mine upside down & haven't really had any problems with them clogging. I just shake them really good each time I use them & they've been fine.

I store mine upside down to avoid getting air "blurps" while using them. Clogging never occured to me and I've never had one.

I know what you mean, Kim. I've been researching all sorts of storage solutions as I reorganize my scraproom and am amazed at the price of ingenuity. The good thing is that many of them are great ideas that can be adapted to a more economical, while remaining viable, solutions.

I read this tip somewhere and put it into use..... I took the plastic insert from a package of cookies (like Chips Ahoy but smaller), washed it out, and set all of my stickles and re-inkers in it.
It sits in one of my desk drawers. (Super cheap--and the cookies weren't bad either. )
