Organizing scrapbook supplies

This is Great idea for organizing your scrapbook supplies (pens, scissors, paint brushes etc.). I bought this pop bottle case at a flea market years ago it has been in the garage until about a month ago when I decided to clear my clutter. I can't really say that I have gotten rid of anything but I have used some of the things I purchased in the past thinking that "I can FIX that up....- I can use that... - I bet that would work for..." Like most of the things they just sit in the garage until I am ready to get rid of them. So far I have put casters on a coffee table that I aquired from my sons girlfriend, I have started rewiring an antique lamp (almost finished) and I pulled out this old pop case and organized some of my scrapbooking supplies. I don't know about you but when I scrap I need everything in plain sight this helps the creative juices flow. I think that is one reason I like digital scrapbooking I can pull everything up in adobe and just go to town. Anyway these pop cases can still be found fairly easy at flea markets and if you are really lucky at garage sales. I bought this one mainly because it was Pepsi. I LOVE PEPSI!!! They are still very inexpensive where I live anyway around $3.00 to $5.00.  It is a good start to my organizing but I need a few more boxes. Now if I could only find a solution for my paper.... ribbons....stamps.... oh ya...... and the tons of treasured embellishments that I have saved.....
