The Cricut Storage Binder
What a fantastic purchase I made! I've been long searching for a Cricut cartridge storage solution. First I bought some of those boxes, (the same size as the box that the cartridges come in) that hold 8 cartridges and are supposed to hold the co-ordinating overlays and books. I found that they were too small to hold the books and overlays. So I was putting the cartridges in the box, and the books & overlays into ziplock bags. Then I tried the Jukebox - which I found more clunky and cumbersome than useful. Then I spotted this little beauty on Tina's website! $30 gave me a storage SOLUTION! Very neat and tidy, stores everything very well and organized. I love that it is made of a sturdy, wipe able material. I adore the fact that it is branded with the adorable green Cricut head on it. I love that its black and the Cricut green. Forward thinking that it will hold my Spatula too! It holds twelve Cricut cartridges and the accompanying books & overlays, without crowding. The Elastic band holds the books in place and has a snap closure. (be sure to use the snap closure though - failing to do that can cause the books to all fall out if you pick it up by the handle and its unzipped) I think the handle on the back, very easy transport.
My only - and I will stress ONLY grief is that it will not hold the paper books - you know the two page ones that come with the less expensive cartridges that only have a few fonts on them - like Street Sign, Blackletter, and Home Decor. The pockets on the Cricut Storage Binder is too narrow to hold them without folding the paper.
When I was showing it off to my regular Tuesday night group of scrappers, it was a hit. I need to order two more now!
