Craft box or drawers

DD 11 is getting a selection of craft items, and rather than wrapping them individually, I’m thinking of putting them in storage that she can keep in her bedroom - to hopefully help keep it tidy!

She already has a trofast unit with the shallow drawers so we may end up sticking with that, but I’m hoping for something a little more ‘wow’ than a pack of pipe cleaners wrapped on their own grin

Does anyone have any suggestions please? flowers

I am doing this for my dd, who is craft obsessed. No recycling leaves our house without first being stuck to something else and covered in glitter! She is 6. I have bought a tin and put a selection of things in it with a factsheet on how to make something. With your dd being older you will have less of a challenge keeping it in one place. We have a plastic 3 drawer storage unit, boxes and a small drawer unit and it is still mainly crammed into a cardboard box in the playroom.

The Really Useful rainbow storage tower is great for this www.argos.co.uk/product/3233551?storeID=443&cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59157%7Ccid:596237168%7Cagid:30099185793%7Ctid:aud-144400486596:pla-207396801873%7Ccrid:94121745033%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:10072266024571954870%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:1o3%7Cmt:%7Cloc:9046130&gclid=CjwKCAiA3JrQBRBtEiwAN7cEGo5YezKdexC3Bh9LxusG9MFpQLqi4W2RYM3cPJ1UF_5JswvOHEE5PxoCkeQQAvD_BwE

thanks both, user your DD sounds very much like mine - I am a preschool gym coach and DD often makes items for that, we cannot bin an egg carton ever!

bebeside I've saw that one previously and agree it looks fab, but it's a little more than I wanted to pay smile

Try gumtree or selling sites. I bought one at the salvage shop of our local recycling centre. I quick spray with milton and it was good to go.

Ooh thanks Littlest, I would never have thought of one of those - that seems ideal!

Gutted. That rainbow unit is out of stock everywhere near me and I’ve listed after one for ages! That’s a great price.
