Scissor Holders and Miss Carole's Templates

The scissors holders I showed a couple days ago sold out right away and I made a few more over the holiday and added them to my esty site. They make the perfect stocking stuffer and gifts for a secret sister...
Don't miss out on this batch..





And I made progress on my project for Miss Carole's templates... I found the perfect divided pencil box at JoAnn's.  It is very shallow and has a lid that snaps on... I added some rainbow colors to the section which matched the colors on the groups of templates.  I also finish and laminated the cards which are also coordinated and on a ring.. Once I find an  template in a glance  on a card, I can find it in two seconds in the tray...






I can either use the tray on the table when I am drafting seams but since it fits perfectly in the drawer next to my sewing table... I'm thinking that's its main location... I can snap on the lid for travel but the idea of a CQ travel case is definitely in the future.... not the near future tho...  I just love my new system... and it will make using the templates so much easier...

It is always nice to have things organized and at the tip of your fingers.

Great way to organize your templates! Very logical and easy to find this way I'm sure. I can see why your scissors holders sold out. They are so pretty and great idea.

Your method makes a lot of sense to me. I still have my templates in the mailing envelope they came in except for the 3 I most commonly use. I need to get them out and organized so I use them more frequently especially now that I am going to work on a lapquilt for cqjp2012.
