Stickles Stand

Last year, I got a cupcake stand from Kaisercraft from my LSS (Scrapbook Centrale). I never did end up decorating it for cupcakes and one day I was telling my husband about this idea I had about using my drill (I love my drill) to make holes in an old shelf thingie to make a holder for my Stickles. We talked about how I would measure out the spacing and I thought about using Make-The-Cut to design a template. Then he came up with the BRILLIANT IDEA of making the Stickles stand from that cupcake holder I never used.

I just stared at him and as the idea revolved in my head, I told him that his idea was amazing!!!

Let me warn you that it is a bit time-consuming to make, but it will be the perfect way to store my Stickles because I will be able to group them by colour and see the colours so easily.

Partially completed Stickles stand.

My template has the perfect spacing for Stickles bottles. Many different crafting products come in the same types of bottles (alcohol inks, reinkers, etc.)

I cut the template file with my KNK Maxx and then placed it over the shelves of my cupcake stand. I traced all the holes that fit on the shelf.

The MTC file I designed includes two versions. One for the cupcake stand and one with holes included in the middle so you can use the template for any type of soft wood box or other container. You don’t have to use a cupcake stand. You might have something around the house already.

You can download the template from here.

  1. What a great idea! Now if you placed it on a turntable, it could rotate and all the colors could be easily accessible! Grab a Dremel with a drum head sander and it'll be easy to sand all those holes! 😉

  2. I had this exact idea the other day – I even drew a pictire for my b-i-l to make when he returns from holiday (He's a carpenter so has all the right gear) But then i was looking at a wire cake stand where the spaces seemed just right. I have to go back to the store today with some stickles in my bag to see if they fit….

  3. This is genius;0)….love it…Where, may i ask, did you find your cupcake holder? Would love to create this…thanks for sharing;0)}}}HUGS{{{,Sheri G

  4. Sheri, I got the stand at my local scrapbook store. The stand is at http://www.kaisercraft.com.au/newsite/products.php?prod=SB2091 and the site has a Retailers menu option. Look around the header — the menu is a bit hard to see.BTW, you can create it from any type of box too (like the storage units KaiserCraft sells). For example, look at http://www.kaisercraft.com.au/newsite/products.php?subcat=18 — you could use the advent calendar or one of the storage boxes. Instead of making the boxes, build the frame and place it with what would be the front down, then drill your holes on the back.

Thank you so much for commenting. I really appreciate you taking the time to do this!!!
