Stickles stand finally finished

I can’t believe it has been almost 9 months since I last worked on my Stickles stand, but I have finally finished it and can now use it for storing my Stickles, alcohol inks and re-inkers.

The stand was originally a cupcake stand, made by KaiserCraft, that I purchased from my LSS Scrapbook Centrale. More info about how I made it is in my original post.

Below are some photos of the finished stand.

I decided to paint the stand black to go with the rest of my room. The colours of the Stickles items show so much better with a black background.

After painting, I used a sanding attachment with my Dremel to sand the holes and make sure all the bottles fit loosely. I should send a picture to Tim Holtz — I have all the colours of Distress Stickles 🙂

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.
