Holder for sharp tools

I got the idea for this sharp tool holder from a blog post pinned on Pinterest. I thought the original idea was brilliant but I needed mine to be long and narrow so as to take up less space on my work table.
I took the same cardboard and idea but did not use a jar. I glued my cardboard together with a hot glue gun just on the bottom edge. Then I put a ribbon and button on it just to make it pretty. I have a few more things to put in it. For now it has scalpels, xacto knives, needle tools and quilling tools. I love that the blades are no longer resting in the bottom of jars. My version....

  1. This turned out so nice! What a great idea on how to organize your tools. I always worry about dulling or damaging the edges of mine.

  2. Oooh, love that. Such a clever way to store them close at hand. Now wondering if anyone makes corrugated stainless for my glassy tools.


Thank you for taking time to reply. I really appreciate it.
