I did it. I cut the Kona! I've debated for years while watching so many others take the plunge, but never wanted to break up the binder of color cards I have, since some lines aren't as easily cut-up-able. Then last week while trying - in vain - to decide on the perfect progression of blues for an upcoming project, I gave in. So I ordered a new (303 set) Kona card to have on hand, and I started snipping up my old (270) card.
Midway through snipping, I realized I needed a good way to store the chips to avoid chaos at the start of each use. Fortunately, I remembered that Silvia of A Stranger View had posted about this not too long ago, and after a quick skim of her photo feed, I found the answer: a Lego Minifigures Organizer by BoxBox. It has lots of slots for grouping colors, and it's thin (less than an inch in height) and light weight for storing. I'm going to slip it on the shelf right between my binders of thread and fabric colors : )
Have you cut up your color cards? Have a great storage idea?
