I made my own embellishment carousel using a Rubbermaid double carousel and the six-container Stampin' Stacks -- although most of them I bought at Michaels. I spray-painted a tall tin-can white and attached it with foam tape to the center of the top disk. The Stampin' Stacks are attached to the can with velcro tape, so that I can remove one or two if I want to take them with me somewhere. The rack on the lower disk I found in the clearance bin at Michaels for $4. I labeled all the embellishment containers using a label maker. The tin can is divided into three sections. One section holds my Crop-a-dile; one holds a ruler; and the third, into which I put a 'shim' so that it is shorter, holds my button-shank cutter. This is my version of Stampin' Up's new embellishment carousel -- at a much cheaper cost, mainly because I had all the containers, purchased over time with coupons at Michaels.

What a great job and very creative. Are you an engineer? You should be. I love it when we can do things like this and solve a storage problem with items that we alter and use in a totally different way than what they were designed for. Clever woman!!!!!
