View Full Version : Premade Pastel Foam Inserts

Because it is still the first day of vacation and I am still in work mode....

Was making a cardboard box from See's candies into a pastel travel box. Had to visit 4 stores before I found the right foam and then today, as I am heating a scalpel and cutting-making my self crazy with this boring work when all I want to do is get busy with the sticks and paper. IT HITS ME! Having pre made foam inserts that can be modified by the artist to fit into the boxes available at craft stores or Jerry's would be genius. I would have paid anything to avoid doing this myself.

So I wrote up the idea and put in on Quirky's website.

If you would click this link (or cut and paste), weigh in, add your own thoughts to it and share this with your pals, it may get considered to go to the next level. Forward this please, skywrite it, however oyu feel like sharing. Much appreciated!

Hope that works!

If not, I can say if one sorts the pastels by value, they can be put on flat foam (and with foam on top) and if the box is cosed so the pastels don't move, one can pack many more pastels than with slotted foam.

Thanks for the tip! It would be lovely if you could still click the link for me. Thanks again...

I hope my click counted since I didn't want to join the site. There are too many sites I belong to.

Empty boxes w/ slotted foam are sold by more than one pastel company - search online. Also smaller boxes that fit inside other carriers like the Roz box. Like Charlie, I prefer no slots.
