Snapware Cricut Cartridge Case

I made this carrier for my Cricut carts. I saw a company selling them at SDV this summer and I thought "I can make that!" Well, I did and it was quite a bit cheaper than the ones she was selling. I got the Snapware containers from The Container Store. They sell one large and one small and call it a ribbon organizer or something like that. I bought another set of the small omes 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I have the dimensions of the plastic mesh somewhere. If you are interested, let me know & I will find them and send them to you. The cartridge bin holds 40 carts and the large bin holds 20 books and overlays**. I put my cricut tools in the third bin.
I made one of these for Cheryl as well. I think she likes it!

**I went through my books and tore out all the pages that are not in English. It makes it so much easier when I am thumbing through them.

Robyn, please share the canvas dimensions with me. I'm having a terrible time finding the box, so I figure I can at least start to work on the canvas.

I just came across your blog and I was looking to make one of these containers for my cricut cartridges. How do you cut the mesh and what are the dimensions. I would love to try and make this instead of paying so much for one on ebay. Thanks so much for your time.
