Tips and Techniques Tuesday: Stickles Storage Ideas



Hi all and welcome to Tips and Techniques Tuesday!  Today I am showing you a variety of Stickles storage options.  There many out there for you to find...some you can make yourself, repurpose, or purchase.

The main point I have to say, based on my many years of using Stickles, is the importance of storing Stickles upside down to decrease bubbles and stuck-up bottles.  Up to the time I realized that, I was consistently using a pin or undone paper clip to unplug the nozzle.  Then I would shake and shake the bottle and still get bubbles when using the Stickles.  :(

Since I purchased my Stickles storage system, I have not had to unplug the nozzle of any of my Stickles!  :)  It is not because of the specific storage, but rather it is because they are always stored upside down.  I picked my storage type so I can transport Stickles easily to the monthly crops I attend.

There are many versions of the upside down storage on Pinterest and the web.  I could not show you all, so please visit my Pinterest Board: Stickles Storage Ideas  I have found many, but I have in no way exhausted the available storage types.  If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.

Stickles Storage to Make


Lorraine's Stickles Storage
The least expensive I found to make is a repurposed egg carton: Lorraine's Stickles Storage  Everyone who uses eggs will be able to make this one!  :)  I wonder if the pressed paper type might be sturdier.  It nice that you can always make another one as your Stickles Collection grows!

  1. I have been using stickles for years and the sad thing is I never knew to put them upside down. Looks like I will have a new project for today. Thanks for the tip and ideas.

    1. You're welcome! It took me quite a few years to figure it out.

  2. I used some of that green floral styrofoam I found at the Dollar Store - I poked indents in it & that's how I store my Stickles - I don't have nearly as many as some of you, but it was easy & cheap - and I've had that system for almost 6 months and it's held up great :)

  3. That's a great idea and definitely low cost!
