Nib Storage

This is an easy way to store nibs.  Just measure the depth and length of your wooden box, then cut pieces of corrogated cardboard to size and line them up one after another until the space is completely filled.  It's easy to cut the cardboard with a quilters ruler and an exacto knife.  The labels are be made of slightly taller paper and the nibs slip right into the curvy spaces created in the cardboard.

Instead of sifting through tins, finding the right nib is now just a glance away. . .

That is so clever! And I have the same Lane chest. All the girls in my high school class got one. Silly me just kept high school mementos in it!

I have the same Lane chest, too! What a hoot. And I got mine as a Senior in High School. What a great idea to use it for nib storage! :)
