    I’ve been looking for a storage box for sets just like this and you made it! How perfect! Can you tell me what storage boxes you used (I haven’t been able to find ones with side clips or ones slim enough to store a bunch of sets in a closet). Thank you!!

    That is a great idea. I may make one for my son for traveling. I always take little gifts for the kids to have at the stops we make. Gives them something to look forward to and don’t have to worry about buying some expensive nothing at the gas station! I think this would be great!
