This project was totally inspired by TheMistressT and her pattern weights found here...
 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346578.0
I cut most of my patterns from thick clear plastic from a large roll of plastic so the pieces have a tendency  to curl.  So when I saw TheMistressT's pattern weights I knew this is what I need to keep my patterns in place and to keep them straight. Of course I had to complicate things. I wanted a pyramid shaped weight. On to the pics:

I used an old cookie tin to hold them in (Thanks TMT) and since I don't have any nice paper or stickers I'll just use the nice tin.

Here they all are with the proto type I made.
 
And a fancy picture just cause I like the weights so much.


Again, thank you TMT. Now to start using them.
Hope you like.

Sweet! I love the fabric you used. They look so cute pretending to be food in the tin and display stand.

Wow!  These are great!  You really invested some time and ingenuity into making the project your own to suit your own needs!  YOU'RE the inspiration.

Thank you so much!!! It took me less than an hour from start to finish after I figured out that I wanted a pyramid shape. It's definitely a fun and very useful project. Thanks for the giving me the "light bulb" moment!

They turned out great!  I love that you took inspiration but made them your own...and yes, they are fabulous for vinyl and plastics!

I love the fabric...but I especially love that you used what you had!

I send a lot of my sewing newbies to TheMistressT's post since I think these are a fabulous addition to your tools and supplies!

love these

Thank you Alwaysinmyroom! I'd bookmarked TheMistressT's post the minute I saw it then remembered it when I saw your post, I think, in the 50 projects in 2012. (yes, I lurk there).Got me moving. Now planning to do a cover for my scissor carousel.

Lol. I've noticed. You have so much energy and talent.

You've probably seen the carousels. It's a black plastic carousel that holds those scissors that cut in different ways\shapes. zig zag, cresents, etc. I'd take a pic but I gave my camera to DH to take pics of the snow w\the kids.
I bought clear plastic a couple of yrs ago for another project and now am trying to use it up and a dust cover seems good.

embercustumer, Thank you very much.

Lol! You should. I used them for the first time today and they helped a lot! I'm in love with the tin you made. I've got to get into paper crafts. I've no real access to a real craft store so I have to...shezz forgot the word. Look at things differently...think outside the box. (Or take a trip to the states. lol)

I've been dabbling in the paper crafting!  And looking at things differently is what creativity is all about, right?
