Help - Sizing
Dimensions for all packaging are all given for the OUTSIDE of the item. You'll need to allow extra room for contents to fit inside. For example, a 5x7 cotton bag will not fit a 5x7 card or photograph. You would want the next size up which is 6x10.
For fitting a basket or other decor item to your space, the outside dimensions should be accurate within 1/8". Occasionally and especially with handmade items you should allow some breathing room. So, if your space is 30" and you're thinking about getting two 15" baskets, they'll be pretty tight, if they fit at all. I would go with something 14.5" or less to be sure you have enough room.
Spools containing ribbons and twines, with the exception of vintage, come in three sizes. Dimensions are as follows...
|Mini wood spools||7/8" x 1-1/8"|
|Standard wood spools||1-1/2" x 2"|
|Cardboard spools||3" x 4"|
