Today, I've made myself a promise. I will get rid of most of my scraps before attempting a new project. I decided to make scrappy blocks and put them nice and neat in a pizza box. My pizza box should hold up to a 16" X 16" block. This way the blocks will keep wrinkle free until it's time to make a projects. Here is my first block.

I like your pizza box. The ones we now get pizza in have a cut out so one can see the contents. Can't use them but I have a number of the other kind.
I recommend a label in some way either with picture, fabric, or name of block on the edge so that when you stack them you do not have to go through a dozen of them before you find the right one.

When I was making my first quilt, I kept my 12 1/2" blocks in a pizza box. The local pizza gave me a box.

Love this idea! I'm a fabric lover and do find it hard to part with any scraps this would solve that problem. :))
