I have been re organizing my scrapbook room, and one of my many problem areas was paper and cardstock. Here are the three ways that I decided to store that:
My new/faves paper goes in a hanging file system that is under my desk and can easily be pulled out. These are the papers that are the most accessible because I use them the most. They are sorted by manufacturer and collection.
Here is what they look like now. I have them separatd into recycled USPS priority boxes. I cannot personally advocate getting these from the PO for this sole purpose, for ethical reasons, but these were all recycled boxes that people had mailed things to me in. I just cut them down using the plastic one you see in the photo as a guide. Then I painted them with acrylic paint. The colors aren’t artistic, they just happened to be the colors that I the most of.
Finally, I have some themed items–papers, embellies, etc. Stored in this container. It was somewhat of a splurge for me, but it was on sale and DH bought it for me for Christmas. In here I have: Christmas, Baby, Fall/Thanksgiving, Wedding, Love/V-Day, and one section for a few kits from kit clubs that I have gotten here and there. Mainly just themes that I have a lot of stuff for. It helps to have it all together, although some of my themed items are still sorted by manufacturer, it just kind of depends.
Anyway, there is my paper. I am working on a “big picture” kind of thing about how/where I store everything in my room, so I will be posting that soon. It’s kind of taking a lot of work though b/c I have a crazy need to explain every single thing.
And, now for the giveaway…
