Hey there, crafty friends! It’s Aly here today. How’s your new year going so far? If you’re anything like me, storage and organization have been on the brain! I’m trying to get my craft room back into an efficient and organized state for upcoming projects this year. So, today I’m sharing my favorite tip for storing and organizing your scrapbook paper scraps, because let’s face it, we all have them, right?
My favorite way to store my paper scraps is in the Expandable Paper Storage folders, and I organize them by color for cardstock, and by collection for patterned paper.
Inside each of the slots, I store the scraps in 12×12 Photo Sleeves so I can easily remove them when creating. I trim off the edge of the photos sleeves that has the holes so they’ll fit into the slots.
I created custom tabs by typing the different colors onto white cardstock, and then punching out the text with the Tab Punch. Then I slid the custom tabs into the tab holders on the dividers.
I keep my Expandable Paper Storage folders in the cubicles next to my desk so I can access them anytime I’m creating. So far it’s worked really well for me, and I feel like I’m using more of my paper scraps because they’re easy to find.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this idea has inspired you to get your paper scraps organized and stored so you can use them most efficiently. Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more exciting new release announcements!
