Welcome to Week #10 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour! Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about Paper Storage Pockets, so be sure to check it out.
This week I want to talk about another way that I’m organizing my Patterned Paper Scraps…
Week 10: Paper Envelopes
With each new Seasonal Book from Close To My Heart I tend to acquire lots of paper scraps as I create my projects. Since I have a hard time parting with scraps, I have decided that I will start dumping them into the Box until I decide to sort them by theme into Paper Envelopes. Here’s how it will work…
I have already sorted through ALL of my retired paper scraps, ditching the pieces that are too small. Then, I used my Cricut to cut out some lettering which I adhered to some CTMH Paper Envelopes. To get then to fit just right in my Kallax I turned each envelope on their side. Here are some of the themes I used for sorting…
Christmas | Winter | Valentine’s | Spring | Easter | Baby
Birthday | Summer | Halloween | Autumn | Masculine | Neutral
Did you notice that I have 12 categories? My Plan is to start using up my scraps, to the best of my ability, by pulling out an Envelope each month and making a few random projects with them. I can also take an envelope with me to any of my local events and let my customers pick through them as we make a project together. The possibilities are pretty endless.
What are some other themes you can think of for sorting scraps? Perhaps by color/shades? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
