Welcome to Week #4 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour! Did you miss last week’s topic? I highlighted something called Paper Sleeves for storing my most current Patterned Paper Scraps. Be sure to check it out!
This week, I want to focus on storage for my Cardstocks…
Week 4: 12″ x 12″ Paper Holders
While this isn’t the best photo, it shows you exactly how I store my current Close To My Heart Cardstocks – Alphabetically by color.
I picked up these great 12″ x 12″ Paper Holders from Stamp ‘n Storage and it’s probably one of the best investments I’ve ever made when it comes to Paper Crafting Organization. While these units aren’t exactly cheap, they are the perfect way to organize my papers beautifully in my iKea Kallax.
Each cube holds 15 colors of cardstock. However, there is a 12-slot option available…but why? I also chose to add on the chipboard Paper Holder Label System. This way I could easily label my cardstock colors so that everything looks well organized and nice.
When it comes to Close To My Heart’s amazing 40+ Cardstock palette, I needed a total of 3 cubes. However, if using the Paper Holder Label System, you could easily stack 2-3 Cardstock colors in one slot and get away with 2 cubes…just an idea.
You can also paint the cubes to match the decor in your house! Currently, this isn’t something I’m interested in doing. Especially since I don’t want to have to repaint them as the decor in my craft room changes.
Should I make a large investment?
No-one says you have to buy everything you need all in one sitting. So my suggestion is to try purchasing just one of these cubes and use it to store any papers you are currently working with. For example, there are two main Paper Packs in every Close To My Heart Seasonal Idea book. Use a single storage cube to store the coordinating colors of cardstock for easy access while crafting. Then, if you decide you like it, step up and invest in what you need.
Have any questions so far? Please be sure to leave your questions in the comment section below. I’d also love to know how you are currently storing your favorite Cardstock colors!
Have a great week!
