For the last two years, I have stored all of my scrapbook paper in a single Craftologie box from JoAnn on the bottom shelf of my office bookcase.
At the beginning, I didn’t have a lot of scrapbook paper and I honestly didn’t know what to do with the paper I had. Fast forward to today and I use it a lot! My collection is quickly outgrowing this box. So, I had to rethink my storage situation.
- contained individual sections for different categories of paper
- could sit on my bookcase
- multifunctional (in case I decide to change things up later)
- visually appealing
- big enough to fit a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper (cutting paper was not an option)
After some thought, I decided to purchase two Sterilite (one of my favorite brands) wide organizers from my local WalMart. They sell them in sets of three online.
Purchasing two meant that I had six drawers to work with, so six categories. I took the scrapbook paper out of the green and white Craftologie box and sorted them.
After all of the sorting, I narrowed it down to the following six categories:
- Photography (actual scrapbook paper that looks like a photo)
I placed each set in it’s own drawer and put both units on my office bookcase.
The last order of business was labeling the front of each drawer. I purchased Martha Stewart with Avery adhesive horizontal bookplates from Staples (they did not have the exact ones online).
