It is a struggle we all have. Craft room Paper Organization. How do we store all our paper so that we can easily access it, and see what we have? Below is what I have decided to do and so far I am really happy with the results!
At first I just used these Paper Envelopes from Close to My Heart. They hold 12×12 paper, and they are just $10.95 for a 3 pack. They are made of a durable, see through plastic that protects my paper. Each time I open a new paper pack, I get my label maker out and label my sleeve. So anything I have for this collection would go into this envelope. Paper pack, compliments, picture my life cards, and coordinating card stock for example.
I would store these sleeves on a shelve and thumb through them when I needed something. The problem came when I accumulated more packs, than I had room for on the shelf. They started getting smooshed in and hard to find. I needed a better option.
I had an idea! Pant hangers with clips!! In my craft room I have a closet and the bar for hanging things was empty! I order 3 boxes of these clip hangers (#sponsored affiliate link) from Amazon. Each box contains 30 hangers.
I hung each pack / envelope with a hanger and placed them in alphabetical order in my closet. Now I can browse through them easily and find exactly what I am looking for.
Doesn’t this look much easier to sort through and find what you are looking for? I am super excited about this!! I even made my kids come into my craft room to see when they were over last night!! Let us know if you try it out too and what your thoughts are.
