Today, I’m sharing with you my Paper Scrap Storage Tips! A few of you have asked me about this and how to use up scraps so I hope you will find this useful or inspirational to store and use up your scraps! I do have to say this has changed for me over the years many times before I got to this point. I have found this to be the best….although isn’t that how we always feel till the next idea comes along! 🙂
Okay so this is my cardstock paper storage. I got these from Stampin’ Storage and I love them! They are super sturdy and each color is in an individual spot. Click here to check them out and get 10% off! In the past, I had all the colors from one family lumped together and it was much harder to see and I would run out of a color and not know it because the stack still looked big. This way I can see it all so much easier!
Then in each slot above the full sheets of cardstock, I have a cellophane bag with all of the scraps for that color. I love having it right there with the full sheets because it makes me use that up first. Also, it’s super easy to grab that and just pull the whole bag out to see what options I have! Before I had the scraps in bags but off to the side in a box and there were many times I didn’t even look there first. Having it front and center really helps!
Next up is my specialty paper storage. These are just 12″ x 12″ plastic drawers. I love having each category in it’s own drawer because it’s so much easier to find. I also don’t have to rifle through all of it to find a piece so there is less beat up corner or glitter everywhere. Also, if you can’t tell……I love my label maker! 🙂
Again, I have a baggie of scraps at the top of each drawer with the little pieces from each category. I think it works fabulous for the foil and glimmer papers. As for the designer paper…….I’m just not the best at using up scraps, not going to lie. I do have lots of great ideas for scraps like this card style!!!
