Organize Your Craft Supplies
You could easily spend a small fortune organizing your craft supplies. But why bother? For $10 – $20 you can create your own, highly efficient storage system. It’s simple.
Purchase clear, stackable storage boxes with lids from the dollar store. Get about ten of these and label them with a permanent marker or a pretty label. These will be the basis of your storage system.
Put small objects of the same type in heavy duty resealable plastic storage bags. Then put the storage bags in the boxes. The types of objects that go in the storage bags are bits of fibers, buttons, small packages of Fimo, eyelets, etc.
Use clean tin cans for storing markers, colored pencils, scissors, etc. If your want to, you can make the cans nicer by covering them with patterned scrapbook paper.
Get a couple of brag book type albums from the dollar store. These can be used to store stickers and die cuts.
Supplies that are too large to fit into storage bags or cans can go directly into your plastic boxes.
Anything too large to fit directly into your plastic boxes can go into a cardboard storage box. Just be sure to label the outside.
That’s it. Didn’t I tell you it was simple?
