How do you organize your paper stash?
Figuring out the best place and way to store paper has always been a problem for me, so I'd love to hear how you guys deal with it!
I have envelopes within folders. Bits of paper that are pretty small go into big envelopes, then the envelopes get labeled something like "Christmas Card Bits" then I put the envelopes into a expanding file folders also called an accordion file folder. Also in the folder are bigger pieces of paper arranged by type, color or theme. I do the same thing for my stickers and other flat scrap-booking type embellishments. Paper that comes in a stack bound together (like big scrap-booking stacks) I keep together and right next to the file folders on the shelf.
I was thinking about how I store paper, and how my file folders are so big its really hard to close them, there must be a fun way to display them while being super organized. So I went searching on Pinterest, and I found this link
And I love it! I don't think I have the self space for it just now, but when I set up my new craft room after my big move in December, I will totally be incorporating this system for organizing paper. I bet you have the space for it though lol.
I store mine digitally and print it off when I need it. Scraps that are usable go into a box.
In my shoes boxes I've decorated with lots of little natural things of like shells/leaves.
If it's stuff like bills I put it in this big ikea storage box and forget about the drama :/
i like a mix of storage boxes for little bits and bobs, and an expandable folder for sheets of paper and scraps. split into colours or themes. the expandable folder has the added advantage of being able to store lots in a little space.
I use old school folders and cereal boxes to store my paper and scraps in.
In 2 bulging ringbinders filled with plastic sleeves. I keep other small things like feathers and pressed flowers in with them as well, it seems to work pretty well for me as long as the folders are kept the correct way up!
