Time for Craft Supply Storage

As I'm thinking about moving into my new apartment (today—woot!) I'm trying to figure out how I am going to solve the ever-consuming problem of organizing my craft supplies. It's daunting, really, so this blog post is a very self-serving one.

If you are a crafter, you know that it's painful to throw out a 3×3-inch piece of paper. I love this idea from The Crafts Dept.—store your scraps in presentation sleeves by color.

Oh to have such a manageable collection of materials! If only I had 10 sheets of scrapbook paper, 4 pairs of scissors, or four spools of twine, only then could my craft space look like this. But this photo does display one of my fave storage ideas…the jars mounted underneath a shelf. Found on Ohdeedoh.

Chez Larsson came up with this precious way to store materials. She took photos of her materials and decoupaged the print-outs to wooden Ikea drawers.
