Hello there, a while back I asked if you would like to see more storage videos from me. One of the top requests was to show I store my cardstock and paper. Another big question was how I store my scraps of said products. I used to have a big box with them all in but I found that I just didn't use them and went straight for the paper pad, 12x12" or A4 sheet. I hated wasting them but that was just how my mind works.
So what I decided to do was store my scraps with the particular size of cardstock/paper. This works so much better for me. I will use this first before cutting onto a new sheet. With the exception of 6x6 patterned papers, I do not keep the little scraps; I just recycle them as I know that I will not end up using them. I know that is bad for a crafter to say but I am trying really hard not to hoard!
Here is the side of my wall that doesn't have my desks on (since my craft room is so small I really only have two useable walls)
I have my shelving unit from Ikea (sadly no longer sold), my 6x6" paper pads are in photo storage boxes from Cropper Hopper. I have managed to purge most of my paper pads recently which I am so happy with and I now only have four boxes full (I did have 6!) Here is a little video showing my 6x6" storage a little closer ...
On the top shelf I store my A4/11x8½" cardstock/paper in magazine files from Muji. I find it easy to see what I am looking for but I think it all looks neat. I love how the PTI cardstock looks - so pretty! Here is a quick video showing you close up ...
I then have my 12x12" paper and cardstock in the unit from The Best Organiser/Stackables which is next to the shelving unit. I got mine from Storage 4 Crafts. I love it! It holds it all neatly and in whatever order I want. I have my cardstock at the top and then patterned paper below. I keep larger scraps of this cardstock/paper here too. Here is a little video showing close up what it is like ..
Last but not least, remember I said I recycle small scraps? Well I have two little baskets on the top of my shelving unit that I put the scraps in. These get emptied weekly but if there is just a small piece of cardstock I need, I will look in here first!
Not the prettiest but is functional!
