1- Keep items you use most often within easy reach -
I made this can caddy to store items I use all the time - glue sticks, scissors, craft knife, pens, screw drivers, wire cutters, etc.
I also have open storage so I can just grab things like tape, glue, etc.
the items I use most are right behind where I usually
stand on the middle or bottom shelf
2- Label all containers so you know what's inside-
most items fit in containers I already had but for some things
I had to find a box then I covered it in pretty paper. I made
matching labels for all containers
3-Store like items together-
All my ribbon is in a drawer. I went through all my ribbon and wrapped it around cardboard squares which really helped save space,
I put all my washi and decorative tape in a drawer
using a kitchen utensil tray to help contain items,
all my punches are in one drawer,
I made this storage shelf out of foam core for all my stampin up inks,
Cricut Cartridges are right above my machine,
all my paint is in a floral tin...
I unmounted all my wood mount stamps ( saves a ton of space)
and store them in two 3-ring binders,
embossing folders in box next to sizzix,
4- Add special items that you enjoy looking at-
I hope I have inspired you to organize your craft room and to make your surroundings a place that inspires you and stimulates creativity - happy crafting.
