I’ve asked you before – what kind of crafter are you? – Always at home, always at events, a little of each…
Choosing the perfect paper storage solutions for your paper stash relies heavily on the type of crafter you are. In this brief post, I’ll review each of our products and give you my insights on which types of crafter should use them.
If you always, only, craft in your craft room at home
Open shelving and vertical boxes are the best solution for your craft space. Use our Paper Junkie Paper Storage Boxes turned on their backs, so paper is easy to pull in and out of the boxes.
Add our Paper Storage Box Dividers for easy access to your paper by theme, holiday, sentiment, or color.
These boxes are not designed to be moved around, they’re designed to be put on a shelf and left there. In the image above, you can see the boxes tipped over on their backs – this works GREAT in cube storage like the IKEA Kallax or Expedit. It also works in the cube storage that is available at the major craft retails. Keep in mind, if you’re going to tip them on their back, they must be in something that will provide support to the sides of the box.
The Paper Storage Box Dividers clearly identify themes, sentiments, seasons, holidays and colors.
If you always craft at home, these products will ensure that finding your perfect paper is fast and easy.
Do you only sometimes craft in your craft room, or do you craft at your dining room table, do you sometimes attend crops and other events?
If you move around a bit, but not always, you want to have paper storage options that can move with you, and that are easily accessible when you’re at home.
Paper Handlers are the perfect choice for you. They will sit on a shelf like the Paper Storage boxes, but the retractable handles allow you to pull them off the shelf and move them around easily.
Paper Handlers come in 3 sizes. While I generally recommend keeping all your paper together within the 4 section system, regardless of its size, I know there are many of you who prefer to keep 12×12, 8.5×11, and 6×6 paper together separately – if that makes sense. If that’s the case, try keeping all 3 sizes of Paper Handlers on a shelf.
You always craft somewhere else.
If you always need to pull out your paper, and move it around – whether that’s just carrying it to the dining room or packing it up for a weekend crop, Fab Files will be your best option.
Fab Files come in multiple sizes, for paper storage – 12×18, 12×12, 8.5×11, 6×6 & 8×8 will be your best options.
Fab Files are a little narrower in the larger sizes so they weigh a little less than Paper Handlers when you’re carrying them around.
Fab Files also have a lid with a locking tab that covers the paper for a little more safety and security when you’re moving them around. Handles on the top or sides of the Fab Files add to the ease of packing them up and putting them away.
Should you store paper in your ScrapRack?
ABSOLUTELY!!! The ScrapRack is the perfect way to keep things together you use together. I use Paper Storage Boxes to organize my large categories of paper on the shelves under my ScrapRack.
In my ScrapRack you’ll find smaller collections of paper – themes, sentiments, or holidays – if I have less than 20 sheets of paper in any category, I’ve stored those themes in SuperSized Single Storage Pages.
