Are you a Scrapbook “Paper Junkie”?
The best way to sort, store and organize your paper is by following a basic system. If you’re familiar with the 4 Section System for Supply Organization
, then the 3 Section System for Paper Organization will sound familiar.
The three section system consists of sorting your papers by categories. There are 3 Major Categories for Paper:
- Themes A-Z
- The Calendar Year
- The Rainbow
Section 1 – Themes A-Z
These are the subjects you scrapbook about organized alphabetically.
Animals, Baby, Beach, Sports, Vacation, etc…
Section 2 – The Calendar Year
Group all of you holiday and seasonal materials together. Use dividers to indicate the change in month or season.
Section 3 – The Rainbow
This is where you store all of your solid colored papers grouped together by color. You can pull out your color wheel or just go with the old stand by ROY G BIV – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
Once you’ve got your papers sorted, put them into the Paper Junkie Storage Boxes. Label the boxes to match the 3 Section System. Now when you’re ready to scrap a particular theme or holiday, i.e. Christmas, you don’t have dig through layers of papers. You just pull to Christmas?December box off your shelf and set on your desk. You’ll be able to thumb through your papers quickly and easily. You can also take the full box with you if you head off to a crop or a class to work on Christmas – Simple.
The Paper Junkie boxes in this Rainbow section have been laid over onto their backs. This makes it really easy to pull your papers straight out of the box.. The Theme Section is labeled below.
