ScrapRack Spinder Placement will vary by crafter.
There are many factors that contribute to how you place your Spinders on your ScrapRack(s).
- Number of Spinders
- Fullness of Spinder, both number of pages, and number of items in the page
- Weight of items in each pocket
- Thickness of items in each pocket
Here are a few suggestions for how you might place Spinders on your ScrapRack.
My suggestion is that you try moving your Spinders into a few of these configurations until you find the positioning that works best for your supplies.
You may need to mix and match – using some of each. In general, I believe the “slanted & staggered” configuration is the most popular.
If you’re just getting started, and you only have a few Spinders on your ScrapRack, separating them out evenly will be a good option.
If your Spinders are quite heavy, slanting them will help.
Staggering and/or overlapping the rings on your Spinders will help to create a more solid “base” for your pages – like the back/spine of a book. The pages will support each other.
Overlapped rings, staggered up and down can be used straight up and down on your base. This is usually better for lighter weight or less full pages.
Overlapped rings, staggered and slanted can be a good solution for heavier pages.
Less Spinders spread further apart might look like this.
7 Spinders closer together, staggered and slightly slanted might look like this.
Try moving your Spinders around until you get the desired result. Remember, there is no “one size fits all” solution because each crafter is storing a different variety of products.
One other thing – check to be sure your ScrapRack is set up correct – it’s very common for ScrapRacks to be set up on their backs – which can be a big problem in regard to page sag. Click here to learn how to properly set up your ScrapRack base.
