Hi there, Today it’s Noelle bringing you another product review. If you read our blog regularly, you might remember from this post a couple weeks ago that Advantus Corp. has generously sent me a box of products to review. Advantus is a company that owns many brands; including Cropper Hopper. I have reviewed other Cropper Hopper items in the past; because they are one of the leading brands when it comes to craft storage products. Today, I am reviewing the Paper Organizer.
I normally store my 12″ themed papers/items in giant slider bags and hang from a pant hanger. All the pant hangers hang on a curtain rod in my craft room. And my solid and/or “neutral” themed (polka dots, stripes, etc.) papers go into my Cropper Hopper paper pouches. But lately I have noticed a problem with my giant slider bags, particularly the ones that are very full. Since there’s no boxiness to the corners of the bag, sometimes the papers on the outsides of the stacks will end up getting their corners mangled or bent.
I have a lot of Christmas papers in particular. I love Christmas pages and normally end up doing at least 10 Christmas pages for every year, sometimes even more. I also make my own holiday cards, so all this paper does get used. A couple moths ago I was shopping at Tuesday Morning, and they had big packs of Graphic 45 holiday papers for 3.99 a piece. So, my amount of Christmas papers quickly doubled and suddenly the bag is just jammed way too full! So, I decided this paper organizer would be a great place to stash all my Christmas papers.
The organizer comes in a flat package, and you fold it together with simple tabs. The handle is already attached. I liked that it would actually be easy to take it apart again, especially if you wanted to flip through all the papers easily or if you lost something small in the bottom. It’s also sturdy enough that the corners of your papers won’t get bent, yea!
First things first, I cleaned out the old bag. It’s amazing how much trash you find when you clean things out, don’t you think? It’s always good to sort things before you move them to a new container, so I did that next, and and laid out all my papers on my table.
Then I just neatly stacked them and popped them into the container. The handle is great, very sturdy and pushes down flat if you wanted to use this by your other vertical storage. there is also a label on the top, right under the handle. The handle is clear so you can read the label right through the handle. This product is called the Paper Organizer.
Thanks again to Kathleen from Advantus for sending me such great things to try out and share with you.
Have an amazing day!
