Recollections Craft Accessory Organizer: Product Highlight

Hello fellow crafters! It’s Cicily the Pink Dalmatian Scrapper with today’s product highlight. I always enjoy seeing everyone’s variation on the Recollections Craft Accessory Organizer, I even have one myself. So I thought I would share what some fellow crafters have done with the product to personalize it for their accessory needs.

My mom pointed out to me that her latest wall mounted organizer was slightly different then mine and when I went online to get this picture, sure enough one of the shelves is missing and there’s no longer bead-board in the back. So you may notice that difference between some rooms. I wanted to point that out in case someone rushed out to M’s and was disappointed with the change. The Recollections Craft Accessory Organizer is a wall mounted shelving unit that has multiple shelves & cubbies to organize your craft goodies. The wall mount keeps everything off your crafting space & the minimal depth means items aren’t buried and lost in the back.

This is my Embellishment organizer. Recollections does make containers to fit in the cubbies, however I didn’t care so much for the price or the fact that they were plastic. I measured the openings and found jars and glass containers  from Walmart and filled them with my goodies! I also added a metal strip to the bottom and usuing magnets hang Stickles & stamping tools.

Here’s one that went opposite from me and used it exclusively for ribbon.

 

 Have a small crafting space? Here is one used in a closet!

I love all the color &  decorated containers.

Have you seen CSI’s very own Dorris Weeaks craft room? She has 3 of the organizers! Click on the picture to go to a CSI tour of her room.

Here’s a closeup of the 2 she uses for stamp display/storage and how she modified the shelving to hold more. Click on the picture to go to the tutorial on how she did this.

There are so many options and ways to organize your embellishments within the Organizer. These are just a few ideas. Let us know if you have a unique way to use your Recollections Craft Accessory Organizer.

  1. Awww! Thanks for the “shout out,” Cicily! I LOVE seeing how others are using the same products I own…in case I “need” to tweak the way I’m currently using mine – ha ha! Great job rounding up all these ideas! ~ Doris

    • You’re welcome Doris. I have heard several comments that if the cubbies were only smaller it would be perfect for stamps so I had to show how you made that possible!

  2. Hi! What an awesome blog!! :D
    And oh, I would LOVE to own one of these organizers! So many awesome ideas! But have no idea where to get it here from Norway….!
    By the way; There is no link on the picture from Doris (csi)!

    Where can I find the organizers. I’ve been looking everywhere

    • Betty Felthaus says:

      CAROL,
      Michaels Crafts has a big supply of organizers. The “Recollections storge bins” are also good.
      I would also say to try Ebay. Lots of storage organization stuff on there too.
