Organizing Tips & Tricks – Paper Scraps

Organizing Tips & Tricks – Paper Scraps
Organizing and storage ideas, and solutions for storing, locating and using your scraps!

At the moment I am crafting in a temporary space and I don’t have room for all my usual furniture, which includes my little Bisley drawer unit where I keep my scraps.

I’m just using a storage box to keep them in, and since I am too lazy to rummage through it, it’s overflowing with scraps I should be using instead of cutting into new sheets!

So my tip for today is to get your scraps organised!

You’ll definitely find that if you organise your scraps by colour you will use them much more often.

This Bisley drawer unit is the one I use.

As you can see, for each colour I have both a plain, and a polka-dot labelled drawer.

I keep plain sheets in one drawer and patterned paper in the other – as a result I can really quickly find a piece of paper or cardstock for matting, die-cutting or stamping without cutting into a precious new sheet!

If you don’t have space for a drawer unit, there are other options for keeping your scraps organised.
