Hello crafty friends! This is Suzanne with a look at Cricut cartridge storage solutions today. There are so many options out there to neatly store your overflowing stock of cartridges. Some of those solutions are ready-to-go binders and bins specifically made for the cartridges. However, if you are looking for a little Do-It-Yourself project, or to save some money on storage, I have some crafty resources for you that I came across while searching the web. Hopefully you will get some inspiration from a couple of them to make your own storage!
The first storage solution utilizes two boxes: one for the cartridges and an additional box for the manuals. For the cartridges, empty baby food containers were hot glued together to fit perfectly inside the box! Each container holds 4 Cricut cartridges, for ample storage. The manuals are stored separately and are categorized by alphabet.
For clear container storage, this ingenious solution uses clear boxes meant for ribbon, and some pre-cut and fit plastic canvas. The cartridges and tools are stored in one box, and the bulky manuals are stored in another.
This clear storage box holds small, labeled containers with the name of each Cricut cartridge. This system would make it so easy to return your cartridges to the proper spot for maximum organization!
These Cricut items are individually sealed in clear zipper bags and then all stored inside of an acrylic container meant for sweaters! With the clear storage and labels, this is also an easy way to stay organized.
So, what about the original Cricut boxes? From the majority of blogs that I have read, most crafters tend to keep the boxes that their cartridges come in and store them elsewhere. Or, there is always the option of storing the boxes and cartridges in the same area. If you notice in the picture below, the boxes are all neatly lined up on the shelf, but there is a small container of cartridges on the bottom shelf that have been re-stored. Perhaps these are the most used cartridges that need to be accessed quickly and efficiently, or taken to on-the-go crops.
Although these are all great Cricut cartridge storage options, the trick is finding a solution that works for you. Depending on how many cartridges you own, the choice may be clear!
