Craft Storage Ideas: Solutions Round-Up – 15 Awesome Craft Storage Tools From Your Kitchen Craft storage made easy with items you may already own!
It’s Amanda here and I’m going to share with you some really amazing storage solutions that could be hiding right in your own home, items you may never have thought of using to house your crafting supplies.
As a crafters we’re always on the lookout for the best way to store all our crafting supplies in our spaces.
There are so many products on the market that are made just for craft storage, but some of those solutions can get pretty pricey.
So today I would like to share with you some hidden gems that might be in your kitchen that you could use to store some of your stash.
First up is a little bit of upcycling.
These old baby food jars were cleaned out and hung up with magnets under a cabinet to provide color coordinated button storage. Genius I say!
Not to mention mostly free since you would be re-using something that normally goes in the trash.
Feel like you need to give your creative space a major makeover these days? If you’re like me, there are days when you find yourself feeling like one big disorganized mess! I was thinking the other day that organizing my craft room is probably a bit like a teacher organizing a classroom! Perhaps I could find some ideas for storage and organization in school furniture! Here are a few of the things that I found over at Today’s Classroom:
Like many scrapbookers, I’m a kit club subscriber. I receive monthly kits from 2 different clubs and the product can really pile up sometimes, especially if I’ve purchase extra add-on kits. While I have a system to store the kits once I’ve used them, how to manage the current/new kits was always a problem. I needed a container that had a surface that was big enough to hold the paper flat and tall enough to accommodate the irregular packaging of the embellishments. I also wanted to be able to see the product and have easy access to it.
Display Dynamics Perfect Paper Stackable Trays fit the bill for my storage need. Designed to hold the paper in scrapbooking stores, the clear stacking trays are clean, compact and strong. The tray’s interior measures 12.25″ x 12.25″ x 2” high so paper (even the kind with the extra border and big flat sticker sheets) lies flat. Each tray exterior measures approximately 13.25″ x 13″ x 2” high. When stacked, the space between levels is tall enough to accommodate thicker items. Here you can see materials from 2 different kits easily stored on top of each other with room to spare. (I used the lipped trays here, which can be set on an angle with a special adapter piece. The trays can also be purchased without a lip.)
I also use these trays to hold pending projects (like my September list project on the bottom) and paper collections that I need to keep separate from my stash. And my favorite feature of all; they fit perfectly into an Expedit cubicle!
According to the manufacturer, they can even be used vertically. I definitely plan to add more of these and could easily fit six of them in that space.
