I am a bit OCD when it comes to organization and my craft room. By far, I get the most readers for my organization post I did forever ago now. I wanted to keep you updated with new things. I have always had a HUGE problem with paper scraps. Toss them? Keep them? If you do keep them, how will I find them to actually use them again. I was so sick and tired of cutting into a piece of card stock only to find a day later I had like 4 small scraps that would have worked fine.
Enter my method for storing scraps. I have using this system almost since I did my big organization post. After I had all of the initial organization out of the way, I began to tackle the smaller (or larger in my case) problems that I couldn't find an easy solution for.
Let me show you.
Let me pull one out so that you can see how this is so useful to me.
What makes this system work so well is that I can see at a glance what scraps I have available. If I need to cut a small butterfly, I can size it up before I reach in. I can also see at a glance if I have a piece that would work for a card base or not. It helps me to actually USE my scraps and keeps them under control.
I hope you can glean something from my system. Isn't that what makes this so fun? Take a bit of what I do, add it something else, mixed with your own thoughts and you can come up with an amazing solution that really works well for you.
