Azar 900945-CLR Pegboard Room Organizer, Clear Frosted Pegboard
Plain and simple pegboard organizer for tools and small craft items.
Amazon reviewer NYC Lady 2010 says, "I searched the web for a long time trying to find an organizer for my scrap book stuff and also for my kids arts and craft projects. I finally found it from this company called Azar and it is awesome. It is made very well and I love that I can move around the accessories to make a custom organizer for really great price."
Tips for Crafters' Storage
Not just for scrapbookers!
1. Make use of walls. Put up shallow shelving, wall organizers, hooks and even spice racks. Look for ideas in kitchen storage - sometimes they can be adapted. It's much easier to reach for an item than to rummage around in a drawer. Besides your stuff looks great on display and just gazing at your supplies will make you feel in the mood for creating.
2. Glass is good. So are clear plastic and acrylic containers. Being able to see the contents of containers makes it a lot easier to find what you want right when you want it.
3. If you use ribbon in your scrapbooking, then consider a ribbon organizer. Ribbon stays clean and tangle-free.
4. Select shallow-drawers over deep ones when purchasing cabinets.
5. If you like to scrap in different areas of your home or even outside, consider a purpose-made craft trolley or tote-on-wheels.
Scrapbook Storage Solutions - Go from this....
Scrapbook Paper Storage
Keeping your beautiful scrapbook and art papers pristine and dust-free can be a real challenge. On one hand you need to have ready access to your paper stash but on the other hand, they must be fresh and crease-free. Often my papers end up floating around under books and swamped by offcuts - you can tell I am the queen of disorganized... or perhaps just lazy!
Storex 12-Compartment Literature Organizer, Grey
Made from recycled materials and designed for classrooms, this sturdy organizer has received some rave reviews. Use it for magazines, projects and, of course, paper storage. The product info omits the fact that several units can be stacked together by removing the top section.
31" long, 10.5" tall, 13" deep
Amazon reviewer S. thomas says, "I did a lot of research trying to find the perfect paper/catalog sorter and this one beat all the others out..The price is excellent for this sturdy entirely plastic (not paper like many of the other simliar products). It will never warp or give out from the weight."
With a Cart
These carts are fabulous - some of them can contain all your scrapbooking supplies, particularly if you are a frugal scrapper. All right, I know there's no such animal! Okay then, you can get all your *essential* supplies onto and into one of these and then you will be able to scrapbook in the living room, or the kitchen, or the bedroom, or even on the porch on a still day.
