Top Tip Tuesday – How I Store My Card Scraps. As you may know, I have been a papercrafter for many years, but it has only been in the past few months that I have finally found a way to store my scrap card that actually works for me. Trust me when I say I have tried all sorts of systems, but this is the one that works for me.
When I was redoing my craft space a few months back I added some additional hanging file space specifically to store my card stock. My Craft Studio is a great space, not least because it gets lots of light, having double doors at both ends and roof lights, but this does mean that my card can fade if it is left in the light for too long, so drawers are a definite advantage. Because I am a Stampin’ Up! Demo I can allow myself the luxury of having a separate file for every colour, plus vellum, foil etc. This allows me to see if there are any colours I am running low of.
But, for my scrap pieces I now use a plastic wallet that is only open on the top edge, and is made of a thick plastic. As soon as I cut into a piece of card, it goes to this wallet. I often keep a couple of full sheets in there too. But what it means, and why this really works for me, is that when I am crafting, I can easily pull the wallet and see if I have a scrap of the colour I want in the right size. No more cutting into a full piece only to find that somewhere else I have a perfect sized scrap. If you don’t order full packs of all the colours you could still use this system, but keep the wallets for each colour family.
I have included a link to the wallets that I bought, but there are many other options out there, and in smaller quantities. I hope you have found this insight into my Storage system helpful. It would be great to hear how you currently store your scraps. Why not leave a comment below?
