Storage Rolling Cart
Looking for a way to house most of your scrapbook supplies at one place? Rolling carts can help you keep your scrapbook supplies well organized, in one place. And with rollers, you can wheel them around the house especially if you don’t have a fixed place to do your scrapbooking.
Some of these organizer carts are big enough to hold your 12″x12″ scrapbook paper but do check out the the product dimensions for confirmation.
You can put labels on the drawers to help you find your supplies faster. On the other hand, the frosted or translucent drawers usually mean you can have a good idea of what’s stored within.
With a rolling cart organizer, you can have a vertical, functional scrapbook storage place where you can store all your scrapbooking supplies readily, great for small spaces.
Stackable Paper Trays
If you’ve been scrapbooking for sometime, you’ll quickly realize that your 12 x 12″ papers are stacking up high. You probably need a way to store and protect your scrapbook paper from being bent and damaged.
Stackable paper trays is the answer. Since these units are expandable, you can always add on more units as you filled up your current units. With this clear paper storage device, you can easily view the papers you have on hand.
Stackable trays are prefect as it allows the papers to lay flat. Because if you were to store scrapbook paper in a vertical hanging file, the paper might bow unless you compressed them at both sides.
Divided Compartment Boxes
Now that you have your papers stored safely, let’s look at how to store your tiny/small embellishments like brads, buttons, snaps, etc. Are your present scrapbooking supplies all over the place and you’re having a frustrating time retrieving whatever that you need?
Look into buying one or several divided compartment boxes, depending on the amount of supplies you have. These plastic boxes are usually cheap. You can get them at your local scrapbook stores, craft stores or even online stores.
Just make sure each box comes with multiple compartments or drawers to store your various embellishments. Compartment boxes can come in the lay-flat or tower type units.
To maximize space, go vertical with the tower type or those lay-flat types that are stackable.
