May I jump in? I found a 12 x 12 cart with at least 6 drawers that I bought at Office Max a few years ago. I one I have my patterned paper which I have by color and in the other I have themes such as Christmas,winter in one, family in another and so on. I love these. I took my card stock out and have it stored another place. As for ribbon, I divided those by color and put them in ziplock bags. The spools I have in a shoebox where it is easily visible.
Works for me. Of course I have way too much stuff. Need a bigger craft room. zipper28
