Default I need 12 X 12 Paper Storage Ideas

Does anyone have any 12 X 12 paper storage ideas? I have A LOT of paper and had taken the time to label storage containers with the name of the designer/company, but I find it difficult to find the exact paper I am looking for or to match colors.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

I love the cubes from Michaels. I paired them with 12 x 12 craft keepers. Like so:

I could be more organized if I put things in categories and such but I can find things a lot more easily than with my old storage. My old 12 x 12 storage was these recycled priority mail boxes shown in pink and green here (the rest sucks too, as you can see). The boxes would fall over if I didn't have something on both sides of them.

When I looked at that link before, I could have sworn it led to your blog post about storage. Now it leads to the company's website. Weird. I would have thought the admins would prefer you linking to your own blog rather than a commercial site. I can't figure out the rules here since they got so picky.

Are you able to easily see what you have that way?

I find my problem is that I am not able to easily grab what I am looking for or find what I need and I need suggetions on how to get that organized or find ways to get that easily creative.

Gale, I adore the pretty hat boxes on top of your org unit. It all looks like a very orderly, welcoming space. (Mine looks more like your "before" picture.)

thanks. I got those from hobby lobby and covered them with wrapping paper. It took a long time! And now some of the ribbon is coming loose so I need to figure out a better adhesive for it.

Me too Gale! It DID go to my blog. Admin changed it to the company's website for some reason. My post shows how I organize my paper too. It seems I am the only one that ever gets edited by admin! Ugh!!!!!!!!! Go to my blog in my link below and in the search box put "Scrap 'n Cube Paper Tower." That will get you the post. So sorry it has to be difficult here!

Wait a minute. Do you mean to tell me they edited your post and did not notify you and let you know why?? Why in the heck would they not let people know these things?? So if you didn't look at the post again, didn't realize they changed it, didn't know WHY they changed it, and posted the same thing in a different thread, you'd then be a "multiple offender"?? That makes no sense whatsoever (plus it's rude).

Yes, that's what happened. This admin person never notifies me and has done this multiple times to me yet other threads by other people remain untouched.

A reminder - our volunteers on this site are members, and as such, cannot be made the subject of a negative post, per our site posting rules.

That being said, posts are edited and removed per our site posting rules many times each day.


Our goal is to notify each person when this is done, however, if someone does the same thing multiple times, they are only notified once, along with other circumstances that would make it unnecessary.


Please contact me or the moderators with questions. Thanks!

I think I'd like a clearer explanation of the actual posting rules. It seems confusing when some are edited while others are not. I would love to know why a blog post was removed and a store site put in its place.

I would never discuss an individual action with the community

The site posting rules are fairly straightforward, but if you have questions on a specific rule, feel free to PM me. Thanks!
