I thought I would post another organizational tip that I have been using the past few months that I find REALLY helpful.
I had a hard time keeping track of and organizing my leftovers, rejects, extras, etc. from projects. I decided to keep them all in one place instead of being scattered all over my craft supplies. I bought these 2 recipe card holders at Michaels for $3.00 each. (Note: yesterday at my Michaels store they were on clearance at 60% off!) These are the larger size ones, 6 1/2 wide, 5 1/2 high, 4 1/8 depth. I used the regular size ones for a while, but they were not quite tall enough for the bases so the top didn't close all the way.
This has made a big difference in knowing what I already have when I do a project, saving me time and using things up. It also makes cleaning up after a project easier, I know exactly where to put things. I keep these boxes right on my craft desk at my fingertips.
***This is the box with all card bases in it. Some of these I had made and didn't use, and some I made extras of to have on hand.
