Default paper storage

I have a lot of paper. I am going to stack the paper in a vertical storage unit that I have. I need ideas what to do with all of my scrap paper and half sheets? Please let me know what you all do. I am trying very hard to clean up my stamping corner.

I keep all card front sizes and smaller in a small drawer unit in color families. Any scraps larger I have in a accordian portfolio type holder that zips closed. I love my vertical storage - everything is right at hand.

I have cropper hopper folders. I have one for each color family, neutrals, and pattern paper. I put my scraps in these and keep them closer to me than my full size paper, that way I am more inclined to use it up.

I do the same as Jeanette. The pocket folders are the perfect size for scraps. I'm very diligent about using my scraps.

I am using a neat idea I got at a stamping event. I have put all my paper (if it is less than 3 sheets) into clear page protectors in a 3 ring binder. If I cut a piece in half it goes back into the sleeve. Any paper I have whole pkgs of, I note that on the protector, then store the balance in a drawer (flat) I don't have alot of paper, it took about an hour to organize...and what a difference it has made. I am not very organized, so this is a huge step for me...

My paper is stored in stacked paper trays, 1 tray per color. Scraps are put in cello bags on top of the full-sized sheets. The corresponding ink pad is also in the paper tray...when I decide on a color scheme, the inkpad, scraps and the necessary sized sheet of paper get pulled at the same time.

I use Cropper Hopper vertical paper holders for card stock and patterned papers. I keep my larger scraps in with my paper. However, stuff that is less than 12" long or about 1/3 sheet of 12x12" gets put into a Generations Craft Keeper.

I used to sort in page protectors by color (in a 3-ring notebook), but stopped doing that b/k I realized the scraps are already color-coordinated from my project; I find it easier to do a card or other project with the color-coordinated papers.

HTH!

I've found that a file cabinet works best for me! I sort by colors (not alphabetical order since I'm not much for having to think) and its so easy to just pull the file I need, scoot over to my desk and find the perfect piece (or pieces) for a project. Sorting your scraps might seem tedious, but in the end you won't believe how easy it makes things!!!
