Default Storage for 6x6 paper pads

I tried doing a search because I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm search-challenged. If there is a thread already....please direct me to it!! I have a TON of 6x6 & 4x6 pads.....mostly Basic Grey & DCWV. Right now they are stored in 2 baskets sitting on top of one of my storage units. But they are STUFFED to the point I am now piling them on top of piles. There must be an easier way......I'm obsessed with storage solutions. Please show me how you store YOUR smaller paper pads! I have an UBER small space......pretty much 1/2 of a wall of the basement....so any space saving ideas are appreciated!

The cropper hopper's paper storage comes in different sizes, 12x12, 6x6, and 8.5x11, I think.

Yep, Cropper Hopper's vertical paper holders come in the smaller sizes too, 6x6 and 9x9. Look online at JoAnns. I waited until they had a sale and/or free shipping to buy mine.

There was SOMEONE here on Splitcoast that showed us hers - it was a box where they can stand vertically. She had them filed - Basic Grey, Stampin' Up, Memory Box, etc, etc. I can't remember who it was, though! But it was brilliant!! I think she made her own box and dividers for the categories.

I have a question, though, about those wonderful little 6x6 pads... After you use a sheet or two, or part of a sheet, do you just slip the scrap in with the full sheets? That's what I do. My SU ones are getting pretty thick with scraps, but those thin pieces are sometimes all it takes to really make the difference on a card!

Y'know, I might've seen it on the demo side - I'll go ask.... I'll come back and post if I find it.

I use these smaller paper pads alot & always put the scraps back in with the rest of the papers, sometimes I will also put in scraps of solid cs that I have used & like with the printed cs.

I store mine in little plastic CD boxes from Sterlite, they do stack on top of each other! I stacked them up 5 high with no problems. They are 8"x8". I LOVE them!! I have some pics on my blog here:

6x6 storage idea

I have since added round tabs that are light colors to label each paper pad!!

EDITED TO ADD: The containers are made by Sterilite #1695. They can be found online at Ebay, Amazon.com, and other places.

I either use photoboxes, which I have the paper divided into brands [BG, DCWV, Cosmo Cricket, etc] or I will sometimes use cd holders. I prefer to use photoboxes though, I like to have everything tucked into their cubbies and labeled.

Here's my custom 6x6 paper box that I made. It's just foam core board and hot glue, covered with designer paper. Works great!
