Default How do you store rolls of hot foil?

I’ve got several rolls of hot foil and so far they just get piled up. Looking for organization and easy access!

I don't have a lot so may not be the best resource for you. Here's what I have going on...
I have the foils I am most likely to use this season in this little turnabout on my desk. Seeing them reminds me to use them
The rest are in the drawer next to my laminating machine and pastes. Hope this helps!

Mine are stored in an Paper Pumpkin box, in a container with the rest of my Hot Foil plates and directions. I have two boxes where one has foil and the other has the foil cutting system. I have my large scissors in the same container. This way when I am ready to foil, I just open the container and everything is there. My plates are sorted by Christmas and everything else in Ziploc bags. I really do not have too many to need more sorting. I do not use Deco foil to get them mixed up.

I bought one of these containers:
Amazon.com: Artdeco Creations Couture Creations Gopress & Foil Storage Case, Multicolor

Haven't looked to see who is still selling them.
Size is 3 1/4" wide x 6 1/4" tall x 12" long
Holds 16 rolls in their original boxes

I have quite a few of the GoPress & Foil foils in their original boxes. I keep them in a plastic drawer unit. The top drawer holds my hot foil plates and tools.

Right now just in a plastic box in their packaging banded by color groups. I saw wall hooks by Memory Keeper but I have too many colors.

This might be a money making invention if someone comes up with something.

My foils are in an IRIS case. The machine and plates are in a refrigerator bin like many store their stamps and dies in.

I saw this idea on YouTube - not sure who it was that was doing it but when I saw it I thought it would work for me and it does! I use a 24 pocket Presentation binder/book (8.5" x 11"). Mine is completely clear so I put a white sheet of copy paper in and then the pieces of foil divided by colors. Of course you have to cut them into sizes that will fit into the pockets but that wasn't an issue for the way I use it and I can store it easily right next to my bin where I store my foiling supplies.

smower just gave me an idea...what about clear shoe bags that hang on the back of your door/in your closet (or on a wall if you have the room)? Each pocket could be a color group. I guess it depends on how deep the pockets are and if they expand out.

There is one on Michael’s website that will hang over a door or on the wall that holds them nicely. Think it’s like $20. If I can find it later, will try to post it. Having trouble remembering the way I found it. It is an online only for the most part since they don’t have them in the brick and mortar stores. (I’m just fearful my cat will turn it into his own personal ladder!)

Margot, I used one of those bags for YEARS to hold my punches. What a great idea to use one for this!

Finally found it. Michael’s does not make it easy to share links! I had to take it into Pinterest first. 🤦🏼‍♀️ https://www.michaels.com/over-the-do...FBQUFBR0Z2aEhJ

I use Christmas Cookie Tins that are quite large--8 1/2" x 9" x 3 3/4" (Deep). The two that I'm using are quite full now, & I know I have another one somewhere & will have to pull that one out to use too. (I think I have Washi Tape in that one.) Once they're all three full, I will store the extra foils in a plastic container & move up in size from there for storage. I found the tins at Walmart back in the day with little cookies in them. (Red with little white & silver snowflakes on them). They fit nicely on my desk shelves, snuggled on the bottom shelf where I do my foiling, so I can access them easily!

Thanks Adriana. That's what also gave me the idea! I have seen people do that. People put all kinds of things in those.

This is where I geek out. lol

I like the look of that vinyl thing...those rolls are bigger than the foils so we could probably fit a lot in there...but I don't see how you access them? There must a zipper... Does anyone else? At 6 inches deep it could hold a lot!

Michaels also has a desktop spinner but I suspect the dowels are too big for our foils. But it is an interesting idea...if some DIYer wanted to take a spinner and attach dowels and do it in steps to get more in for the same footprint. A person would have to also make holes in the ends of the tubes for the foils in some cases. I would guess you would start with an awl and then cut the hole. Some come with no ends-just in a bag. The I-craft deco foils are 7 1/2" with the pull top and 1 1/8" diameter.

I found some triple level general spinners but then it occurred to me that one would have to "dig out" the rolls on the two lower levels vs just a lift out. But that might ok for people who have duplicate colors. The sides are also a little low though.
