Thumbs up Oh gosh, this is a great idea!

@gregzgurl


I really like the way you organize your dies. I don't have dies or a cutter yet, but both are coming in early 2020. (new to the scene in general). I've been wondering how to deal with these items, and your way is awesome. I've got tons of storage options for crafting materials, but keeping them organized, that's going to be interesting.


Question: Who / Where is your source for those nifty zip lock bags? I'd buy a huge box of those if I could find a source that sells a multi-size box. I use zip lock bags for all sorts of other inventory management, but never have the right sizes. Also, in regards to your reference to "Close To My Heart stamp/paper envelopes", is that a brand, or a seller?


Thank you for sharing

All of the bags that I'm using are those that my Unity stamps came in. You can buy packs of 150 in different sizes at Hobby Lobby:

Michael's, JoAnn, and Walmart have similar, also. I don't like "floppy" bags, so if I need to shorten one, I just fold the excess to the back and secure it with packing tape.

Close to My Heart is a stamp company and those envelopes are what they package their stamp sets in. They also sell them empty, though:

I’m currently reorganising my craft room. I’m seeking tips on how to store my ribbon...I’ve seen wall holders but I don’t really have a lot of wall space. Any other ideas?

Roughly how much ribbon do you have? Solutions could well vary for 20 rolls versus 2000.

Best Craft has a system that can be stacked or tucked into drawers, not just hung. Ribbon is removed from cardboard holders and a spooler tool is used to roll ribbon into much smaller rolls that fit into a plastic tube and a case.
Search results for: 'Ribbon'

One video that shows how it works, though does not show the box the containers can fit into, but there are other videos to be found:

The owners are very nice - one always has a booth at Stamp & SB Expos in the U.S. - and can help figure out how many holders are needed. Other stores carry them too, like scrapbook.com

That said there are so many solutions, including hand made.

I am all about consolidating as much as possible, so NOTHING in my craft room stays in its original packaging, and that includes ribbon on a spool. I wind the ribbon around a pencil, slide it off in a coil (tightening it up, if necessary), secure it with a clear hair band (the tiny clear ones from Dollar Tree - the name brand ones are too strong and wrinkle the ribbon) and put it in the container I store them in. I started out in drawers like this:


but now I use embroidery floss organizers like this:


Since the organizer box has that one longer section, that's where the baker's twine and similar get to live. I currently have three of these standing book-style on a shelf, but I plan to purge this month and will likely be left with only one.

I condensed my ribbon stash down to 2- plastic shoe box containers which contain the basic colors: black, white, gold organza; multi color hemp cords, burlap ribbon, multi color roll of silver and blues... the rest was purged and donated. If I need a unique color I'll dye the white organza using ink pads to match the color scheme.

That's really cool! I particularly like the slots for papers.

Scrap wood and husband built it. I literally scribbled the idea onto a napkin and handed it to him "build this", about a week later, it was done...still loving this!

Not sure if it's just in my Walmart, but found some planners for $1 - going to use the smallest one for a craft supply inventory of sorts and another one to help organize my thoughts and other stuff.

Can you elaborate a little bit on how you plan to use a planner for craft supply inventory? Please and thank you. I'm just not seeing it but maybe it's a different type planner than what I am thinking....
