Hello! Here's our monthly feature. We hope to share tips, tool & techniques that have caught our eye, things we have Pinned, and things we have tried. These are probably not going to change your life(!) but might make it a bit easier...
How to Organise your Paper Stash:
If like me you have a variety of paper and card that you have acquired through the years, it can get a bit difficult to sort through it to find what you want (especially if you save every scrap of tissue paper, card from packages etc, and its not even all in one place!!). Here's one solution - an A3 Display Book!
I got this one from Amazon and it was only £4.38. It has 20 pockets and as you can see both sides that means there are 40 sides.
And there you have it!
My "acquired" wallpaper samples are stored in a bin in my craft room:
I need to do something different for all of my patterned papers but I'm not sure what yet... Any ideas?

What a simple idea, I really like it. And I think I actually have an A3 display book thrown in with my paper stash!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Joanna! You should definitely give it a try! xxDelete
Super nice idea. I use this when I travel, which is a lot. I do something simular with my patterns too. At home I have a file box divided by season, then I sort the papers by activities & holidays for that season. Now do you have any ideas for stickers? Have a blessed day :O)ReplyDelete
Thanks Sherri, dividing by season etc is a genius idea! Maybe a smaller A4 display book for stickers? xxDelete
You've given me a good idea - this might make it easier for me to put my recipes in order too! CheersReplyDelete
Thanks Carole! Great idea to use it for recipes too! xxDelete
Great idea! I do something similar but in a file drawer for all my paper scraps.ReplyDelete
I would LOVE to have enough drawer space! Or space for drawers(!!)Delete
