Hello Crafty Friends,
I know many of us have this obsession with scraps and we can't seem to throw away even the tiniest piece of paper because we may need it someday. Well this post is to show how I, a paper hoarder, have taken my scrap obsession to the next level in a good and organized way.
This is only some of my current scraps:
This is my stack of drawers I purchase from Michaels that I normally keep all of my solid scraps in:
This is how they are labeled by colors:
This is how they look when I open the drawer:
Now with a little help from my Paper Trimmer, Punches, Big Shot, Cuttlebug, and numerous dies this is how they are looking now.
I have cut some down to card front sizes, strips, and use the dies and punches on the other bits and pieces. I keep the die cut/punched pieces in these zip lock pouches I found at Staples but zip lock baggies would work just fine. In fact I may have to add a few zip lock baggies to my drawers as I cut more scraps. I cut them into different shapes and sizes so at a moments notice I can easily reach in the drawer and grab what I need. Works great so far.
Only a few more drawers to complete and then I move on to my Pattern Paper which are currently in Iris totes.
Die I especially like to use are:
