Organizing Scrapbook Embellishments

One of the most fun parts of doing papercrafting is buying all the cute and new things..but before or as in my case...I end up with more than I know what to do with..

And your creative space starts to look like this..

when this happens, my creativity becomes non-existent...
I came up with an idea that works for me and wanted to share it with you...
Last winter, Northern Tool & Equipment Store opened and hubby wanted to check the place out..
so while he was looking at his stuff...I walked around and found some great storage cabinets...

I ended up getting two of different cabinets...this one is big and amazing
and holds so many things..and there's lots of empty drawers.....

Organizing many of my things in this cabinet, really helps keep things off the table top..

These cabinets were less expensive than going to a craft store..and there were
so many sizes to pick from..

I love the idea of being able to see inside each drawer to get what I need
without searching all over the place..

This is the other one I got, I spray painted it white to get rid of the gray
and it really turned out nice..
(I need to spray paint that other one before the weather turns cold.)

This bin holds more of my flowers, pearls, brads & embellishments..

I like having my stuff nearby....

But I really like having a space thats clear of clutter...
wonder how long it'll last?!?

I've been saving some toilet paper rolls for another
TP mini album...have you made one of these?
Their super cute and because their small - doesn't take
much time or product to make them cute!

I'm linking to these parties....

Your space looks great. I was just checking out those shelves this weekend, but I didn't get any. I challenged myself to finish a scrapbook first.

I am with you about organizing and working. I HATE a mess all piled up.
Those containers are perfect with all your goodies

What a great solution to all the stuff that crafting brings with it. I like that they're clear, too. I find I need to see my stuff to remember to use it. Love this idea! Patty

I am getting ready to do a major craft room overhaul, those little drawers would be perfect. Where did you find them?
I also love the cupcake stand as an organizer. That would be great for a craft fair, too.
I followed you over from Terrific Under Ten Tuesdays.

This is a FABULOUS idea!! I have tons of these little dollar store embellishment organizers in a stack and it is such a pain to go through them! This doesn't take much space, either! You can bet I'll be doing this!
Thanks for sharing!

Great idea! I have one of those that I purchased at Lowes, but it is quite small. I just store mostly brads & eyelits in it. I just finished setting up a new crafting/sewing room in our new home. I planned this room for months & I'm so happy with it. I think it's going to be easy to keep clean; I hope, anyway. Come take a peek when you have a minute -- I just posted about it today.
