Craft Room Embellishments Storage and Organization Tips
Hello, Friends! Just as I promised, I’m here to share my Craft Room Embellishments Storage and Organization Tips with you. This is the 3rd installment in our Craft Room Organization Series. If you missed out on the previous three videos, here are the links to Ribbon Tips , Paper TIps, and Die Cutting Storage Solutions.
Craft room organization and storage is a very personal thing. You might already a system that works perfectly for you. (Please share your ideas in the comment section so we can all benefit!) But if you feel like you are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin, I think you will find some tips and ideas that will help you organize your buttons, beads, sequins, flowers, chipboard, and frames in a way that will make your crafting experience much less frustrating.
Buttons, Beads, and Sequins
It’s a rare day when I don’t have buttons, beads or sequins in use. They are among my favorite embellishments! If You’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you are well aware of my weakness for buttons…especially vintage buttons!
Here’s the wall where I store those delightful little tidbits. I find that simple jars from the kitchen are a great way to keep buttons sorted by color and size. Plus, they look wonderful on display. I have sequins, beads, and stick pins tucked into jars on this CD rack that’s right behind my work station.
Bins of Flowers
Flowers are another favorite embellishment in my studio. Over the past 10 years I’ve been privileged to design on the Really Reasonable Ribbon, Reneabouquets, Petaloo and Little Birdie Design teams. So have have (ahem) a few flowers in my stash.
I’ve stored them in a lot of different ways, but the best solution I’ve found to date is cloth bins tucked into a cube storage system. I have them sorted by company and color so I can always find what I need quickly.
I’m currently a Brand Ambassador for Reneabouquets. This is the best chipboard I’ve ever worked with, and between what I have purchased and the goodies that Renea has sent me in my Brand Ambassador boxes, I have a LOT of it.
Because Reneabouquets Beautiful Board is detailed and somewhat delicate, I needed a way to store it that would protect it, but make it easy to access. My solution is this over the door clear shoe organizer. I have the pieces sorted by themes which makes it very easy to access.
