Welcome back to Out of the Box Organization week! So far, we've looked at how baking and vintage finds can liven up your scrap space and store items neatly. Today, I'll show you some darling office supplies that can serve double duty in the scrapping workforce! These items are often inexpensive and, best of all, can be found in any office or home supply store and not just a specialty scrapbook store!
These delectable file folders can sort clippings from magazines, ideas jotted down on scrap paper, paper scraps, and flat embellishments like stickers and rub-ons.
Consider storing them in a file holder or cabinet and organizing each folder according to whatever system suits you best.
Next up, magazine holders might not be made for scrappy purposes, but they can easily transform themselves into ideal scrapbook storage! Whether you're storing scrapbooking magazines and idea books or alphabet stickers and paper, these attractive storage options come in dozens of colors and designs, so you can find one that perfectly coordinates with your decor!
A traditional letter holder can be repurposed to hold stickers, rub-ons, and anything else. This would be a wonderful item to leave on your scrap desk and organize products according to what upcoming projects you're planning to use them for. You can also store trimmers and other often-used items in these letter holders.
A letter tray can serve much the same purpose--organize by projects you are planning for the future, favorite products you don't want to lose, or alphabets, rub-ons and tools you reach for all the time!
For vertical storage needs, try a magazine sorter hanging up on your wall. If you scrap a smaller size than 12 X 12, this can be used to house recent layouts. Otherwise, use it to store alphabets, rub-ons, stickers, and any other larger items. If you're an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of scrapper, than this can help you remember some items you keep forgetting to use!
If you like to scrap with a lot of electronic assistance--whether die-cut machines, ipods, or anything else--a docking station can come in handy to keep all of those unsightly cords out of the way. (I could stand to take my own advice on this one!)
Finally, these letter boxes are perfect for storing stamps, inks, flowers, or any other smaller embellishment. If you are the type of scrapper who likes to have everything tucked away out of sight, these little guys can be your organizational best friends!
