Craftroom Organization 101: Paper

Hi Crafters, welcome back to another day of organization. Today we are looking at paper. Paper is something you need to be practical and realistic about – especially if you have a small space. If you are a cardmaker, you can literally make dozens of cards from one 6×6 pad – but you are going to get bored of it after a while. I have one box (see below) and when this box is full, I either have to use it or give it away to a good home if I want more. If you look at my cards, you will see that I rarely use patterned paper. So I try to keep it minimal.

All my paper is cut into 6×6 panels. One day I decided that my 12×12 paper was taking up too much space and I no longer scrapbooked so I nearly purged it all and cut down my favourite patterns into small, manageable sizes and quantities. 

The store card bases, pre cut card panels (4 x 5 1/4), vellum, masking paper and watercolour paper in this container – all cut and ready to go in the sizes I need. The rest of my full size paper is stored away, out of reach for when I need to cut some more. This prevents clutter in my area. I tend to keep 1-2 pieces of full size colour cardstock (8 1/2 x 11) in plastic page protectors in my top drawer of my rolling drawers.
