Earlier this week we looked at one storage solution and today we're continuing to look at another Storage Solution for some Stamping Supplies and a bonus method of tracking our punches,
One of Sandi's Stampers, Jackie Silvestri, has also contributed another "neat" idea. Do you ever have to chase your rolls of Washi tape around the drawer or have to dig through a container to find the right design?
Let's l0ok at Jackie's method of storing our Washi Tape...Jackie has taken jewelry storage bags--the kind that hang you your door--thus not requiring additional wall or shelf space. She has deposited the Washi Tape in each of the pockets. Since the pockets are clear--there's no need to actually label the pockets but you can tear a piece of the tape and stick it on the pocket for very quick identification of the patterns.
This keeps your drawers tidy--no rolls of tape running around or on the counter top....this is a quick set up and you can easily identify which pocket to which to return the tape when you are finished using it by just matching the piece of like tape on the pocket.
Now she also provided a bonus idea for us....if you are like me you have quite a number of hand-held punches. Sometimes I forget exactly which shapes are current or which tag punch will be quite the right size. Jackie has taken a piece of cardstock and punched each of her punches creating templates. She slips these into clear baseball card holders and hooks these onto a large key ring.
Not only does this provide a great catalog of punches but you can take these "cut outs" and hold them over a stamped image to see if that punch will fit your image. For example, stamp the "Thank You" on a piece of cardstock and then hold the templates over the stamped image to see which one fits best.
Two great ideas today and we want to say a BIG thank you to Jackie for sharing her ideas and storage solutions.
