Scrapbooking Supply Storage: Thinking Outside the Box

Hi there! I am excited to be with you today talking about one of my favorite things about scrapbooking—organization! I’ve always said that I love organizing my scrapbook supplies just as much as I love using them. There is something so satisfying about finding the perfect container or the perfect spot in my room for every little paper, embellishment, tool, etc. I often find myself looking for containers, buckets, and baskets no matter where I am!

Fabulous Scrapbooking Storage

Not only do I love great containers, but I love them even more if they can do double duty by looking fabulous at the same time! I think the key to achieving this is to think outside the box when it comes to scrapbooking supply storage and organization. I don’t shop much in the “container” section of the stores. Instead I look for beautiful pieces in the kitchen or home decor areas that will also work for storage. Here is an example:


This is a small jewelry holder that I found at Target in the home decor section. Not only is it super pretty, but it is also perfect as a catch all for little items on my scrap table.

Another example is this:

I found this silver serving piece at a bargain store. It is meant for serving cookies, cupcakes, etc., but I placed some small bowls on it and use it to house lots of little items that I know I will want to use in the near future.

Thrifted Scrapbook Supply Organizers

Lately I have been frequenting the thrift stores and antique shops in my area, and I’ve found some of my most favorite organization pieces of all! At those kinds of stores you can find some of the more unique pieces that you normally might not think to use, but that are the perfect scrapbook storage solutions.

For example, I bought this old tool box and it sits near my scrap table to hold my current Studio Calico kit while I am using it. This way all of my papers and alphabets are in one spot and it helps keep them contained, but it also looks really cool.


Here are some other storage ideas I love:

This old muffin tin is great for storing little things that you want to keep out in view.

I am slightly obsessed with vintage milk glass dishes, and this one is perfect for storing my markers.

This little pink basket was found at an antique store for just a few dollars and I love how pretty it is!

Paper Organizers Hanging on the Wall

And finally, a favorite of mine are these metal baskets. I have had them for years and they have moved with me from house to house because they work so well for paper and sticker storage and they are cute at the same time! I spray painted them white and hung them on the wall behind my scrap table. It’s so convenient to have things I use often right behind me where I can get to them easily.

I hope I have inspired you to think outside the box a bit when it comes to looking for organizational items for your scrapbook or craft room! Remember to look everywhere and I bet you will find something amazing when you least expect it!!
