Theme (season, vacation, holiday, floral, vintage):

This option works well for both stickers and die cuts. When organized by theme, they are much easier to find and use. When you're working on a Fourth of July layout, for example, you can easily shuffle through your holiday stickers and die cuts to find just the right addition.


All your letter stickers can be organized by color. This system makes it easy to find the color you need while working on a layout.

Size/Type (border, frame, tag, etc.):

This method works best for die cuts as they come in all sizes and types. If you need a tag as the finishing touch on a layout, go right to your stash of tag die cuts. Sometimes a picture needs a little something extra, and the right die-cut frame will do the trick.


Many manufacturers make stickers and die cuts to coordinate with their papers. Keep all the accessories for a certain paper line together and you can quickly pull together a look.

HINT: The Sticker Stadium by Think Inside the Box allows you to sort items in tiered compartments, making everything easy to see. The unit comes with printed dividers -- just flip them over to customize categories.
