Find a Storage Solution

After deciding how best to organize your stickers and die cuts, the next step is to find a workable storage solution. I discovered a combination of storage types works best for me. The more accessible your supplies, the more likely you are to use them. You don't need a lot of space or expensive storage containers to create an effective system.

Three-Ring Binder:

Using different-size sleeves and compartments in a three-ring binder is an easy sticker and die cut storage solution. Sleeves made specifically for scrapbookers come with compartments of varying dimensions to hold any size piece you might own. For an inexpensive alternative, you also can use trading card sleeves in the binder. Buy a binder with a closure so you won't have to worry about items slipping out.

Accordion File Folder:

This storage idea is perfect for letter stickers. After organizing them by color, store your letter stickers in an accordion file folder. Write each color on the top tab for easy access. Consider saving a section for dimensional letters. Accordion files are designed to stay shut, preventing accidental sticker spills.

Hanging File Folders:

After placing stickers and die cuts in clear, sealable bags, place them upright in a hanging file folder. If you trim your stickers and separate your die cuts, they will fit nicely in a small plastic bag. This also works well for larger die cut sheets you want to keep together. If you sort your paper, stickers, and die cuts by manufacturer, you can combine the bag of stickers and die cuts with your paper storage.

HINT: Plastic sleeves designed for slide, photo or trading card storage are ideal for stashing die cuts separated from their packaging. A TrueCore Binder Box from Light Impressions houses our sheets. The boxes are rigid and can be stacked upright on a shelf.
