Love a bit of craft storage!
Recently I've been trying to sort out my craft storage. I've got so much stuff it getting a hidden and unused then I find things I didn't even know I had!
It started with a new shelf for my sewing books and patterns, then little drawers for small bits (from Homebase), a ribbon shelf (handmade from a seller on eBay) and now a paper organiser. These are in addition to my craft drawers, adhesive storage unit (made from an old wine box, husbands idea) and shelving unit.
My most recent purchase was the Totally Tiffany Paper Manager and Storage Tote. I'd seen it on Create and Craft TV and it's £19.99 for a sturdy holder, 3 plastic sleeves for 12 x 12 papers and 3 plastic sleeves for 12 x 12 papers plus pockets on the other side for embellishments. Currently my 12 x 12 papers are leaning on my shelf and aren't organised at all, I have to get them all out to find the one I'm looking for.
The storage came this morning but had no instructions at all which usually wouldn't be a problem but trying to put the bottom of the storage together seemed impossible, but luckily a quick search on YouTube and I found a video by Totally Tiffany on assembly!
My papers only just fit as I have quite a collection and will be organising them this weekend. I love the handles on the storage as it makes it easier to lift especially when it's full!
Once I've sorted it I'll post a picture. It was definitely worth £19.99 in my opinion as it is very sturdy and needs to be as it is really heavy once full.
I think craft storage is definitely my new obsession!
