I think I mentioned earlier in the week in one of my blog posts that I need to organize several areas of my craft space. I started with my patterned paper and am just thrilled with it........
I was dreading tackling the "scrap paper box." Oh, and I didn't just have 1 "scrap paper box," I had two of them......Big boxes!
See for yourself!
|GOAL: To get all the scraps in the 2 white boxes put into the black DVD box beside them.|
These boxes are on the right side of my scoring station and they are usually left stacked just like this. The top box had (notice that I did say "had" :-D ) all of my PTI scraps and the bottom one had all of my patterned paper from other companies.
Here's what the filled boxes each looked like:
|Look how full!!! In all honesty, the bottom one is half as full, but how in the world did I accumulate so many scraps?|
Well, I did it!
It took me almost 4 hours!!!
My teacher instincts wanted to do what I do for the letters for my bulletin boards. Simply take a piece of cardstock, fold it in half and staple the sides. So, I went to work making the little envelopes to fit inside my DVD box. I labeled each with the PTI cs color name (not very neatly, either) and started stuffing those bad boys.
|Look how beautiful!!!|
Now, I simply have the black DVD case and a little basket for all of my other scraps sitting on my scoring station. I have so much more room and already I'm noticing that I'm using my scraps more.
