We love organizing our crafts as much as we love crafting. Here are some fun ideas we came up with! Add your fun ideas in the comments!
Jennifer & Kitty
Even if you live in a tiny apartment, no artist should be without a studio. So carve out a creative nook with the help of a thrift-store suitcase. Open it up and arrange your bead bins, tools, and findings in the bottom. Then display finished pieces and works-in-progress inside the lid. To make your mini-studio complete, hang up a sign to remind yourself that a studio is a studio no matter how small.
Turn sewing-table clutter into a fancy mood board with a gilded flea market frame. Hang notions and trims from ornate hooks on a velvet-covered board. Use it to display your prettiest buttons and a rainbow of thread. Sew chic!
Cook up a scrapboooking station with some handy kitchen helpers. Make a paper sorter by stacking cookie sheets on 1½-inch hex nuts and securing them with Amazing Goop. Sort brads and die-cuts into a mini-muffin pan and store Soufflé pens in kitchen canisters. You’ll be ready to cook up something good!
Flip Your Lids
Put papercrafting embellishments in little containers like recycled baby food jars. They’re not only the perfect size for rhinestones, sequins, and watch faces, but they’re also free! Label the tops with circle-punched paper and drop them in a drawer for easy access.
The Quicker Clipper-Upper
Don’t save magazine clippings in a folder where you can’t see them! Clip them up in your studio to make idea streamers. Use clothespins to attach pictures and swatches onto strands of ribbon. Then hang them all over your studio until it’s overflowing with inspiration!
