How do you have your embellishments currently organized (not including punches, cutters, etc Im considering them tools ). Does this work or is it something youd like to improve?
Here are some ideas for organizing your embellishments!



















I have all my little embellishments stored in baby food jars w/ black lids on a carousel thing and then I have some in these containers, and some in an embellishment drawer on a scrapbooking cart. I also have embellishments grouped by category (holidays, baby, birthday, etc) in my smaller cropper hopper cart. I like how I have the grouped embellishments stored though Id like to get everything together more and Id like to have a better way to organize my misc embellishments and rub ons so I can see them I am constantly forgetting what I have! I do like the clip it up but its a bit pricey. Id really like something like in the 1st photo, and Id also like to get some peg board.

My embellishments are in baby food jars which I hate cause the lids suck.

I love my sticker organization and it's easy and cheap!! (also takes up very little room).

I bought a 1.5" binder at walmart ($3.50) and page protectors (I got them free from hubby's work, but I've seen them at walmart next to the binder dividers) I slipped a white piece of printer paper into each page protector and a couple sticker sets on each side of the white paper (The paper give a good backing for those stickers on clear pages). I put 2 sticker sets on each side of the white paper ( 3 if they're small) and I can flip through them anytime to see what I have (I'll probably get some dividers soon and break them down into letter sets, holidays, pink set, etc)

I love my sticker organization. It's cheap, easy, takes up as much space as a binder, and easy to look through and find what I want

The binder is what I use for my stickers, letters and rub ons. It does work great. I did the same thing but I dont have the white paper in there, I might have to add it. I have my letters sorted by color and then stickers separated by theme. Christmas, Halloween, baby, kids, snow, fall, words, etc.

I have a peg board where I hang my stickers & letters, decorative scissors, hole punches & misc embellies. The stickers are sorted by theme and hung that way so I can flip thru to find the Christmas, boy, baby, nature, etc that I'm looking for. I have plastic boxes (shoebox size) that I keep my chipboard, brads, eyelets in. Inside the boxes, I have clear lid tin cans that separate my brads by type. I also have used empty tic tack boxes for that too.

I need to reconfigure the boxes & relabel them. and again put things away after I pull them out instead of leaving them to pile up.

It'll double the amount of stickers you can really see in each page

I use a fishing tackle box bow, but some of my stuff doens't fit well in it. So I'd love to purchase something like this in the near future.

I actually use a rotating spice rack for my embellishments. Like this one except mine has silver lids on the bottles. It takes up space on my table, but not too much.
