For tools I’m considering things like punches, scissors, cricut and other machines and accessories, cutting tools, etc. How do you store these things? Here are a few ideas if you’re looking for new options:


I'd love a system like this overall, esp the bars for punches but SU changed their punch style so I'm not sure how useful it would be after a while. I have 5 or 6 su punches and then I'd have to look at the rest, not sure if they have handles or not (don't think most do). The baskets/cups/hooks are great though, too!

Magnet sheets

Cricut cartridges:

Embossing folders

oh i have those, the bard with the hanging baskets, they are from Ikea. I had bought them for my cricut carts but they are 1/2 centimeter to narrow at the bottom, but work great for jars, glimmer mist punches and everything else. with the rearranging i plan to do i can put of the long bar that i have.

I really want that 1st cricut cart holder, that is awesome i haven't seen that one before. they are all great actually

I just want to say Carrie that you are doing a wonderful job of this, so thank you for doing it all

Thank you bokkechick for my fantastic Siggy

I have a couple of the new SU punches and I think there is enough of a "handle" to still use the bar idea (at least I'm going to still use it with them )

All my tools are shoved into drawers that they don't fit into or stacked on overfull shelves. I plan on using the bar idea (though I like that shoe organizer idea too) for my punches

That Cricut Cart holder is pretty cool! I also like the one that's like a cubby for the cart boxes!

Overall my tools aren't that badly organized. I just need to clean up & put them back each time where they belong.

I just redid my emboss folders during this organizing challenge to something similar to what Carrie has - got 2 cd storage boxes on clearance that they fit perfectly in. My decor scissors & hole punches are hanging on my peg board. My punches are in the over the door organizer - which works great. My cricut carts right now are on 2 locker shelves stacked on top of each other (another clearance find I got at Walmart). The jukebox combo (DH got me as an early Christmas present) came with a couple of carts with no cases, so I need to think about how to store those.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

The tools I use the most are in a silverware basket on my scrappy table. My punches are in these - Walmart.com: Sterilite 7.2-Qt Modular Latch Box, Lapis, Set of 6: Storage & Organization . My eyelet tools are in the container with my eyelets and brads, my cricut carts are still in their box and will just be stored on shelves that way. The tools I haven't yet organized will go in boxes like what my punches are in.
