Got Craft Clutter? Try these storage solutions


I don't know about you but my craft room always seems to be disorganized. Everything is always everywhere and never put away properly. That is partly because everything doesn't have it's own place. I need to do some organizing and found some wonderful craft room storage solutions for inspiration.

As always click on the picture and it will take you to the source post for details of all the ideas.

This is a must do for me. I love the look of this tray and its easy access to all your favourite tools.

 I have been dreaming of a rubber stamp storage similar to this for a long time. I love that it uses otherwise wasted space and I have the perfect area for it in my craft room.

Hang lace on vintage rulers (or ribbon scraps). This hanging idea would be great for clear rubber stamps too.

Mason jars on the bottom of a shelf. I like how this one has larger jars in the back and smaller ones in the front so you can still see each jar in the back.

Ribbon storage. This blog post tells why she went from the pink version to the white version pictured below.

I love the idea to keep various craft items like markers and crayons in clear glass storage. This way they are easy to see and find what you need. As a bonus it looks oh so pretty.

Ink pad storage! This is a DIY to make the shelf yourself but an old cassette holder from a thrift store painted up would work too. I have one waiting to be painted :)
