Once again I'm not sure if I have the correct forum (I have a knack for putting things in the wrong space).  I'm moving soon into a much large space, so I can set things up in my craft area as separate stations.  I know what I'm doing for most of my crafty bits, but the paper.  I can't seem to come up with ideas for how to organize paper bits well.  I don't like laying it on shelves, because I all ways end up needing the piece in the middle and then it is all messed up again, so I have the small 8.5X11 stuff in magazine folders, but I don't know what to do with bigger and smaller sizes.  Does any one have any clever tips, favo tools for organizing paper ephemera? Any info is much appreciated Grin

At the moment mine are in various baskets (for big papers) and small drawers for smaller bits, organised by type. It's not ideal and needs a lot of rooting to find things.

I'm interested to know if anyone has some good ideas, I could use some better organising!

For the smaller bits I use a zippered binder full of baseball card/trading card holders I found for cheap and sort them by type.  You can flip through and see your stash at a glance and it is so very portable, for all that crafting on the go! Good Luck and congrats on the new larger craft space!  Color me green with envy! Grin

Phizzychick, I imagine it would be pretty to have baskets of paper hanging about.  I like to be able to see my crafting materials.  That is the hard part about orging paper I have decided.  Normally stacking craft supplies makes them easier to see.  But with paper it just hides it.  I am entertaining the idea of making a swatch ring or some such, since I have to go through sorting after a move.  But when I really think about how time consuming that would be mixed with I'm not that organized to start with, so maintenance would be not fun for me.  I might be able to manage ripping off a corner and throwing it in a bowl or box.  But then there is the issue of then not having a full piece of paper.

OOO! Nice tip.  Thanks violetbellerophon Grin

I bought a melamine cupboard and it is full of shelves.  I think they are about 3 inches apart.  We found it a ReStore on sale for 15$.  I also saved all the Brandy Bean chocolate boxes from Xmas.  They are squarish and about an inch high.  I think they will be good for odd bits of paper.  I need to get better about labeling things too.
