Cropper Hopper was the first to bring vertical paper storage to the crafting market in an effort to help scrapbookers better organize and get the most from their space. They recently upgraded their original vertical design.

The design now features:

  • - Open access and top access to your patterned paper
  • - A new size (2.625" x 13" x 12.5") to allow for storage in shelving such as the IKEA Expedit
  • - A new curved feminine design
  • - More finger pulls to pull the organizer from shelving from both the front and the back
  • - Condensed additional components to include only a “paper file” to protect specialty papers and a “page maker” to allow for all your products for a page to be held in one place
  • - MSRP is $7.99 per organizer
  • - Holds 200 sheets of 12" x 12" paper
