I don't have those (I want them though!), but if it were me I'd throw them all together in a big baggie and put them with my embellishments.

Do they have the hole at the top to hang them? I would hang them on a curtain rod using those clippies that are circles...not sure what they are called...

I store all of my chipboard in photo boxes that I can label. (flowers, letters, etc.)

I put my in quart size freezer bags (each type has it's own bag) and punch a hole in the tough upper part of the bag and hang them on a peg board hook.

What do you use them for? I never understood the purpose of buying basic shapes like that. I'd think that it'd be a whole lot cheaper to just cut them out.

So how do you use them?

One of my FP Big Boards had an entire board of rectangle shapes. Not pleased as #1 I think it was a waste and #2 I have no idea how to use them. *sigh* Help a girl out!

I have mine in a baggie, in a sterilite drawer labeled chipboard, and the reason I know this is because I just went through said drawer this brrrr weekend and looked lovingly at all my stash.

I have my small chipboard in a small drawer, my larger chipboard in its own section on my paper racks, and chipboard alphas divided up by letter in a bead box. I don't have the Bazzill Chips, I didn't even SEE them until I saw this thread...now I want some!!!! I love chipboard!!!

I have tons of them, I use them for all kinds of things, the bigger ones I used to make a calendar, part of it is in my gallery and then I have covered the 1.75" pieces with patterned paper s and made my own embellies, I haven't uploaded that lo yet. Not quite finished. I have also used the large rectangle pieces as covers for a mini chipboard album.

True, you can cut shapes out of paper, and for those on a limited budget that is a sure way to go. I use chipboard because of the thickness. They add dimension to my layouts that I like. Paint them, cover them with paper, put journaling words on them, titles on them. Lots of ways to use as an embellishment.

You can do all sorts of things with them! The larger ones can make cute mini albums. I used them for Christmas projects like this:

Oh forgot to say,I never had to think about storing them as I used mine up as soon as I got them! I would probably put them in a baggie and store with the rest of my chipboard.
