I was just wondering if anyone has a good way to store those 12 inch border stickers (the ones from K and company). I've started acquiring a bunch of them, and I cannot find a good way to store them.

You used to be able to get page protectors that were segmented into strips to hold these stickers from crop n style I think....

Can you use a plastic wallet and stitch down it to form pockets?

Check out Container Store, Ikea, etc. for something called a document box - they're usually about 9-10" wide, 13-17" long, and a couple inches high. I store my long border dies in one and they fit perfectly. It's still a box that you'll have to paw through a bit but it'll at least keep them contained and protected.

A friend of mine gave me a tube she covered in pretty paper. It sits on my desk and I love it. If I buy more....I will have to figure something else out.

I have a peg board mounted to one wall in my scrap room. I hang my embellies like they do at the store.

I have Sterlite containers that are large enough for my 12x12 paper. Those should work.

how about a container that's made to store Spaghetti?

Like the "ClickClack Accents Pasta Canister with Lid and Toggles" sold on Amazon. it's 12.9 inches tall.

Thanks for all the great ideas everyone! The spaghetti holder is my favorite so far. I'll have to keep looking!

I have some in a long narrow box.



I don't think crop-in-style makes the PSB inserts anymore, but the ones below are similar (if not the same).

I've found that a 12 x 12 box doesn't hold mine very well, especially if you want to keep the packaging. I clip them up.

I put mine on those big clips sorted with themes or colors or packages and then put them in my plastic storage container. I have a lot and it works for me.
