Hi all,

I'm rearranging my scrap room/office, and the one thing that I really can't find a great (or even good) storage solution for is border stickers. Any solutions?

Thanks!

For all the long things like border stickers and Sizzix strip dies, I love document storage boxes, they're 9-something inches by 13-something inches and 2" high. Container Store has a great selection, and Ikea always has some options as well.

I bought a long 12-14 inches by 5 inches (approx size) container at Hobby Lobby that is perfect for the borders. It was right next to the Jet Max type cubes where the small plastic containers are located. I bought it 9 months or so ago and I think it was $5.99.

Are Pringles cans 12" tall?? That's genius!

I use clear Sterlite storage drawers. My drawers are a bit bigger than 12x12. I don't have a lot of borders, though, so I hate wasting extra space when something smaller would work (like a Pringle can).

I bought off of Ebay a vintage wood box that used to hold wrenches. It is 14 inches long so it's perfect for my boarder stickers.

The Pringles cans are a great idea! I have a couple of CM sticker binders and they have storage sheets for border stickers - I just use those.

Here's an idea: Get some 12" x 12" clear plastic envelopes. Put some adhesive strips or dots from top to bottom to separate the envelope into sections, wide enough to fit the borders. Then you can slip the borders into the sections. You could even use empty scrapbook pages and store the borders in an extra scrapbook. That would make it easy to find and select the one you want to use.

I store my borders, by category, in iris cases,along with paper and diecuts of the same category.

Solitaire, have you actually done this? I would think that the border stickers would get stuck to the adhesive.

I've run plastic pockets through the sewing machine to section them off before. That works. I'm sure it would work with page protectors too if you wanted exactly 12"x12".

The Pringles can is a great idea, but I did find a cheap plastic spaghetti storage jar at the Dollar Store that works even better because it's clear.

Hobby Lobby has a great plastic sterlite type container that is perfect. Its about 12 inches long and 5-6 inches wide. I have been meaning to get a second one. Works perfect. Back in the container section by scrapbook section.

I use cheap underwear hangers that are designed to go on clotheslines, they're hanging from a beam in my craftroom. There's pics in my gallery
