I'm trying to figure out a way to organize/store my letter stickers. I thought of putting them in a binder using clear 3-hole punch sleeves, but many of the packages are longer than a standard 8.5 x 11 binder, and I haven't been able to find anything to fit them.

Has anyone found a good way to store their letter stickers?

I cut all mine apart, sorted by letter and put them in a plastic tool box with trays I got at WM. When I need to spell out something, I just pull the trays I need. It works very well for me--The tool box was made to hold screws and stuff and has enough trays for the whole alphabet plus a few extra I use for punctuation and numbers. It hangs on my wall in my scrapping area.

You could use a clear plastic 12" x 12" envelope and stack the letter packages in two rows side by side.

I recently started using 12x12 page protectors for all of my stickers and masks. A package of Thickers fits perfectly with the two sheets side by side. I put a piece of cardstock in for stability, and put a package on each side. All the other brands are in here as well. For the smaller masks - like the 6x6 Crafters Workshop ones - I got page protectors that are divided into sections. The divided ones come in all sorts of configurations if you want to organize more specifically.

I have a storage bin with deep drawers. I sort my letter stickers by color. Then I put all packs of the same color on a ring that is the same color as the letter packs and put it inside the drawer

Sort them by color, in ROYGBIV order.

I store mine in the cropper hopper file/magazine holder type thingies....and then they sit on a shelf
I have one paper holder for black, one for white/natural, one for colours....works for me!

My homemade clip it up By JayAndXansMom

This is how I store mine. Although now I use a much wider and stronger dowl rod to hold my stuff since that cheap shower curtain rod couldn't hold much weight. I group mine together in colors.

I keep mine in a 8.5 x 11 binder using clear 3-hole punch sleeves. For the ones that are too long I cut them in half. Just don't cut through your letters!! there is room to cut inbetween.
All mine are sorted by color.

@JanandXans mom....I love this idea! I actually have a little wall where I could do this.

Thanks everyone, all these ideas are awesome.

Happy Scrappy Sunday

I tried this but it didn't work for me. I wound up using the button closure plastic 12x12 sleeves from michaels. I like them better and I can easily take it w/ me when I'm working on something at a crop.

I do the same thing! Works great for me.

I keep mine stacked vertically in a plastic bin, about 7 inch wide by about 5 inch tall and quite long. sorted by size - lots of my stickers are assorted colors, so sorting by color doesn't make sense. But size does work for me - if I have space for a large title, I start with the back of the bin) If I want to fit a long title, I start flipping through them from the front. Many times I'll find the perfect size and then decide which color I'll use from the ones I have.

Mine have been stored by color in an old CM Consultant paper tote. Has handles and is easy to transport. (I have lots of letters)

I store mine sideways in an extra-long (15") flat-bottomed basket I found at M's:

New Sticker Storage - Alphas By Papermouse

I absolutely love this solution because it's so easy to flip through and see what I have-and to put them away when I'm done. I throw all the 12x12 sheets in the very back.

I have mine in a 12x12 box right now, but I think I will move them to a binder. Good idea, and that will free up a box.
