How do you store your letters: rub ons, stickers etc.. I have mine currently in a plastic expandable folder but it keeps bursting open at the wrong times. I want to get something different but I can't seem to find the right item. Any ideas??

I don't have that many. Maybe 20 or 25? They are just in a cardboard wallet that sits in a hanging wallet system in a deep drawer. I just lift the whole thing out if I want something. It works for me.

Alphabet stickers are in a drawer in one of the jetmax cubes
Rubons are in a separate drawer...
and I don't have that many stickers....just don't really use stickers anymore...

When I go to my annual retreat, I just throw what I need into a large ziploc bag and put it in my rolling tote...

I keep my alphabets in 12x12 page protectors. One pack of thickers usually fits really well on one side, another pack on the other side (with a piece of cardstock between for support). Right now they're in a Cropper Hopper file but I keep meaning to pick up a cheapo album to hold them all.

Mine are in a bin. I just don't use them that much. Maybe if I had a better storage system I would see them and use them more. A lot of them are older that I probably wouldn't buy again now... they have white edges/backgrounds or something that just doesn't fit my style anymore.

I keep my letter stickers & Thickers held on a ring like this...

{A - Alpha Stickers} By KellyCali

In the past (I'm always changing things), I have kept the rest of my stickers hung & stored like this (sorted by theme)...

Note: If there isn't already a 'hanging hole', you can make yourself one by using either a paper hole punch or a Crop-A-Dile.

{S - Sticker Storage} By KellyCali

Currently, I store my stickers like this...(shown down below in one of the pink bins). It's not a perfect system for everyone, but in the end, it's what works for me!

What sort of folder do you have that busts open?

I have a letter size plastic expandable folder that has a sort of lock on it.


Check an office supply store for options. There are LOTS of storage containers that should stay closed.

Or a hard Art Bin sort of case?

I don't have that many right now but I keep them in a zippered binder in page protectors. When I can no longer spell anything with what I have, I will be just die cutting everything so I can have any color I want and all the vowels I need. Chipboard is sorted in a small drawer unit by letters.

I have 2 Hobby Lobby brand clip out up units and almost an entire one holds my Thickers. Ones that aren't Thickers are in clear bags according to what type/theme they are.

For sheets, I have them in Sterlite container drawers. For individual letters, I have a nut/bolt/screw organizer from the tool section that stores my individual abc's....

I keep my sticker letters in a slippered binder from the Container Store ( no longer available) and I use pockets from cropper hopper to sort. I try to buy very little sticker letters and I hope one day to not have them. I cut my letters mostly.

I'm intrigued. What's a 'slippered binder'?



I know lots of people love their clip it up (or similar), but this person is looking for portable storage to put in her crop bag.


There's also the Crop in Style Paper Sticker Binder. It IS pretty big.

I have different systems but not happy with any. I need to find a way to keep them together so I can use them more. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I may try some of them.

Some fantastic storage ideas... I keep the ones in the original pkg. in slotted drawer {Recollections cube} - However, the ones that I pull out to use on a layout - and then decided against using, I store in pockets. {I used to put them all together in a ziploc...never to be used again}

MIne are in a 12 x 12 artbin with handle and it is full! It stays in my crop wagon so I can take it with me when I go to crops.

I see a lot of you say you don't use letter much anymore?? What do you do for letters? Since these are quite costly (in my opinion) would like some ideas. Thanks.
