Looks like I might start buying stencils. How in the world do I store them?

I have a 12x12 ring binder that I store mine in 12x12 page protectors. Hint never buy bigger they are really hard to store.

There is a pant hanger cart I saw at a garage sale (and passed up on) that rolls that has the clip on pant hangers that might work for larger stencils?

Hey!

See my Template Album I posted under scrap room. I love it this way. They will be a lot more usable if you have several:

Just buy a cheap album and you will enjoy it!

I'm planning to put mine in a binder, but I was thinking I'd use a notebook size one, but I'm pretty sure I have several 12x12 stencils, so I guess I'll need a big one. Rats...I was hoping it could go on a shelf neatly with my stamp binders and all the other notebooks. I might end out using one of those big plastic pouches that are 99ยข at M's. I haven't gotten to organizing the stencils yet, so I have time to think about it :>) Meanwhile, I just keep ordering them and have them all in one of the plastic envelopes that sb ships paper in.

I have 12x12 plastic storage boxes. For now that is how I store mine. I like that they lay flat in there.

I had mine in a 12x12 project box but still in their wrap to keep them from getting tangled. This is easier to flip through and protects them.

I use 12 x 12 iris cases and store embellies and special paper by theme. I divided up my stencils and put them in the appropriate container.
