I had been keeping my 12x12 cardstock & patterned paper collection largely in the Cropper Hopper paper organizers that hold 200 sheets each. While this did keep everything organized, I got tired of having to pull out one or more containers with that much paper each time I needed some. I figured "easy access" sounded much better, so I ordered 2 of these. I had no trouble putting them together. Each one took me about 5-10 minutes to assemble. I did crack one divider piece a bit trying to slide it into place, but once I got it slid into its track in the base, it worked out OK. While I do still have my cardstock in the 200-page holders within the Easy Access Paper Holder, I was able to subdivide my patterned paper into the smaller, 50-sheet holders. (The only reason I keep my cardstock in the larger ones is that I ran out of the smaller ones I had on hand!) I would highly recommend getting as many of the 50-sheet holders as you think you might need, as this product does not include them. Each section in this holder will hold 4 of those 50-sheet organizers, provided you don't overstuff them. Yes, it is possible to store your paper/cardstock loose in these dividers, but I think it would eventually lead to bent corners and dinged edges on the sheets. Overall I am very happy with this, and would highly recommend it to anyone!
I have my paper separated and stored by theme in my Creative Memories decofile folders and I also use the Cropper Hopper page planners to preplan pages for crops or just when an idea hits me and I only have time to grab the supplies for what I have in mind. This paper holder fits perfectly on my scrapbook room bookcase shelf and keeps all my paper folders upright for "easy access" - just like it says! This is my second one to purchase and they both took a little concentration and coordination to put together, but they are sturdy and do the job. I also take one with me to sit on my tabletop at crops and have my paper/page planners within reach while I work.
Finally I got them and I am very pleased with the capacity to hold my mounds and mounds of paper. Very easy to assemble and seemingly sturdy.
One I am using to store my cardstocks and the other I will use to store some of my favorite paper lines so that I will use them.
Running out of storage solutions and shifting through more paper than you are creating LO's I think this item will resolve a little of that problem.
Used in this scraproom: Aaah!
I had already purchased 3 of these but needed one more! I can fit 2 shelves of paper onto one shelf using these. It is best suited for cardstock but if you have 'lots of paper' even your regular paper stays put. I don't put vellum or special papers (glitter/very thin, etc) in it. Great product and sturdy - Only con I can say is -- I wished it would go on sale from time to time!
It was a little tricky to put together and the directions were vague, but it was not that hard. Works great, fits into my storage cabinets from Target perfectly! I would highly recommend.
This is a great product and does exactly what it's advertised to do. TY for the product photo. My one complaint is for the instructions to match the product. I found it humorous that the illustrations were numbered, but the product pieces were not. This product's material makes it very sturdy- which is what makes it great, but I had to have my hubby help me cause I couldn't make the pieces slide together. Come to find out (from him) the back was actually the bottom, but when we went to remove said pieces it would not come apart & i didn't want to break anything. So I guess even my technical/ construction-minded better half couldn't have known back from bottom either!
This is a great product it use with your Cropper Hopper products. I use the Cropper Hopper Sticker Envelope and this product is perfect for it. I usually can't keep my envelopes upright, they just slide everywhere. But not with this! It's so great!!!!
This only thing I didn't like was the assembly of it. You need to slide all the parts together, and they wobble around while you are trying to put it together, very frustating. But once it's together, it great!
Once my husband and I assembled this paper holder (yes, it was that challenging), I could see that it was worth the struggle to assemble it. It is awesome! Now I have a specific place to put my supplies for upcoming projects. And I won't trip over them, use them for something else, or misplace them. The little shelf on top is like an extra bonus. :-) It was not easy to assemble, but I'm sure glad we did. I can see the advantage of having more than one.
REALLY like these Cropper Hopper Paper Holders. Easy to assemble and they fit perfectly on the bottom shelf of my three-shelf wall unit. The easy access allows me to get the paper out of the holder w/o having to tilt or remove the holder from shelf. They do not come with the dividers which helps you keep colors separate, so be sure order a set of those too. Great organization tool! (go vertical!)
I found it was easier to have two people assemble this, as the directions are written in TINY text. Nevertheless, it is serving its purpose, and I do recommend it.
Little strange to put together some of the rails and slits were so tight made it difficult for someone with arthritis in hands to put together!
Once this is together it's ok although you can't move without taking everything out since it isn't very sturdy
I had the worst time putting it together and even with my husband's help it is still misaligned :also cracked a piece and broke of chips of plastic trying to get the sliders to work. Not worth the money or effort since there better products out there
These paper holders are a nice size, but are a bear to put together. I broke several pieces off of the plastic during construction. Unfortunately, the parts don't want to go together well. I'll be sending the other 4 I purchased back.
I waited a long time to find the right storage solution for all my mounds of paper. I have had my Easy Access Paper Holders (4 of them) now for nearly a year. Some of the reviews stated that they were a little difficult to put together. I did not find this to be true at all. I am a single mom and over the years have had to learn to be handy - maybe that helped - but I found they were very easy to assemble (all by myself), are extemely sturdy, and hold tons and tons of paper. I use 2 of my holders for solid colored card stocks and the other two to hold all my project envelopes (the envelopes fit just as nicely as the paper). Going vertical saves a lot of room and looks attractive! I love these holders and highly recommend them to everyone.
I already had a paper holder and with a vast collection of paper found I needed more. I really like my paper holders. I keep them on a shelf and can easly organize and select paper.
I have spent most of the evening trying to put this together (perhaps I have a faulty one) and it's still not right, there's a gap between the top bit and top of the back bit, instead of them meeting!
