I am looking for the best way to keep my stickers organized. Right now they are in an accordion file - but that stopped working long ago. I have too many stickers to make that a workable option. How do you keep your collection of stickers organized so you can see what you have and keep them from getting messed up or lost?

Thanks!

That's a good question...... I have so many free floating sheets right now it's sad.

I used to put stickers (and that was a long time ago) in a 3 ring notebook in pocket page organizers (like baseball card holders) I liked the top loading ones best as the side loading ones dumped out my stickers. Now? I just stick them in a drawer, Yes I need to organizer them again, sigh.

I don't have many, but mine are just in a basket that lives on a shelf. They aren't even in any particular order, but I know what I've got so they are easy to leaf through. They could be separated into subject sections by using labelled dividers quite easily.

The alpha stickers are separate.

Sorry, not much use to you!

I keep my stickers in the cropper hopper sticker envelopes and then keep them all together in a Thirty-One Your Way Cube with a window on the front. I plan to make a "Stickers" sign to go in the front but just haven't got to it yet. I had tried so many things that just wouldn't work, so I was excited to finally get something that would work.

I put mine in we are memory keeper page protectors. Then i put them in a notebook. When i go to a crop, i just bring the page protectors. The ones that i use the most are full 12 x 12.

I have a PSB that I bought YEARS ago with a lot of inserts, you inspired me to pull it back out and use it since my sticker stash has grown a bit AGAIN. I really like the Binder - however finding the inserts is really hard now since the company I believe no longer exists - however, you could just get the pocket page protectors and use those like Bon.

I like that idea Rosey - so nice to have a name to reply to. Some like to do that, some don't but I find it helpful when people put their name in their signature or on their avatar.

Go almost to the top of this page Donna where it says, "My Forum Settings" - click on that.

Then click on "Control Panel" and then "Signature" - you will see a box to type in. That is all there is to it!

Yay!! For my 2 cents...i like a siggy name too! I think lots of people are afraid to leave too much information out there in cyberspace...

As far as the original post...i have two, okay, three lidded stackable boxes that hold all my stickers/embellies. One is just alphas in ROYGBIV, the other two hold everything else by topic. I made a list of all the categories..ie holiday, season, birthday, boy/girl, sports, animal, vacation, etc. I made index dividers from the cardboard backs of paper stacks and labeled them. Then all the dividers are alphabetized.

Each season or holiday is subdivided so i can find it all easily - when i need a Halloween sticker or border i know EXACTLY where it is! This system took a bit of time to sort n set up...but SOOO WORTH IT!

That is one of the best ideas I have heard of. I will have to get some and start sorting. Hopefully I won't be too picky sorting

I have way to many stickers too, but most f mime are on clip it ups, but my way too big collection of alpha stickers are cut into smaller size sheets if they are long and put into pages that I cut part from cheap 4x6 photo albums. Then they are sorted by color, and 1sticker ( or die cuts) like a x or z is put on a page with the same color of stickers, and given a letter and # that I write beside the sticker and on the sleeve that holds them. So when I am looking for a blue sticker , I look In the book on the blue page and decide which I want to use and then find it in the drawer by the color and number. It makes it easy to look at my layout and the sheet in the book to find the
ones I want to use. I don't just stick them on the. Page though - I use tiles or cut out shapes, all different waysnofnusing them for titles.

Sorry for the long description!

I use the stackable Sterlite drawers for mine, have them divided between 9 drawers. I did the accordian thing at first, and outgrew that, and then did the page protectors, but that was annoying to dig through. I've stuck with this for awhile, so far so good.

I use another stack of these for my paper scraps sorted by color. Works great! Also 9 drawers there.

So I just finished organizing mine and actually found my idea on youtube....I took manila folders and cut the tabs off and then cut then on the fold. I took the stickers out of the package and with my ATG I glued them to the manila folders and put them in a 3 ring binder. I have them sorted my letters and by different themes. HTH!!

Hello
I divided mine by themes,used the smallest freezer bags(they are more sturdy) and keep them stashed vertically in a few shoe box-like plastic containers on the top shelf of my scrapbook closet.If I need one ,for example,Valentine bag,I pull out the bag out of my box and grab it,instead of carrying entire box to my craft table.

I also used my dymo machine to label the freezer bags by theme and plastic boxes by season.
For example,I store my X-mas,snowflakes,and valentine stickers in my Winter box,etc.

It keeps them organized.Just remember to put them back in place to keep in order,after you done with your project.
Hope that helps!Happy crafting!
