Why didn’t I think of this before?

Hi friends! Today I want to share one of the ways I make use of bins in my studio. I am a big fan of the 9 cube bookcases you can get inexpensively at Target, Walmart or Home Depot for craft storage. I like the cloth bins for keeping some items out of sight, contained and organised but there is a couple of problems with these bins. For one they are open and can be a black hole and you can lose stuff if you aren’t careful. The other problem is the budget ones are really flimsy (and I tend to go for the cheap ones so I can have more money to spend of nice supplies and because my cat likes to use them as a scratching post LOL!) In today’s video I’ll share my trick for overcoming both of those storage problems! Unfortunately I can’t help with the cat scratching problems but she leaves my good furniture alone so I’ll pick my battles:)

So, did you already know this trick? I love finding tips to better use my space and have my supplies readily available. Please share any tips you have in the comments below and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I have a challenge for you. What can we do with plastic containers such as peanut butter jars, soft butter tubs and mayonnaise jars? We used to be able to recycle these in our area, but they aren’t accepted for recycling anymore. How can you decorate them so they look sophisticated and appealing rather than just looking like a butter tub with some decoration on it? And does anyone have ideas for using these items as anything other than containers?

    I really enjoy all of your information!

  3. Here’s a tip for storing ribbon. I used to buy multiple card making kits and with them came a lot of loose ribbon. I had a 12 x 12 inch box, so I cut 2″ stips of cardboard 12″ long and wrapped the ribbon around it and secured it with scotch tape. By doing this I was able to store the ribbon by colors and that makes it much easier to find a match to paper or any other project you choose.
