Scrapbook Organization Made Easy! Treasures and Trinket Thursday!

Howdy my bloggy friends!
I hope you’re having a lovely week!
I have had, what I believe to be, the flu,
so my week has been less than wonderful!(achoo!..bless me! )
Winking smile
Oh well! It’s time for our Treasures and Trinkets Thursday Linky Party
and I’m linking up some wonderful little
Organizational Treasures!
Link up something you love, or something you’ve organized!
(and if it’s not too much trouble, could you link back to this post..thanks, I knew you would..you all are just special like that!)
How many of you have TONS of these tiny little scrapbooking/card-making pieces laying around?
I have LOADS of them, and they were
EVERYWHERE!

I found this little box of containers marked down at Walmart.

(It says $14.00, but I think I got them for $11.00….
not too bad for 30!)
They’re Martha Stewart wedding favor boxes…
but I had other ideas for them!

I picked up several packs of these heavy duty magnets
while I was in there…they have adhesive backs.

Aren’t these the cutest little containers..and they’re metal!
So sweet!

I put two of the magnets on the back of each container….some of my embellishments are heavy, so I wanted extra strength!

Then I started sorting and boxing!

I put all the items in these that I use the most!

For the items I don’t use quite as often, 
I found this little contraption at
Tuesday Mornings!

Do these little compartments remind you of anything?

Yep, you could do this with the little medicine dispensers sold in the pharmacy department!

I went ahead and got this because it was marked down to $7.00 and it has the little book they go in.  It also has extra storage on the other side.  But hey, if you don’t care about that, you could probably find these little pill storage boxes at the
Dollar
Tree or Dollar Store
and have storage galore for your little items! (or it would be great for earrings too for traveling or home!….so many possibilities!)

I also straightened up my craft ribbons, tags, and all my other
scrapbooking goodies in this office storage box…

MUCH NEATER!
(if you’d like to make a wrapping station for your gift wrapping ribbon go here,
the ribbon I use in this box is strictly
for card-making
)
Here’s a look at everything all nice and neat!

I just stuck the little metal boxes on the front of my metal
file cabinet in my scrapbooking area and they work like a charm!
AND, I still had tons left for future uses!
( I used some for spices in my kitchen!)
Handy, handy!
Well that’s it for today!
Hope you have a  great week!
Hugs!

It sounds like you are feeling a little better! I know that the "plague" that I had right at New Years lasted a good 10 days to 2 weeks! It was nasty! Ugh! I like your container idea. I don't scrapbook but I do have a sewing room(quilt room but I don't quilt anymore) that I am planning on turning into a general craft room. I thought it would be a fun place to have the grandkids create stuff. Anyways, the little containers could hold a whole bunch of different "stuff"! Hope you are feeling 100% soon! ~Hugs, Patti

I love all your little bits in their beautiful organized bliss. I linked up twice...hope that's okay. Join me in my linky Fridays Unfolded, if you can.

Blessings,

LOL! Our son when he was small and would sneeze would say "bless me" afterwards. I had to laugh when I saw that. Thanks for the ideas. Now I'm thinking maybe I'll use magnetic paint on the front of that big cabinet and some of those small containers. That's what is going out to the sewing room next, all my scrapbooking supplies. Trying to get organized this year. No excuses with all the kids gone now. Hope you feel better.

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather, Missy! Hope it passes quickly! Love all your organizing ideas...I so need to get organized! You're inspiring me!

Robyn said...

You MUST be on the mend! YAY!! Now if I could just get you to come over and do that fabulous transformation, organizational magic to my scrap room, I'd be happy! ;-) GREAT IDEAS!

Don't you love when everything has a place and there is a place for everything? Like your little Martha Stewart wedding favor tins and your clever way of using them. I hope you feel a bit better today but I know the course this illness takes ...
one step forward, two steps back.

Your Friend,
Deborah
