5 Ways to Organize Craft Supplies

It is that time of year again.  The time when we all want to get clean, organized, and turn over a new leaf for the new year.  I am working on my craft area this new year.  Read on to learn more about how to organize your craft supplies with items from Consumer Crafts.  Organize your craft supplies now for a year of crafty fun!

Organize-craft-supplies-Crafts-UnleashedA Lazy Susan is one of the standards of organization.  Even craft supplies can be corralled into this easy to access organizing accessory.

Supplies needed to organize supplies with a lazy Susan:

Organize-craft-supplies-Crafts-Unleashed-1I used E-6000 to adhere the bottoms of my pails to the Lazy Susan.  Then just fill it up for instant organization.

Let’s get some of our craft supplies up and onto the wall.  A magnetic board is perfect for this.  You will need:

I actually used a variety of magnets because I did not buy enough originally.  Learn from my mistake and be sure to get as many magnets as you have jars.  Either use the adhesive that comes on your magnets or use E-6000 to adhere the magnets to the bottom of the jars.  Apply ribbon to the back of your cookie sheet with E-6000 and allow to dry.  Hang your cookie sheet and apply your jars for organization.  Such a great way to get your craft supplies up and onto the wall.  Plus the magnets make them easily accessible.  I love that the jars have see through lids as well.

Consumer Crafts also sells a variety of craft storage solutions that are perfect for filing away your craft supplies.  I used this card keeper to file away my peel and stick stamps.  Find an organizer the correct size, fill it up, add labels, and you are on your way to an organized craft area.

Speaking of labels, chalkboard makes a wonderful label option as it can be changed as your storage needs change.  Get these full size self stick chalkboard sheets to label all of your craft supplies.  They can be easily cut with your electronic craft cutter, die cutter, craft knife, or scissors.  Perfect for any organizing effort so be sure to pick up several packages.

Glass jars are a standard in my organizing efforts.  Consumer Crafts sells so many options that you can find a jar for every organization problem.  From small to large:

So when all else fails, put your craft supplies in a jar.  They will look instantly organized.  The small glass cruets are my absolutely favorite!  They corral those miniature craft supplies in style.

  2. Hello! I would like to add my own spin (no pun intended) to your lazy susan idea.

    I would like the pails to be removable, so I’m thinking of using magnets, (the kind that comes in a sheet and can be cut with scissors) to attach the pails to the lazy susan.

    What do you think?

  3. All great ideas! It feels so good when everything “has a home” in your craft space.

  4. Oh perfect timing – thanks for posting this! We are building a new office/craft room and I could sure use some storage ideas, thanks again!

  5. Fabulous ideas Angie!!
