Organizing Crafts

Last week, as I was doing my usual blog stalking, I saw a super neat idea for organizing crafts that Mel from Graphics from the Pond shared. She showed how she is now organizing her crafts in an A3 display book and since I had no idea what that was my first thought was "like a scrapbook?! GENIUS!!! why did I never think of that?!"

So when I was on my usual bargain shopping run, I found a scrapbook at Big Lots and it was on clearance! I'm pretty sure it was saying "hey! take me home and blog about me!" so of course I did...
{can you see that clearance sticker?? it says $3.50! score!!!}

Then I made some monthly headers to slide into each pocket {the book came with 10 inserts which is perfect because I teach for 10 months! but you can add more pockets if you need to} and added all of my crafts!

{school is cool craft}

Now they're super neatly organized and easy to find, and don't take up too much space! LOVE!

And since I already made the monthly headers for myself I figured I would share them with you if you wanted to get organized too!

You can find ALL of my crafts for the year in one quick download here! It is on sale for less than $2 per craft! What a steal!

  5. I love this idea and I actually bought some of those scrapbooks for a different project but I am not using them now. I now have a use for them. Thanks!

  6. I store my crafty projects in sheet protectors in a binder. I love these labels, though and may just add them to the monthly dividers inside the binder. Thank you :)

  22. What a great idea for organizing art samples! Mine are currently in 4 small plastic containers....your concept certainly takes up less room so I will be on the lookout for my very own clearance scrapbook! ;)
    Thank for you sharing the free labels and the organizing idea. Every little bit (of organization) helps!!

  23. I love those monthly labels and the scrapbook idea so much!! I have used binders with plastic sleeves in the past, but they just aren't big enough and - - - grrrr - the CREASE happens! THANK YOU for sharing your ideas!!
