My collection of Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug is growing, so today I am showing you my storage solution for them.
The altered tin is 6 1/4" wide, x 5" tall 4". The book plate is by Basic Grey.
I have made index sheets that are embossed with each folder and indexed using the round tab punch. The index sheets are 1/4 sheets of CS. I was making them pretty and attaching the tabs with brads at one point, but I am now just stapeling them to the tops to save time. The cooresponding folder is filed behind each index sheet. The tin holds 24 folders & index sheets and is quite snug now. I am working on tin #2 and will categorize them by style when done.
I just got the latest embossing borders and wasn't sure how to store them at first. This is working for me right now. I just took a scrap of white CS slightly smaller than 1/4 sheet and slid the folders over the CS. They are held in place with binder clips. I label each folder when making labels for my index tabs for the folders so I can quickly reference the name when uploading details for a project and to file them quickly too.
My little folders are stored much the same way. I fashioned sleeves by cutting up business card page protectors and securing to CS with eyelets. The outside ends are open to slide the folders in.
You have seen how I store my folders, now it's your turn to find a system to make it work for you. Get organized!
