Quick Tip | Packing Your Embellishments Part 2

Time for another quick packing tip!

Last time, I shared that small bags were a life saver for keeping all your embellishments together when you have to pack them up. Today, I thought I would show this same idea from another perspective.

When I packed up my scrapbook room, I also used these small bags to keep a selection of embellishments. My supplies are going to be packed up for months, so I held back enough to keep me going for awhile.

To make it easy to store them, I bundle all the bags up in a Rubbermaid latching box. I can slide this into the closet easily and bring it out anytime I’m searching for embellishments.

I’m not thrilled to be working from limited supplies, but I can tell that I have been using up my stash more efficiently. I don’t always find exactly exactly what I need, but there’s enough here that even if it’s not perfect, I can figure out how to make it work.

For my next packing tip post, I’ll be sharing how I packed up my 12 x 12 paper. Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by today.

  4. Packing the 12 x 12 will be interesting as paper is soo heavy!
    I like the idea of putting everything in its own bag. Last time I threw it all in a box. And it was a chore to unpack!

  5. What a great post! I love seeing how other people organize their supplies. I like these posts because we will be moving soon, but I live in a very small space so I have to fit a lot in a little spot. 😀 Can’t wait to see your next post!

  7. Fab ideas – I keep rearranging my stash at the moment, so I don’t keep having those ‘I didn’t know I had that’ moments and can actually use it all 🙂

  9. Great idea. You really had to plan for this didn’t you? 🙂 I guess the bright side is like you said, you are using up your stash. It would be interesting to try this out if one wasn’t moving. You know, pack your stuff up, just to use it. Hmmm…
