5 Easy Ideas for Storing Your Stickers

Organizing your sticker stash doesn't have to be a sticky situation. Thanks to these five simple approaches, it's a breeze to find an orderly system that works for your unique scrapbooking style.

1. On-the-Wall Container: Store your stickers in a decorative rack that you can hang above your creative workspace. This approach will keep the creativity at your fingertips without interfering with your desk space.

 

2. DIY Sticker Spinner: Finding the sticker sheet you need is just a twist away with this organized approach. Turn a paper-towel holder into a rotating sticker station by first sliding pieces of sturdy cardstock into 8.5" x 11" sheet protectors (for added stability) and then inserting your stickers. Once your page protectors are loaded, attach them together with binder clips, and slide those clips around the center of your paper-towel holder.

         

Bonus Idea: If premade is your preferred method when it comes to finding organization solutions, check out the Clip-It-Up by Simply Renee

 

3. File-Folder Organization: You don't have to be a legal eagle to find the benefits in accordion-file folders. They're an ideal choice for stashing your stickers. For one, they open up nice and wide, giving you easy access to the contents. Also, they can quickly be tucked away when you're in between craft happenings. Plus, if you like to scrap on the go, they're a wonderful grab-and-go solution!

4. Basket Case: Add a decorative touch to your creative space that doubles as organization with a stylish basket. Whether you have one basket for all of your stickers or you choose to keep separate baskets for separate sticker themes, this approach will keep your collection out where you can see it and make the most of it!

5. On the Wire: Maximize your closet space, and hang your favorite sticker sheets across a curtain wire. This will leave you more shelf space for larger and heavier items, and you can just slide the stickers aside whenever you need to access the rest of your closet-contained goodies.

I have tried several different ways to organize my stickers.  I had them in 8-1/2 by 11 page protectors and then in ring binders but they were getting too heavy.  Now I have them in plastic baskets and then I have them organized by theme with a divider to seperate each theme.  I have four baskets (yes, I am a over-purchaser!) lol  On the end of the basket I have a cute file label with a list of themes in that basket.  They are on a shelf that is easy to reach.  I think this is my best way I have come up with.

I would really like to do the DIY spinner, but first I have to find room to put it.  I am running out of counter top space.  I have mine in a long basket with a lid.  Within the basket is a plastic file folder with stickers seperated into catagories.  I also have some with each of the projects that I have yet to do.  I am almost as bad about buying too many embelishments as I am about paper.

I have been using a folder file box but find that I was 'forgetting' to use my stickers since they were tucked away.  I was medically retired in 2004 and so now my husband is the only bread winner in our home, so frugal scrapbooking is my hobby.  I was so excited to see the idea of the 'paper towel holder', as they are a dime a dozen in the thrift stores and this option will put my stickers 'front & center' on my scraptable!  Thank you so much for this awesome idea!

With placing tabs I will be able to find what I need faster, without pulling everything out.

Thank you whoever for the idea.

I use the Clip-it-Up for my miscellaneous stickers since they can be used on virtually any page.  For stickers that I only have a handful of such as for boy scouts I keep in a plastic bag and put it in a 12 x 12 accordion file along with the themed paper.  Most of my stickers are in PBS zippered sticker binders.  These are arranged by theme.   I don't always have time to file my stickers so I also have a 12 x 12 carrying case that stores as a drawer.  I label this drawer "homeless stickers" since they are not yet in there proper place.  The carrying case is easy to take to crops.

I so loved the sticker spinner made from the paper towel holder!  I can't believe I never thought of that myself!  I will send photos of another "re-use" organizer I made from a retired plastic broom handle.  (They just unscrew from the broom and you can use them for any number of things.)  I pick up these inexpensive brooms from a store where everything is a dollar.  I have a menagerie of dogs and cats, so when they (the brooms, not the animals) are too covered in hair to wash anymore, I toss the broom piece and re-use the handles.  For a dollar investment, I have even removed the brand new broom to put in my trunk for quick clean-up and re-purposed the handle as a curtain rod!  I promise to send photos with some of the re-purposing tips!

Wow!  I felt like slapping my forehead when I saw the DIY sticker holder on the paper towel holder.  I showed it to my husband right away, and he wondered why I couldn't put it in a binder then.  I suppose you could, and they'd be organized the same way in page protector sheets, but they wouldn't be as accessible.  I don't think any binder would hold all the ones shown in the photo either.  I currently store my stickers in accordian files, but they're in two sizes, one set for about 5 x 7 sheets and one for 6 x 12 sheets, so they're still divided.  It would be great to put them together.  I'm seriously considering imitating this idea.  Thanks!

That DIY spinner is a fantastic idea!!  What a great way to organize and be able to easily see your stash as well as providing a pleasant piece to look at for those who like their stuff out!

I love the paper towel holder idea!  I like that you can see everything you have.  Right now I have all my stickers laying in a box and have to look through everything to find what I need.

Love the paper towel holder idea, I have a file folder drawer full of stickers in folders and tend not to use them very often.  I think if they were more easily accessible, I would use them.

I have 2 of the DIY spinners made of paper towel holders.  One just for my alphabest and the other for stickers and bling.  One think I'll suggest it to put a piece of office grade card stock in each one of the page protecters.  It keeps your protectors from flopping around if your sticker aren't the entire width of the protector

Currently using some in the basket & some in the manila folder type thing....think I need to may a DIY sticker spinner.  How cool is that?

Great ideas.  I thought I had way too many stickers but it looks like I'm in good company!  I currently keep my stickers in binders in protector sheets by category by alpha (baby, boys, children, cowboys,dance, etc). They are getting kinda lumpy and heavy so I think I'm going to try the DIY spinner (paper towel holder) for stickers that I use the most which are stickers with words, phrases or sentiments. I keep my alpha stickers in a big wide drawer.  Thanks!

I've been using the accordian file system for almost a year and I love it.  I went an extra step and purchase pretty (and heavy duty) file folders from Staples.  My stickers are in the folders that are in the accordian.  That way I can pull the whole file for that one particular project (like Spring, or Baby) to keep on my desk while I'm working and put the accordian file neatly where it belongs.  I don't have to worry about the tiny stickers getting lost or messed up either.

All 5 are good ideas but I have a LOT of stickers! I tried the accordian file folder method and that didn't work. I ended up with 2 hanging file bins from Creative Memories that stand square and the tops zipper off. I have them organized by theme.  This works great for me! You could do the same thing with plastic hanging file holders.

I like stickers. I don't use much because I don't have a visual of them. I currently use the accordian style. I'm going to try the Paper Towel holder and/or the curtain style.

I loved the article about storing sticker sheets.  Currently, I've been keeping them in a plastic case, but out of sight, out of mind.  I liked the DIY paper towel holder.  It's cheaper than some of the specialized storage solutions for scrapbooking and stamping products and  standard size page protectors are easy to find though I'd recommend getting the acid free variety not protectors from an office store unless they specify that they are acid free.  I've used regular page protectors to save articles and instructions and had words come off the page and onto the page protectors.  Now, I use scrapbook type acid free page protectors.  Thanks for a great article.

My stickers are in multiple drawers and brain storming is easier when you can see everything you have.   The towel holder will be definite addition as soon as I can rearrange some shelf space.  I'm thinking a

piece of card stock in each page protector and a photo adhesive to hold the long narrow sticker and smaller pieces from falling.

******************************** HEY LADIES - READ ME PLEASE!!**************************************

I LOVED SEEING THAT PAPER-TOWEL SPINNER BECAUSE I DID COME UP WITH THAT VERY IDEA SOME TIME AGO!! ;)

ONE *HUGE* ISSUE, HOWEVER...

EVEN IF EVERY SLEEVE HAS A PC OF CARDSTOCK, THAT'S NOT THE PART WITH THE PROBLEM YOU WILL SOON DISCOVER - IT'S THE ABILITY TO KEEP THE PAGES UPRIGHT *AND* TURNABLE - AND SO IT'S THE RINGS THAT ALSO NEED STA BILITY!  MY FIX?

1. EITHER USE SERIOUSLY STURDY CHIPBOARD/CARDBOARD, OR FIND THIN WOODEN SLATS - NARROW & THIN, (LIKE THE DIVIDERS USED BETWEEN SCRAPBOOK PAGES TO COMPENSATE FOR BULKY PAGES...)

2. CUT SLATS TO 11-12" TALL.

3. DRILL 3 HOLES in every slat BIG ENOUGH TO ACCOMODATE THE BINDER RINGS, SPACED THE SAME AS THE HOLES IN YOUR PAGE PROTECTORs.

4. JUST LIKE BETWEEN SCRAPBOOK PAGES, INSERT A STABILIZING SLAT BETWEEN EVERY FEW PAGES, BASED ON THE WEIGHT IN YOUR PAGES & BULK...

5. THEN INSERT THE RINGS THROUGH IT ALL & SLIDE IT ON YOUR TOWEL HOLDER!

TWO MORE ISSUES OF ANNOYANCE:

A. USING 8.5X11" PAGES (OR EVEN 12X12"!) IS A CHALLENGE BECAUSE THE BASE OF A TOWEL HOLDER IS NEVER 18" OR MORE IN DIAMETER!!... SO THE PAGES FLOP AROUND (AND PUT EXCESSIVE PRESSURE ON THE PAGE PROTECTOR'S HOLES! IT'S NOT A PERFECT FIX, BUT I TOOK A SHALLOW BOX, 14x14x2-3"deep, cut a hole in the center the same diameter as the  paper towel rod, and slid it over the rod, upside down. So it covered the existing (usually round) base, and created a much larger one! You could do the same with a round piece of wood w/a hole drilled in the center - or even pick up the round cardboard bases used under cakes, by cake decorators... Put two or three together for stability, drill the hole, slide them over the rod & down onto the base & voila! MUCH improved base stability for the full length of your page protectors!! The round cake-base cardboard comes in a veriety of sizes too btw - and can be bought at many dollar stores, most party supply stores, etc. They're white too (usually) so prettier than a box!(Keep in mind that you are adding length with the diameter of the rings too... So page protectors for 8.5x11" paper may end up needing a round base that is 20" in diameter or more!! Think: Two page protectors, one on one side of the circle - the 2nd on the opposing side=17.5", plus 2, 3, or 4" rings, plus the piece of each page protector with the holes in it, another 1/2 - ea= 1", that's 20-22"... This thing takes up a BIG footprint!!

(An alternate if you don't have a 20"+ circle to devote to this method is to use the 5x7" Junior Scrapbook page protectores & make a smaller version of this item!! It's definitely easier to work with - though all of the challenges I've listed here do still apply...)

B. Last issue - sorry I'm so long-winded... You may have figured out that I have a LOT of stickers of EVERY type - and I take my storage SERIOUSLY!! So - for me, weight IS an issue, I have multiples of many sticker sheets... Therefore, combined with the above two fixes, I also used Large Grommets (think camping supply/hardware dept), or as we may know them: XL eyelets, and reinforced every hole on the page protectors. (ENSURE your Loose-Leaf-Rings will fit thru the eyelets before you do this!) But if you use stickers a lot, then the continued flipping & turning & flopping of the pages WILL become an issue if you don't do something like this to reinforce those holes.

In closing, let me say this...

The LARGER the Binder Rings (like the ones that come with the Ribbon-Ring, for example, generally 3"), the MORE pages you can stuff on there! However you will have even MORE floppiness then - so the wooden slats become REALLY important!!

Also - if you plan to use 8.5x11" page protectors - just spring for the extra $$ and buy the heavy duty ultra-clear type. They cost more, but they WORK, and they last. You will HATE it soon enough if you use the thinner-grade pages... I'm the Page Protector Queen - please trust me when I say I have tried them ALL!!!

OKAY - Those are my perfection suggestions...

I'd love to hear from any of you who may have comments or suggestions that are simpler, or make more sense (*gasp!*) than these... All I can tell you is that with this particular invention you Will Only Get Out of It What you Put Into It!!

(((IFYI - I'm actually working on one more possible improvement, a method to suspend the top rings, or the top of each slat, between the top of the ppr towel holder post & the screw-on topper/knob that most come with... I think I've settled on a wide metal disk (proportionate to the size of the binder rings), with a small hole drilled in the middle. I may sandwich the disk between the top of the post & the screw-on knob... I suppose I could drill additional holes around the outside edge of the disk & suspend the top binder rings from multiple zip ties, or chain, or even string I suppose (this is if the wooden slats are not in use...) If using the wooden slats, as I do, then I think an additional hole in the very top of each slat (which may need to be a bit taller than 11", in this case) would do the trick, and then either use small s-hooks to connect each slat to each hole in the disk, or again, zip-ties, or string - lots of things would work.   I am considering doing this simply to take part of the weight off of the base of the pages - not all of it - so this would be intended to just barely suspend it all - and would facilitate TURNING the pages much more easily...

HA! That said - I bet a Lazy susan/turn-table underneath would work just as well!!! LOL)))

Think I'll let this go now...

Hope this helps some of you seriously enthused sticker-lovers, in perfecting your new creation! :)

FULL DISCLOSURE:

The extrordinary challenge this presented in perfecting eventually convinced me to just buy 4 of the XL Clip-it-ps, by Simply Renee... I haven't looked back (until now!) And i repurposed my ppr-towel spinner to hold Paper Alpha sheets - which weigh less and get used more.

Darn - another thought would be to store PAPER FLOWERS in this item!!!! OOh - pretty, functional & LIGHTWEIGHT!! HA!!  *Amy trots off to dump out her paper alphas & start playing with flowers...*

I love the storage ideas... especially the DIY spinner, I used to store my stickers in a large tub and kept it under my scrap table and seldom used anything in it... they were organized in large baggies but still seldom used. Seen Kathryn organize hers in a plastic bin,, no baggies and viola!!! I used to bins but they set on top of my large tubs of extra paper and are out in the open and  use them so much more often...

I've tried several different ways as my stash has grown...I like to leave my stickers in their origional packaging and since they come in so many different sizes it's hard to come up with a perfect solution that will be neat and tidy...which is neccessary if you are "OCD" so, my solution is to file them by theme in a storage box...it's wide enough for the long packaging on some stickers and it keeps them all in one place...all I have to do is set the box on my work table and thumb through...thanks for the oportunity to win some more!

I made the DIY Sticker Spinner and I LOVE IT! I used filing folders in the middle of the page protector to give them a bit more stability and use 1 1/2 in binder rings. The only thing is you need a big space where to place it but it is so handy to find your stickers in a heart bit.
