Day #11 Organization Challenge - Crafter's Corner - Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

Hello Organizing Buddies!! Hope you all had a wonderful ghoulish Halloween!!!

I know many of you who visit this blog are crafters so when I can I will add craft room organization challenges! I'm still working on my linen closet but it's taking a while because I think I'm doing something a little crazy . . .which I do often. I'll explain more about it tomorrow. So far, how are you all doing with folding your sheets? Don't know what I'm talking about? Take a look at Day #10 Organization Challenge. Again, I'll further discuss the linen closet challenge tomorrow. Right now, let's work on our craft room corner.

I don't know about you but a lot of my craft room junk are in a disorganized mess. I have a lot of stuff so it's really difficult to keep track of all of them sometimes. I can get really messy and when I'm really busy, I don't exactly put things away in an orderly fashion. Are you familiar with this problem? Uh-hummm. . .I see you nodding your head. LOL!

Yesterday I was searching through the Internet for a way to organize my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and I found the blog site " Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot" and they had a challenge post on organizing your Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. How appropriate!!! There were several samples and I used one of them.

One of the samples showed a tag swatch set up and I liked that idea. I decided to create a swatch and create a numbering system. I numbered the embossing folders, the swatch, and the file dividers using stickers.

I ran the tag through the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and created a swatch with all the different embossing and as you can see I numbered them. I then put all of the embossing folders in a wicker basket. I don't have a plastic container that'll fit the folders so the wicker basket will do for now. It's temporary. When I have the chance, I'll go hunting for a different container for them. One of the samples on the Cuttlebug challenge site uses a lunch pail file sort of container. If I can find a lunch pail that will fit all of my folders, I may use that system instead.

Okay. . .today's challenge is to organize your Cuttlebug embossing folder so that they'll be compact and easy to find and put back into their proper place. You may use any system you want.

If you already have a great system in place, why not share it with us. Send me a photo of your organized CB embossing folders and I'll post it on this blog! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. . .don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the completion of our linen closet challenge!!!!
