Today's organization feature from My Favorite Things is card stock! There are so many ways you can organize your card stock that it can be quite overwhelming to get started. Here's a look at how I organize mine:
If you look closely, you'll notice that I have some tidying up to do. I have been collecting card stock for nearly 18 years, and although I've cleared out a lot, I still have a rather extensive collection. 🙂 I found these great Fellowes Literature Sorters at an office supply store many years ago. There are three of them lined up on my shelf with a grand total of 72 slots. …and yet I still have multiple colors in some slots…craziness.
Here's a closer look at one of the sections. I labeled each section when I first got them with some seriously stubborn labels, that I've had quite a time removing. So, as you can see, I still need to properly label these sections. It drives me bonkers not having them properly labeled.
When my beautiful My Favorite Things card stock arrives, it comes in plastic re-sealable bags that are labeled with the color name.
I prefer a sturdier pocket for my card stock; so I remove it from the bags, and put it into these vinyl shop ticket holders, which I purchased from HERE. I cut off the top of each pocket where the pre-punched holes are.
I used my fabulous Brother P-Touch Labeler to create new labels for each vinyl pocket. I then loaded in the appropriate card stock, and filed it onto my shelves.
I do still have quite a bit of 12×12 card stock and patterned papers, which I store in these wonderful hanging file drawers. The drawers are designed specifically for 12×12 files. These were custom made for me by an amazing cabinet maker that my hubby knows. However, Michael's sells something similar HERE.
I hope you've been inspired to get your card stock organized. For more inspiration, hop on over to the MFT Blog for links to the other designers blogs, as well as for your chance to win! Check out today's prize package:
