quick tips for the craft room

First of all, if you are lucky to have a separate room in your house that is just for crafts...you are really lucky! Most of us, myself included, have to share part of another room, an office, or simply the kitchen table! But, no mater where your craft room is located, it can still be organized. I think you will be surprised at how much more enjoyable it is to do sew, craft or scrapbook in an organized space. Here are some tips to get you started!
  • A used shoebox can be covered with scraps of wallpaper, ribbons, or scrapbooking paper and be utilized as a holder for cords and chargers for all your electronics. The box could also be used to hold extra office or craft supplies.
  • Used and cleaned cans and bottles could be used as pen and pencil holders on a desk (can also be decorated).
  • Used baby food jars or an old fishing tackle box can be used as holders for the little bits of ribbon and embellishments used in scrapbooking and other hobbies.
  • A basket can be used to hold receipts (make sure you keep all receipts needed for tax purposes or extended warranties).
  • An old tackle box can also be used as a sewing kit (many compartments for thread, needles, scissors, and any other needed supplies.
  • A wooden dowel or paper towel holder can be used to hold ribbons.
  • Use two eye hooks and some heavy-gauge wire to hang a pad of paper or strips of fabric.
  • Simple clear plastic bins can be used to hold and separate different craft items such as yarn, fabric, painting supplies, flower-arranging supplies, or needlepoint.
  • Cut most of one side out of a cereal box (cover with decorative paper) and it can be used as a magazine holder.
