I am trying to organize my corner of the room, can you show
or tell me how you store your cuttlebug folders?
Right now mine are in a small milk crate organizer.

I store all my embossing folders(different brands) in a box(by brand) I got from IKEA, the kind made of cardboard(Kassett) that you assemble. It's large enough for all the different sizes. I also made an impression of each folder, put them on a ring and hang it on a hook in my room. When I'm looking for a folder, I check them to see what looks best.

I use a sewing pattern box. I got the idea from Nilda, who used to post here a lot (I haven't seen her in a while.) I found the sewing pattern box at J's.

Here's a link to my blog post.

What a great idea to emboss paper then put on a ring. Thanks for sharing this idea.

I made this ring too and it's great to take shopping in case you forget which folders you already have. (And I've done that.)

I did the ring thing too and have to admit it is a great idea!
I know they sell binder pages for the folders but I didn't want to
invest much into it, I would rather buy a new cart instead BigGrin

I store mine in ordinary ring binders by creating pockets in plastic page protectors. I make the pockets to suit the different size folders I have. I lay out the folders on a page protector, with 2 of the bigger ones fitting horizontally or smaller ones fitting however you like, leaving a bit of room around each one, then mark out a line between each one, insert my small cutting mat into the page protector (so I only cut through the front sheet of the page protector) and cut only along the horizontal lines, with a craft knife and metal ruler - to create a top opening to put folders into the pockets. Then I use a hot knife I got cheap at M's and a metal ruler to follow the drawn vertical lines and just above the cut lines (opening for the pockets) to form the bottom of the pocket above. If you keep the hot tip of the knife pressed down it seals but also seperates the piece, so by touching the hot tip to the plastic every couple of millimetres or 1/4 inch it works best and I do it on a glass craft mat. You need ventilation because of the hot plastic smell. I went to this method because I now have so many I have "theme" folders, eg xmas etc, so it is faster for me to find my folders by flipping through the binders. I did find some divided pocket pages to buy but I started making my own when my need for space dictated I maximise the number I fit per page. I put bright paper scrap pieces inside them to make the design more visible and have 2 per pocket, back to back.

So does everyone toss the packaging for each folder?
Somehow I have obtained (collected) a few (oh so many)
folders/allin1s/diff brands folders. Just love what can
be done with them.
Think I should have a listing made on the computer.
Love the sample on the ring idea, just overwhelmed with

I keep my folders in original packaging at least for now since I don't have a ton
of them yet. That will probably change at some point.

I store mine in a 3inch binder. I bought clear binder pouches at Walmart. I can fit 4 A2 folders per pouch and (2) 5x7 folders in a pouch. It is very handy. I just grab the binder and go. I also use this method for my Spellbinders. I cut 8 1/2 by 11 magnet sheets in half and put them in each pocket. It doesn't take up much space either.

I found a pretty yellow chest of drawers at the thrift shop, long and not really tall. ONe drawer is the right size to put a looong row of the folders in the front and put my metal cuttlebug embossing/cutting plates behind it. i too embossed each one and have them in a plastic photo album with one in each sleeve. Each folder has a number on it so they are filed 1-121 and the sample is numbered in the book, SO I can look thru the book, decided what I want to use, go to that number and find it instantly. And refiling them in the same spot is easy peasy because of the number system. I used round green sticker labels that I got at a flea market a huge roll for a buck. this system works great for me.
I did the same thing with my cricut cartridges. I was given some wire racking that goes in pegboard. Hubby put up one sheet of pegboard and I have four long shelves and two short ones. Each cartridge is numbered with a round green sticker and they are in order. Have a list in a tiny spiral notebook. this way I can get one find it fast, use it and put it back I have 151 cartridges and love being able to see all of them up on the wire racks, for inspiration and have easy access to them, yet they are up and out of the way and not taking up shelf or counter space.

I just reorganized all my embossing folders and cutting dies. I also, created an index of everything that I have. This all started because I couldn't find the right embossing folder for a card! I am posting a picture of the area where all my folders and dies are kept. To see the individual storage area and the indexes, please visit my blog....

Mine are all in an ArtBin container that I found in the embossing folder section of a craft store we have. They fit perfectly, even the 5x7" ones. Has a handle on it too.

http://artbin.com/crafts...APER+CRAFTS&i=6925AB


I take mine out of what they came in, but I *write* the name on it with a sharpie first. I finally created an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of what I have as I have them from Cricut, Darice, Sizzex, etc.

I like the samples on a ring idea; I just got some paint samples & they have a little cut-out for a ring (BEHR paint) and they have the rings there too--for free! Makes a colorful sample set.

Right now all of my folders are thrown into one of those decorative boxes that you can get a Michael's; however I plan on getting baseball card sheet protectors to put the real little ones in and the larger 8.5 x 11" sheet protectors to put the larger folders into.

Super ideas everyone! I love the embossed samples on a ring idea! I created a cut file on my gypsy for my 5 x 7 folders by attaching two rectangles with a file tab at the top. I embossed the front of the cut file with the actual folder and labeled the name on the top tab. I also categorize by color. For example anything with love, Valentine's Day I have in a red CS folder... anything snow... blue... Christmas... green... whatever works best for you...

Do you remember the Crop In Style PSB sticker album. They have all kinds of plastic sheets on a three ring binder inside that you can organize your stickers. I was tired of keeping my stickers in there so I now keep my Cuttlebug embossing folders and metal plates in there. The plastic sheets have such a variety of sizes. I also picked up some plastic baseball card sheet covers - 8x11 1/2. These are just the perfect size for the small folders and I add some of these sheets in with the big sheets if I need more room. The album is big enough to hold a large amount...can be carried to a crop or just stored easoly for at home. Easy to open and see what you have at a glance.

Love the idea of the ring though!! Hope this helps!!
