You could use a storage box (photo box, recipe box or similar) with index cards and file them alphabetically according to their folder names.

The only problem that I had with this system is for eg. I was looking under "D" for dots when in fact the folder name was "Seeing Spots". So I renamed most of my folders so they make sense to me BigGrin

I use the 9L Really Useful Box that I got at Staples. It holds a ton of of folders even the 5x7 ones (which I seem to have a lot of too).
http://www.staples.com/R...les-Clear/product_673234

I had to get a 2nd one as this one is full after this sale. I have them stored by what the image is - Swiss dots - under dots, Circles - under circles, Frames - under frames regardless of that type of frame they are. The hard ones are the M-Bossilities as they are double sided with different images on each side. Those I do a cross reference for myself.

I also have one of the black folders for when I want to take my folders with me to crops. They do hold quite a bit, but I found them hard to get in and out. I have been trying to get the bigger size but can't find a good price that is in stock.


Side note: I use the 4L boxes for my cards.

Cool I store mine in a jetmax (Recollections) 4-dr cube. I only use one drawer...





The large folders are to the right
I have a floral foam block in the back holding them upright and as I add to my collection I just trim the foam block

I store mine in my JetMax drawer (the 2 drawer cube). I use the Post It Filing Tabs that are repositionable for the names and it makes it easier for me to find them. I have them alphabetically by sets.

I have done the same as Scrappy_Vee. Use one of the photo boxes from Michael's & JoAnn's. It also fits the few 5 x 7's I have too. It's the most inexpensive and works great for me. You could give it a try and if you didn't like it you could always use the box for storing something else. I mainly have done it this way because I don't have the money to spend on a lot of stuff these days.

Glad you asked...I've been looking for a new way to store mine too. I did get the large zippered folder made to store these (half price) recently, but I have more than it holds and it is pretty tight pockets. I like to leave mine in the original packaging, but soon realized what a pain it was to take them out and then put them back. Ken, I was originally thinking about a drawer storage...why is that not working for you? I may need new jetmax now. Thanks for the suggestions in this thread.

Hi!
You can store them at my house, LOL!!!



I have mine in a drawer, I have those older, tall Iris carts from Costco and they all fit in one drawer, stored on their sides. All my folders have their names written on them with a permanent marker, and if they part of a set (like Once Upon a Princess), I added that too. I used From My Kitchen and made index card dividers and labeled them by theme, Asian, Animals, Floral, Christmas, etc.... I have over 100 now


I got this idea from another crafter. I made tags (the large Sizzix Tag) out of solid scrap paper, and embossed each tag with a different folder. I labeled the tags, and now I have a quick visual of which folders gives which look. I can use the tags to see which design works best. I ended up with 2 rings of tags because of all the folders. Also the tags are arranged on the rings in the same order as in the filing system.

All of these ideas are great if you never need to take you folders anywhere, but the majority of my papercrafting is done at all day or weekend crops so I need portable storage. I've recently started using a CD binder for all of my A-2 embossing folders. It's about the same size as a scrapbook and holds 208 A2 folders. The only downside to this is it won't hold the 5x7's or 12" strip embossing folders. I have them in a seperate container. Works great for me.

Thanks for the tip. I had one of the old cuttlebug storage folders with an extra set of A2 pages, but it's not enough and they don't make them anymore. Right now I'm using 3 of the Really Usefull Boxes, but they take up alot of space, especially since I have most of my folders still in their original packages. But, this sounds like it might work out better. I might just use the 5x7 binder for all my folders. And I might just take back all those A2 cuttlebug folders I just got from JoAnns and get the 5x7 folders that Darice has. That way I can make larger cards.

I can't remember who gave me this idea about a year ago ... someone on Cricut MB or maybe on a blog site -- but this is my organization for my embossing folders.

It is helpful for me to see what an embossing folders looks like embossed on cardstock; therefore, making it easier for me to select a design for a card. My tags with the folders embossed are color and number coded for ease of use in finding the folder I want to use.

I use Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge, Pg. 71, the Roly Poly cut with one hole, cut at 4" for each tag. You can get 2 tags cut from each 8-1/2 x 11" piece of cardstock paper. You will be embossing a tag for each of the folders you have.

For organization, I use Color Coded Stickers as follows: Green for Christmas/Winter; Pink for Valentine's Day/Anniversary; Orange for Halloween/Thanksgiving/Fall; Purple for Easter/Spring; Yellow for every other occasion. For each colored stack, I begin with the #1 and go on to 2, 3, etc. If there is an embossing folder with a coordinating border, I number them 1a & 1b, etc. For instance, if I am embossing one of the tags with a Christmas folder, I would use 2 green stickers -- I would place one of the green stickers with a number on the embossing folder and the other green sticker with a corresponding number on the corresponding embossed tag.

For storage of embossing folders, I use a plastic Sterilite box (or boxes depending on many folders I have). The box is 5-1/2H x 10-1/2L x almost 6-1/4"W. Keeping the embossing folders in numerical order makes the folders easy to find. I store the embossed tags on rings and keep them handy to refer to in my cardmaking or other projects.

Note: Keep extra blank tags handy for those extra folders that you will "just have to buy"!!

Nilda posted a great idea a couple of years ago that I use! I got a card keeper box that fits all of my folders, even the 5x7 size. I need a new box now too though! Between a bunch of Darice folders I got on clearance at Pat Catan's and the ones I got here during the sale I am out of room!

Anyone have any clever ideas for storing the small folders? (The ones that come 4 to a package) or the border folders?

I found 3 ring binder inserts for photos, they are top loading-2 per side.
I then used the large 4in/3ring binder.

It slides into any tote or even shopping bag to haul to crops.

I have the folders sorted by holidays and/or design type.

I never bothered to label them because they move around so much and I have a general idea where or what section holds each type.

I keep the most often used folders in the front.

problem with this system is I am about to out grow it and I have not looked for additional inserts.

I will prob look into the cd file holder someone mentioned. That may be easier to expand with and most of those zip closed.

sorry no pics

Like most of you who took advantage of the Cuttlebug folder sale. I too have been a bit overwhelmed with what to do. I do not have a great deal of space for storage and I am not particularly fond of having everything out for everyone to see. I like things neat and organized. My solution originally started with a card box but I quickly out grew that, so I went back to Michaels and what I found was one of the large decorative boxes with a hinged lid on it (where they have the hat boxes). I also took one the larger folders with me to make sure it would fit. I have it sectioned off in 3 sections that further need to be sectioned. It is also large enough to hold the extra long plates I ordered as well. I have just about 200 folders in this box and best of all I can put it on the dresser in the room and have it look nice.

Hobby Lobby has some 5x7 photo albums and refill pages that are inexpensive and portable. I might just do that. It would make it easier to keep track of each folder and should also be a little easier to store. They usually have a 40% off coupon that'll make it even cheaper BigGrin

I am an embossing folder junky and am very OCD . I have the organizers GracefulGrammar posted the links to but I also made tags for all my folders.

The A2 size folders each have an embossed tag (George and Basic Shapes shift K cut @ 4.5")and they are a different color paper for each brand of folder (Sizzix are kraft, Darice are green, CB are white,etc). The tags are on binder rings by book (books are numbered 1-4). Each ring has tags of each color because the books are arranged categorically. The rings are on a ribbon which hangs near my desk so I can easily flip through them to find a design I want then quickly find which book it's in. I used A2 size paper in the correct colors for any "frame" folder so I can see how the whole design looks vs just a portion.

I know I'm nuts. LOL

I finally found another box at Joann's. It's called "card keeper" and is with the scrapbook storage. I just finished organizing all of my A2 and 5x7 folders.

The tags are on binder rings by book (books are numbered 1-4). Each ring has tags of each color because the books are arranged categorically. The rings are on a ribbon which hangs near my desk so I can easily flip through them to find a design I want then quickly find which book it's in. I used A2 size paper in the correct colors for any "frame" folder so I can see how the whole design looks vs just a portion.

I know I'm nuts. LOL


I've done something similar. Mine are all embossed onto 4x6 paper (I wish I'd made them smaller). I like to be able to see all of my options, not just to have a list of the folder names. I like the idea of color coding! I have tons of Darice, Sizzix, and Quickutz folders.

I have mine in a photo box with the index cards, plus I embossed the image on the index file so I could see what the folder was too, so helpful

I have a combo of things I have mine in a box in individual folders with the embossed image on the outside as well as the name of the folder. I wrote on the actual folder it's real name. And then I have a key ring with a sample of the embossing cut 3x3 and the name written on it. Then everything is in alphabetical order and if I'm in the mood to buy new ones I just drop the ring in my purse so I don't duplicate.
