Had seen a video by Julie from the Paper Pixie on YouTube featuring some of her favorite storage tips. The one that I used was for her 6x6 card stock storage. She uses the Avery Elle Extra Large Clear Pockets to store her 6x6 card stock so off to Amazon I went and I bought a package of two of these extra large envelopes. Like she suggests in her video she cut the clear pockets down to a height/size she wanted to use. I have cut my clear pockets so they are 7 inches high and that is a good height for me.
I already had all my 6x6 card stock paper pads sorted and in baskets but even with them sorted and labeled I still was not using them as I should have. With her system it only made sense to re-sort and store my 6x6 pads her way. First I cut some of the clear pockets to the 7 inch height I wanted. Then I tore out all the papers from each pad, keeping the papers from the same pad in the same envelope. I did not need the front and back covers to the paper pads using this storage system and it saves a lot of space for me. I began with the pads I have for BOO Day, then onto Autumn, and, of course, Christmas.
Awhile ago I had decided to separate all holiday dies from my die collection so that they were all together for holiday projects but mainly so they were not using up storage space for my non-holiday dies. I keep all my BOO Day dies in plastic baskets on sale at Hobby Lobby, (I also have baskets for my Chirstmas dies), and I used the We R Memory Keepers Tab punch board for my tabbed dividers:
I have the baskets on a shelf and I store the new 6x6 paper pads in their new clear pockets altogether next to these baskets on the shelves. The nice thing using these clear pockets for storage I can also keep scraps of this card stock in the clear pocket with the rest of the matching card stock. Here is a photo to show these clear pockets with the 6x6 card stocks/scraps inside:
Emma, from MCT, has a video she made showing her assembling her Coffin Treat Box and her hints and tips for assembly. I did use clear sheet packaging to put behind the spider web cut out on the lid of this box as she did. I did use her tip to use Glossy Accents to adhere the clear sheet behind the spider web cut out on the lid to keep candies or paper shred from falling out of the box. Had never used Glossy Accents for that before and it did the trick and does not show much:
