Stencils . . . . some are small, some are tall, some are thick, some are flimsy. Started out with storing the stencils on a Command hook inside the cabinet door. But some stencils do not have a hole at the top for storage so what to do with those? Then some companies sell larger stencils than others... switched from the Command hook to a large file box. But then .... bought some stencils too large for the large file box. Something new had to be figured out but wanted to have one idea and one place to keep all stencil sizes together that would keep them from getting bent or mangled or dusty. . .
Only thing I could think of is a binder with sheet protectors inside. Here is the binder:
Some photos of the stencils inside:
For the Tim Holtz Tag stencils I have two of those per protector sheet:
Can keep holiday stencils together, or store them by manufacturer, or like items. Decided to keep the Tim Holtz Tag stencils together but the other stencils will be like items or by theme. With using the binder I can store that flat or upright. Plenty of room in the binder to add more stencils if I need to and the binder protects the stencils from damage or dust. Plus I bought the binder and protector sheets from Walmart so this is not expensive to put together. At least now all the stencils are together and it is easy to flip through the binder to see what stencils there are. TFL
