Organizing your Embellishments

Looking for a great way to organize your embellishments?

Design Team Member, Nadine Carlier used the Deflecto Rotating Carousel Organizer to organize her large collection of artificial flowers and leaves. This is visually appealing and really helpful in finding what you're looking for.

Nadine says the Deflecto Rotating Carousel was the answer to all her flower and leaf organization issues. She organizes her flowers by color and takes only the bins that she needs to her workspace instead of having all her flowers on her desk taking up much needed space to craft. The Rotating Carousel comes with 9 bins, three large bins, and 6 small-bins which are great for organizing items all around the house.

Halloween Treat Bar with Deflecto Tilt Bins

If you like Halloween, you're going to love this cute Halloween Treat Bar idea from Design Team Member, Erin Reed.

Erin created a Halloween candy and treat bar for the kids in her neighborhood using Deflecto's Interlocking Tilt Bins. The tilt bins are perfect for helping to sort out items and even better for the kids to see what types of treats and candies there are for them to pick out.

Erin even made sure to add non-food treats for the kids with food allergies.

Paint Storage Solutions with Deflecto Wall Mounting Bars

Paint Storage Solutions with Deflecto Wall Mounting Bars and Stackable Caddy Containers:

When design team member Anita Scroggins decided to organize her ever-growing collection of paints and brushes she used a combination of Deflecto Wall Mounting Bars and Stackable Caddy Containers, great use of her wall space.

Anita mounted four wall mounting bars above and beside the picture ledges used to display her small bottles of paint. To maximize storage, she measured her longest paintbrush and spaced the bars far enough apart so that she would have space for those long brushes no matter where she put them. Anita used a combination of Small, Medium and Large Containers, removing the lids off each one. The containers go on and off the wall mounting bar easily and straight to your work area.

The large container was perfect for storing stencils and accessories.

Fall Wall File Holder

Spruce up your office cubical or craft space with these Fall wall file holders.

Materials Needed:

Take your preferred fabric or cover and cut to size of the wall file. Leave a little extra to fit sides as needed.

Apply cover to the outside of the file holder and wrap around the sides. Tape or hot glue to the inside flap as you go making sure everything is smooth. Cover the entire surface and secure it before cutting the screw holes. It's easier to poke through the fabric with your nail from the wall file to create the hole needed for hanging the holder.

Tip: It was easier to do the sides of the tray first before fixing the front to make sure it was smooth and the fabric would cover the entire surface.

If you used glue, let dry. Once dry, use a credit card to flatten out any lumps that could be on the surface.

Hang the wall file in your space following the manufacturer's instructions! If using tape, you can change out the paper for the different holidays and seasons to really get festive!

Marker Storage Solutions

Happy National Craft Week!

Saturday was National Card Making Day and now we have National Craft Week? Be still my crafty little heart. (Seriously, I thought every week was craft week.) Since we’re talking all things “crafty” this week, I’d like to ask you a personal question.
How do you store your markers?
When it comes to markers, we all have our opinions and preference on which are our favorite. Lately, I’ve been curious about how everyone stores their markers and what works best for you. I started rubber stamping in the mid-'90s and slowly built up a nice collection of Art Markers. Personally, I have been using Tombow Markers for over 20 years and some markers in my collection are almost as old.   

Up until recently, my marker storage system was just about as old as my collection. A wobbly little holder (with a slight lean) and an extra basket for the overflow. It worked, but it wasn’t quite as efficient as I wanted it to be.

Recently, I started doing a lot more cardmaking and using my markers again.

That’s when I started using the Expandable Marker Accordion* from Deflecto. It is the ultimate in marker storage and portability! It has 80 slots that hold markers, but because my Tombow and Marvy markers are skinnier than Copic markers, I can easily put two markers in each slot.

The Expandable Marker Accordion comes with a clear lid that easily snaps in place and a handle that makes it easy to take your markers with you to classes and crops, keeping everything secure.

Depending on your workspace, you can use it in a straight line, a U shape, as a cube or in my favorite, a zig-zag pattern. Whatever combination works best for you and the project that you’re working on.

Let’s talk another option.

Maybe you’re just starting out your marker collection or you need a little more flexibility with your marker storage, you might like Deflecto’s Interlocking Marker OrganizerThis little marker holder can be used solo or because it has an interlocking design it can be connected to additional units, making it perfect whether you use it upright or horizontal.

And the best part, the Interlocking Marker Organizer also fits into the Stackable Caddy Organizer. You can fit six marker organizers into the Stackable Caddy for the Ultimate Grab and Go. So many great options to fit your crafting style.
