We often see questions in our community from members looking for storage solutions for their workspace. Today, we're sharing ideas for storing wood veneer from our Creative Team.
Carissa Wiley : I have a couple of different storage methods for my wood veneer. I have a small craft space, so I like to use wall space to organize my stash. One way I like to store my wood veneer is in small jars. I know that the Ikea spice jars are very popular, but I find them too bulky. I use these small jars that I found at Hobby Lobby to store not only my wood veneer, but other embellishments as well. I use the jars for bulkier items, or for items that I have more of.
If I have less of a particular item, including wood veneer, I like to store them on these Silhouette Advent Calendars in small bead bags. The bags are clipped to the wires on the frame. This works well for all kinds of embellishments, not just wood veneer.
Either way, I like to keep my wood veneer and embellishments close at hand, and out in the open, without them feeling cluttery. Making the containers uniform keeps them from feeling like clutter and makes them more of an art display. I feel like keeping them out in the open allows me to utilize my stash and saves me from digging through drawers. The old saying "out of sight, out of mind" is very true with your crafting goodies. If you love them, find a way to display them and I guarantee that what you can see, you will use.
Loredana Bucaria : I love those tiny wooden embellishment and I lope to add them to my scrapbook layout, cards, mini album or Pl spreads! They give a cool touch and fill empty spaces! Love them and I love to have them immediately available to me so I have organized them by kind (circles, clouds, stars, mixed, cameras, arrows) in a big plastic box with different parts where you can put whatever you want to organize. Moreover I love to have them in little glass bottles that I have recycled from flowers or bought at Ikea in the flowers and plants section :) I immediately see them and I immediately can take and use them :) Perfect to me and to don’t forget what i have in my stuff :)
Geralyn Sy : I store my wood veneers in divided plastic containers I found at the dollar store. I love that the divisions keep the wood veneer shapes organized and I can easily see what I have in my collection without having to rifle through them all!
Nicole Reaves : I keep my wood veneer in old glass baby food jars in the top of my Ikea Raskog cart. Open storage works best for me because I can see what I have (and remember to use them!) and easily access them right next to my desk. This system works great for me since I have limited space in my scrap room. I know I have to empty a jar (whether I use them all, share some with a friend or combine similar styles in one jar) before adding more to the cart.
