Guess what arrived on my doorstep yesterday? Yes, my Scrap 'n Cube Paper Tower! I was SO excited to see the UPS man with his trolley full of 4 boxes! Scrap 'n Cube always packages their products beautifully. Over the past 7 years of ordering from them (gosh has it been that long), I have never had anything damaged!
If you remember, my old paper rack (a Display Dynamics paper rack) crashed and broke a few weeks ago. Here are photos after the crash:
Mind you, I had just unboxed all of my paper and gotten it organized on the paper rack then it all crashed. Here is the messy pile of paper that was left--all 21" of it:
Don't ya just love that old Disney paper? I can't part with it. One day I will get to all of those Disney photos, and that paper may just come in handy. :)
So this morning I have been re-organizing that pile of paper and putting it into my new Scrap 'n Cube Paper Tower. Here are the cubes and floor bases just after I unboxed them yesterday:
There are 4 cubes and 2 floor bases. I got 2 floor bases because I wasn't sure if I will stack all 4 cubes on 1 base or split them up with 2 cubes in 2 separate places in my room each on their own base. That's what I love about Scrap 'n Cube--so versatile, easy to move and rearrange! So many options available for sure! I have moved my room 3 times now in 7 years and rearranged my Scrap 'n Cube each time. It works in EVERY single room! I can't wait to share my full room once it's done.
Anyway, each shelf in each cube will hold about 120 sheets of 12x12 paper which equates to over 720 sheets per storage cube or 2,880 sheets per paper tower! Wow, now I pray I never have that much paper to go through. LOL! For my cubes, I have decided for now to stack the 4 cubes on 1 floor base. Here is how the cubes looked after I stacked them in their new space:
So very sturdy, and this thing will NOT fall down! And here is how they look with my paper put away:
To organize the paper, I always put cardstock on top in "color order."
Then the lower half is patterned paper organized alphabetically by manufacturer. Notice I have two slots left, and a lot of the slots are not full. I am thankful for that!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed seeing a part of my new room with my new paper tower. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings to each of you!
