Most of you know from my creations that I LOVE flowers and leaves. I really have an obsession. Well, I used to keep them in two drawers of my Scrap 'n Cube; however, I have recently discovered that I have flowers buried below other flowers, and I am not using everything wisely. In fact, I almost placed an order for some larger leaves only to find out I had a bunch buried. So, I set out to reorganize them.
First, I purchased two sets of four Plano Stowaway boxes from Amazon for a total of eight boxes. I then began organizing my flowers by color. I love these boxes because the dividers can be put wherever you need them. That means you can have a large section, small section—any size that you need. As you can see in the photos below that I have many different sized sections.
Each of my eight boxes are arranged this way, and these boxes can accommodate many different sized flowers and leaves. These boxes also work for wood veneers and other embellishments. There are all sorts of possibilities. :)
Once I was done organizing, I labeled the end of each box with washi tape. The color of washi tape on the end matches the color of flowers inside the box. If there are two different colors of flowers in the box, then there are two different colors of washi tape on the end of the box. :) Makes it super easy to grab a box with the flowers I need. They then stack on my new shelving unit which I think I will share about next week.
Most of my flowers are purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts as their prices are incredible and shipping is cheap even though they are shipped from England! Their customer service is great too!
And before I close today, I have decided to give away some of these beautiful flowers to one blessed reader. All you have to do is leave a comment here by Thursday, March 7, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, and I will announce the winner in next Friday's organizational post. Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!
