I do not think I have ever shared my template storage with you. Well, they have been hanging in alphabetical order on my Clip-it-Up for a long time. Here is my old template storage:
While that served its purpose, my Clip-it-Up is across the room, and it was a pain to clip the templates back up when I was done. I also found as I used my templates that I was just stacking them on my art journaling table instead of putting them back away. Lazy yes, I know. So, I decided to put them in an old CTMH storage box that I was not using. Here is what I did.
First, I put them all back in alphabetical order so that they are easy to find instead of going through a messy stack on my desk. Then I just put them in the back of the storage box. I then made dividers using heavy cardstock, my vintage typewriter, and my WRMK Envelope Punch board. Next, I added a bit of fabric tape to dress up the dividers a bit. I needed this to be fast and not necessarily fancy. I also know that the dividers will probably get messy from my painted hands, etc. This is my messy table for sure!
And no, that's not salad dressing on my table. LOL! It's a jar of vinegar and water that I use for cleaning. And the misters in the front of the box are by Lindy's Stamp Gang. I have all of my other misters in a storage unit but these are ones I am going to be using soon. The front of the box is perfect for holding mists too as you can see.
I do leave box open as the templates are too high to close the lid. In the back of the lid I have actually put a larger template that is an old Tupperware napkin ring. It's too big to put in the box but works great laying in the back of the lid. I generally only by 6x6 templates so this storage works great for me (for now). :)
And lastly if you have kept up with me for this long—because I kept a messy stack of my templates on my desk for so long, I found that I had purchased duplicate templates. So, today I will be giving away two brand new duplicate templates that I found I had—The Crafter's Worship Mini Bricks and Mini Fence Frame. These are both 6x6 and work great on layouts, cards, art journals, anything!
