Some of you may remember my previous post on organizing my flair buttons. Well, once again, I was in need of a "make-over." I still like the old system because it did not take up much room but my flair collection grew. So, time for a change. Click here to see my old flair storage. You may find it's all you need. :)
Back in August 2013, zulily.com had these wonderful make-up carousels on clearance. They are called the Nifty Home Products Makeup Carousel. They come in many different colors. I purchased white for my girls and pink for myself. They are rather pricey (~$35) but on zulily, I was able to get them for $19 each. They are also available on amazon.com in various colors but still pricey (~$31). Click here to see them on amazon.com.
Anyway, this little carousel has turned out to be the best little storage piece. It has a lazy susan base so it rotates, and it is about 8" high. One downfall is that there is only 2 1/2" between the upper and lower storage areas. Thankfully the boxes I use still fit but at an angle in the bottom. This works great for me but something for you to be aware of if you buy one of these. I not only have my flair stored in here but also:
I have a bunch of the Stampin' Up Stamp and Supply Boxes. They measure 5.25" x 4.25" and come in a package of 10 (item no. 134678). They are actually on clearance now for $1.99 for a 10 pack! These boxes are great organizational boxes, and they offer them in several sizes. Anyway, these boxes fit perfectly into the carousel so I decided they would also be perfect for my flair buttons and dividing them into categories. I ended up using 7 boxes and have divided my flair buttons into these categories:
*Dates and Days
This really has worked great for me. I have had them like this for several months now, and I am really enjoying them stored this way. I hope this also helps give you some ideas too. Happy organizing!
