    Default How do you organise your craft?

    I am looking for new idea's on how to organise craft items.

    What do you do? What have you found works and what doesn't?

    When we move I would like to organise my new space so it's not all piled in boxes under my desk.

    This can be such a pain to keep on top of! I'm a fellow craft addict and can rarely leave the shops without adding SOMETHING to DS's collection! I keep it all organised by buying the cheap clip-sil boxes from Kmart. There's a pack of 20 you can get that has all different sizes, it's perfect for craft storage as there's a size for everything from tiny glue on decos to scrapbooks, paints ect. Then I just keep the different containers in a big storage box, and take things out as I need them.

    Those boxes sound good, I've never heard of them! will have to check them out.

    Right now my stuff is a jungle to go through if I need anything lol.

    All ds craft stuff is in big suitcase. It not very functional, but he does love rummaging around in there. Look at this mum! Oh wow! What's this mum! Worth it just to watch him happily occupied.

    Also, rather than buying craft boxes for beads or embroidery threads from spotlight, get them from the fishing section of Kmart/big w ;-)

    For smaller things I use ziplock bags eg pompoms, paddle pop sticks, stickers. Use boxes for things such as textas, crayons, beads. Folders/plastic envelopes for papers.
    These then go in a box which fit in the cube shelf. I try to always keep things in the same place so the kids know where to find them.
    Stuff I don't want the kids to touch without my supervision gets put in a plastic tub with the lid closed eg paint, glitter, glue.

    I have BIG roller tubs under my bed for knitting, cross stitch, stamping stuff.

    All my quilt fabrics are in nice baskets in the dinning room because I'm working in there at the moment. I need to move them soon because there is too much. I'm thinking of taking over the second bedroom
