I am always excited when I find a storage solution that works for me. I have to have things very easy or I don’t keep up on the system. They make embossing folder binders. I tried that. It was too much effort for me to flip through the binders to find the folder I wanted, (I needed three binders for all of my folders) and even more effort for me to place the folders back into the pockets in the binder. Some people love the binders! I am too lazy for them. This clear Iris box system was a winner for me. And since embossing folders are all the same standard size, this system can work for you too – follow along as I show you how to organize embossing folders!
How to organize embossing folders supplies:
First you will want to separate your embossing folders. I had four sizes. Well, technically the first item isn’t an embossing folder, it was my Easy Frames, Embossing Frames. I still wanted to store these with my folders. They fit into the box too- in the same slot as my 5″ border folders.
The Iris Card Keeper comes with six plastic dividers. The box itself has pre-made slots for the dividers to slide into. For this how to organize embossing folders post, we will be using two of the plastic dividers.
The first divided area is for the 5″ border folders, and the Easy Frames. The box dips down slightly on both sides in front, it was a perfect place for my border folders to stand upright inside the box.
The next size I organized was my larger sized (5×7″) embossing folders. I used a Sharpie marker to identify all of the patterns on my embossing folders, so I could easily flip through them, and not have to pull them up out of the box to see what the pattern was. The larger folders are going to be lying in the box horizontally, so mark them on the side.
Next up was my large stash of A2 sized embossing folders. These will be placed into the box vertically, and need to be marked that way.
These fit perfectly into the largest divided area of the box. You can fit 80-90 embossing folders into this divided area. EIGHTY TO NINETY. I currently have 55. I have a lot of room to fill in this box! I guess I will have to buy more folders…
I used a simple DYMO label strip.
I hope this how to organize embossing folders post helps you too!
