Ideas To Reuse, Recycle Suitcases For Craft Storage

Old, vintage suitcases are beautiful and can be a great idea for craft storage. Especially if you don't have a lot of space as I do in my apartment. I found some awesome faux crocodile? silver suitcases in a discount store and love the fact that I can leave them out in the open. I use them to store my spools of ribbon (of which I have too many lol)

Here are some other cool examples of how you can turn a suitcase into storage:

I also love these ideas on how to display your suitcases.

Inexpensive Sticker Storage - Craft Room Organization Tip

Just like any crafter, I am always on the look out for ways to store my craft supplies but still keep them handy (I hate having to dig for stuff). I have always wanted to have a peg board type system for my stickers but have never gotten around to purchasing one.

Recently, I was walking around my local Family Dollar store and came across these hooks from 3M and had an ah-ha moment. They will be perfect for holding stickers and easily removable - great since I am currently renting. I am mainly going to use them to hold the stickers and other light weight supplies for the projects that I am currently working on.

Here are a few other great tips that I saw around the web. Also make sure to check out my Craft Organization Board on my Pinterest page.

1) Hanging from a shower curtain rod. Genius!!

2) This system uses S-Curtain hooks and hangs them from a wire basket. I was thinking of doing this to hang items from the wire shelves in my craft room.

3) Another version of the curtain rod, except this is a circular towel bar. Very pretty. Think how several of these would look on the wall holding stickers, scissors, etc. Would almost be like art.

4) Hanging wire baskets that are normally used to hold file folders or other office supplies. Make sure to check out the source link for more great ideas from the Creating Keepsakes Blog page.
