And, whatya know. She actually showed up.
After 5 hours of preparation...my embossing folders are now UBER organized (at least the A2 sized ones). They now live in the top drawer of my Ikea gatefold worktable. They fit perfectly. I have them sorted in a way that makes sense to me (more or less).
- I started out by cutting white cardstock into 5" x 6 1/2" pieces for dividers.
- Then, I cut offset tabs into them (by hand).
- One by one, I ran each divider through the Big Shot with its corresponding embossing folder so that I'd have a real-life reference on what it looks like.
- I wrote the name of each folder, its manufacturer, and item # on each divider.
This is how it turned out:
I'm so stinkin' HAPPY!!! I can actually find whatever one I need now!!! And, before you ask....there are 100 folders in there. I counted them....had to. I needed to know how many dividers to make.
I know I know...I have an embossing-folder fetish. Well, a fetish is better than an obsession, amiright?
But, I have an embossing folder for just about EVERY crafty theme and style.
The rest of my embossing folders (large ones, strips, and small ones) are in a smallish plastic tub. There aren't TOO many of those, so they can all live there happily ever after.
