New Video – Simple Storage on Simple Saturday

I love some great storage ideas – and sometimes the answers are sitting right in front of us.  Today, I’m excited to share a new video with you along with a great suggestion for storing Washi Tape and Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities:

More about Washi Tape Storage.  I picked up some of the awesome die boxes last year when redeeming some of the host dollars I earned on a large order.

While the boxes are intended to be used for Big Shot dies, I like to repurpose things.  I use these stylish, cloth-covered boxes to store notecards (in the Medium Box) and packs of envelopes (in the Large Box).  I have a Small Die Box full of Stampin’ Dimensionals – go figure!  I stumbled across this storage idea while organizing in The Fungeon a couple of weeks ago – I gathered up my current washi tape and tossed them into a Small Die Box – several of them landed on their sides – EUREKA!  They all fit so nicely inside – like a bug in a rug (if you think bugs in rugs are cute – if you are snuggled in a rug, you certainly don’t want a bug in there with you).  Mission accomplished!

Blendabilities.  My storage idea of the Blendabilities stemmed from the fact that I had so many die trays (they come with the boxes) left over from not using the boxes for dies.  My inquisitive mind said, “Brian, do you think you could store Blendies in that tray?  They need to be stored on their side, and you already have the trays…”Tips for Blendabilities Storage, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI keep them in their original cases (trimming off the flaps on the lids) and slide them right into the slots on these trays.  Couldn’t be happier with this solution!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have enjoyed these quick-and-easy tips for storing these great products.

  2. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!! I tried several ideas for my Washi that just haven’t worked out. Brilliant!!

  3. Clever ideas! Thanks for sharing. And you’re so funny! You’re videos are interesting and you surely have a twist for presenting the information in an interesting way! Keep up the good work.

  4. Hi Brian. My mind is blown. As soon as I watched this video I went to my Stampin’ closet and discovered that I have an extra small container!!!! Yeah me! Thanks for the tip! I also think your Blendabilities storage tip is brilliant!

  8. Great ideas, Brian! TFS

  9. What a great way to make the most of our SU storage products!! Thanks for sharing some great storage/organization tips! 🙂

  10. Neat ideas! TFS, Mr. K:)

  11. Thanks for sharing these great ideas! I noticed you said the Blendabilities need to be stored on their side, why is that? Also, most of the holders you can buy have them at a slight angle. I thought it was better to keep them flat. Thanks in advance for you response 🙂

    • Marlene – just like the Stampin’ Write Markers, Blendabilities are two-sided (writing/painting tips at both ends). If the are stored at an angle, then the ink will pool to one end. You want the ink to be evenly distributed inside the marker. I hope that makes sense.

  18. Great ideas….that’s how I store my washi tape too!

    When do we get a tour of the fungeon?

  19. Those racks are also fabulous – out of their box – for storing clear blocks.

  20. Great way to use those pretty storage boxes in a different way, love the idea for the markers, they do need to be stored horizontally and this way they look pretty too.
    Thanks for sharing.

  21. Brian THANK YOU for the awesome storage tip but even more, for the great laugh you gave me when I was preparing to have my mind buh-lown!! You are a crack up, keep it up!

  22. Genius! Genius! Genius! 🙂 Perfect solution Brian, I love it!

  23. You are a genius! I have one of those large boxes with really big dies stored in them, but didn’t have a use for the trays. I love both of these ideas! Thanks, now I am off to put them to use.

  24. Brilliant Brian! I’m going to go do that right now!

  25. Always too cool to get a peek into your uber organized fungeon!

  26. The small container to hold Stampin’ Up! washi tape is brilliant and I love, love, love it!

    TFS, Brian!

  27. well, how on earth did you know that I have been pondering how to store my washi tape for a couple of weeks? Brilliant solution!!!
    As for the blendies–mine are all thrown in a basket, which, in hindsight, I realized was NOT a smart move. oops!

  28. Brian, super cool idea for storing the washi tape in a classy way. Thanks for sharing!

  29. Great idea for the racks Brian! I have been wondering what to do with them. TFS!

  30. OMG Brian! I got one of those boxes from Great Rewards LAST YEAR and it’s sitting empty right now…well not for long!!!!!! Thanks for the great storage idea!!!!!

  31. Hi Brian – thanks for sharing that idea with the Washi tape – any chance we can see a video of all your CRAFT room pretty please????

    • One day, Priscilla. I can only show it to you in small pieces right now because it’s always in disarray. I don’t always have a chance to pick up stuff before the next big project gets started. One day….soon. 🙂

  32. Great tips Brian, thank you

  33. What a brilliant idea for blendies. As Sharon said, mine were out of their containers thrown in a box. (Bad idea! I now realize the light pumpkin pie is MIA.) But I kept their containers, cut the lids off and now they’re all in a row so very neat. Thank you Brian!!!

  34. Thanks Brian, Love these storage ideas.

  35. BRILLIANT! Wish I’d known of this on Thursday! LOL… just bought a little dispenser for my Washi Tape but I love this so much more!

  36. Nice job Brian – it’s funny how you can look at the same thing over and over and not see alternate uses!

  37. Thank you for the fabulous idea with stuff I already have! Awesome!

  38. Gotta love this great storage we already HAVE too! Great way to see it ALL too. Go Brian! THANKS!

  39. Just had my contractors here to plan out my new craft room, these ideas will certainly come in handy! Thanks for sharing your all around craftiness with us everyday
