Using Scraps

I have been having problems with my scrap organization....or should I has been getting too full and I have been unable to add any more. LOL So I saw on someone's blog a different technique. I was putting all of mine inside file folders that were placed in a portable file box. But Thursday, I went and bought at the dollar store some of those 8.5x11 drawer. Use receive 3 drawers for $6.00. So I bought 4 of them. I haven't transfered all of my scraps I am afraid I will overfill the drawers too quickly. However, I had an overflow of scraps....I think it took me a couple of hours to sort and place it into the drawers. So I am all caught up on that...and I took all scraps for my newst atcs.....Holiday Frog. :)

Love the drawers! I keep my scraps sorted by colors in clear plastic pockets. Many thanks for your comments on my craft area and for visiting my blog.

I hope you'll let us know how your new scrap organization system works for you.

I have colored folders for large scraps and a small clear coupon file for the small ones. I found that it made me use my little pieces and saved the bigger ones for bigger projects.
