How I store my craft vinyl!

So..I’m obsessed with craft vinyl.

I mean who isnt. (and if you said you aren’t obsessed…well you should be. It’s cheap (check.) it’s awesome (check) and it’s colorful (double check)

I always buy mine at Expressions Vinyl

and since it’s so cheap…It has gotten…well….out of hand.

So I thought I would show you the different ways I store my vinyl (cause there is 3 of them)

First up.

A shoe organizer

I bought mine HERE and husband actually mounted it to the wall for me! I didn’t want to lose any desk space by having it sit on it…but I wanted easy access! So he screwed on a board to the back and attached it. We made sure that my silhouette cameo could fit underneath even with the lid open — and drilled  a hole in the back of the desk to run the silhouette wires down to plug in!

I don’t buy rolls of vinyl…only because I have so many fun ideas…and there are SOOO Many fun different kinds of vinyl!!! These shoe containers would be perfect for rolls. But also great for sheets.

I just Group colors together and loosely roll (don’t roll too tight! and I always lay it out flat before I start any project!)  colored rolls of vinyl

okay…that is what I do with with my big sheets/ rolls and stuff I use often!!!

now…onto scraps!!!! how to store scrap vinyl I bought these cardboard magazine holders from ikea….and bought waaaayyy tooo many. So I’ve been looking for places to use them! I’m addicted to using my scraps. (#hoarder) So I love that I can see them and can grab and go! (my kids are free to use these as well! They decorate their chapsticks and barbie houses and who knows what else!) I have one for indoor vinyl, outdoor vinyl and heat transfer…and one for white. because apparently I use that one the most! Tons of scraps!

Vinyl sheet storage my iron on vinyl goes in one. The glitter and polka dot and etched vinyl goes in the specialty bin.

Vinyl is anything smaller than 12×12 and doesn’t fit in my shoe cubby

scraps is actually projects that were sized wrong or the negative space.

and supplies holds my weeding tools, application tools, extra transfer tape, blades, mats…etc.
