Storage is an important topic when dealing with paper-crafting supplies.
For me, it is usually the frustration of not being able to find something that leads to a storage solution. Take yesterday, for example, I was looking for Globecraft & Piccolo Real Rust Embossing Powder (one of my favorite colors). I keep them all in an Art Bin “tackle box” storage container so I can transport them easily for classes. The problem comes when I need a certain color and all I can see is a sea of black-lidded jars.
After pulling out about six bottles, my frustration reached the point of no return and I decided I was going to label the jars right then and there. I shoved my project aside, pulled out all of the jars and grabbed some white cardstock and a 1″ punch.
I punched out a bunch of circles, wrote the color name on top and then stuck them through my Xyron machine.
I stuck the labels to the top of the jars and now I can find what I am looking for quickly and easily!
This, by the way, is the project I was working on

Me, again. I also have little samples of each color with my enamels so I can remember its exact look.
You’re a smart cookie, Candy! I used my label maker for this for the same reason.
